10 Best Architectural Cities of the World

Every city has its architectural wonders, from historic monuments to soaring new skyscrapers. What works of architecture make your favorite city special? If you like to spend your vacation sightseeing, walking trough old town cores and admiring the architecture then this list will help you a lot.

 

Here I have compiled some of the best architecture cities of the world. When I was done with the list I remembered Damascus also has a very good architectural history. So please add cities in comment section which you think I missed.

Florence, Italy


Florence is architectural Renaissance capital of Europe. Things you must see are: Academy of fine arts Art museum the town hall. The churches are also admirable. One of the must see attractions is definitely a medieval bridge Ponte Vecchio.

Paris, France


Paris has it all the Eiffel tower, the Moulin Rouge. The city itself is like a giant museum. The Notre Dame Cathedral, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe… Take a longer vacation to see it all!

Berlin, Germany


Berlin’s old home town is a nice way to start the tour. Some others are Sony Center, the Reichstag the Jewish museum and many others. Since the Wall fell, Berlin transformed many of its buildings. There are also the remains of the Wall to be seen.

Brasilia, Brazil


The city is laid out as a cross abuts when seen from the air it looks like a giant butterfly. It was declared a UNESCO world heritage site. Things worth seeing: Cathedral Basilica, Palacio de Alvarado, the Cultural complex of the Republic.

Shanghai, China


You will find some of the greatest modern work of arts. The tallest building the Jin Mao Tower is definitely worth seeing. In the Oriental Pearl Tower not only you will admire the design of the building but you can go shopping as it’s a mall and a hotel.

Athens, Greece


I’m sure Athens needs only a few words to be said about it: the Acropolis, the Parthenon, Academy of Athens and one of the newest – the Athens Olympic stadium.

Barcelona, Spain


Take a longer vacation for this one also: Park Guell, Palau de la musica Catalana, Hospital de Sant Pau, Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia, the Montjuic Communications Tower.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates


No limits here! They really build whatever they imagine over there. The whole city is an architectural wonder so I won’t be mentioning any buildings in particular. But I must say that not so long ago, it was only a desert and nothing else.

Rome, Italy


You won’t be seeing modern architecture in Rome but seeing the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Sistine chapel, the Pantheon really does it! You must also visit the Vatican.

Chicago, Illinois


The word skyscraper was coined in this architecture wonder. Then you can assume why I recommend visiting it. The Sears Tower is the tallest building in the United States. Also worth seeing are Marina city, Millennium Park and Wrigley building.
