Hello again! I am not sure if this topic was presented on the old forum, so I would like to refresh it if there was something like that or set up (if there wasn't something like that, of course) 8-) . So what are the famous buildings of the cities in your country, in your opinion, the most known in the world (the tallest ones, the longest ones, the oldest ones, newest ones etc.)? The sense of this topic is that everyone picks up two or three most famous or important buildings of some cities in his/her country (so not necessarily from the capitals), and present them here shortly. I hope you will accept this and enjoy :)

OK I will start with croatian cities:

ZAGREB

CATHEDRAL

Zagreb Cathedral of Kaptol (Cathedral of Virgin Maria's Elevation) is probably the most famous building in Zagreb, with the spires which can be seen from many locations in the city. The tallest building in Zagreb and the tallest one in Croatia so far, (the towers are 108 m height). The building of cathedral started in 1093, severely damaged because of the earthquake 1880, since then there are two towers (it was only one before). The building can receive more than 5000 people. It is also 46 meters long in width, 77 meters vertically.

ARENA ZAGREB

Arena Zagreb is a multi - purpose spotrs hall located in the southwestern part of Zagreb, the part which is called Novi Zagreb (New Zagreb). It also includes a building complex which name is Arena Complex (Arena Centre), expected to be the larges shopping - entertainment centre in the city (not finished yet). It is one of the newest buildings in the city, opened for the World men's handball championship which was held in January 2009 (opened 28 th of December 2008). It has also the purpose of hosting many musical, cultural and other events. The capacity is:
15 024 places (handball), 16.300 (basketball) and 20.500 (concerts)

DOMOVINSKI MOST (HOMELAND BRIDGE)

Homeland bridge is long bridge over Sava river, 840 meters long (2. 756 ft). It is situated in the southeastern part of the city. The bridge was built in the mid 2000s and finally opened in the spring 2007 after many delays. It consists pedestrians, 4 lanes of traffic, space for two sets of railway tracks.

Great idea

This is a fun looking one you can find in orlando, it's wonderworks. An arcade place for young and old
http://www.destination360.com/north-america/us/florida/orlando/images/s/wonderworks.jpg



Since this is disney we obviously have the famous cinderella castle

http://www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/os/Bottom-Line/images/cinderella-castle.gif




Since Orlando is a big Tourist destination with tons of theme parks we have quite a few roller coasters. A fun one is the Incredible hulk which can be found at the Universal Studios

http://www.greatorlandovacationhouse.com/images/hulk_roller_coaster.jpg



Since Orlando is a young city we don't really have any old and impressive buidlings, it's our nightlife and fun places we're known for such as the "lego" star where you can find a lot of strange looking creatures made of lego such as this dragon in front of the store

There is so much more but this gives you a taste of what Orlando is all about

I like that roller coaster! :mrgreen:

Here are some interesting buildings in Ottawa:

The most famous one is of-course the Parliament Hill! :D

This building is right beside the Parliament Hill (I think this is the dome of the library, which is also part of the Parliament Hill complex)

The sculpture in front of the museum of arts :mrgreen:

Not that many nice buildings in Ottawa. Toronto on the other hand has so many nice buildings, like the CN-tower!

This is SO IMPRESSIVE what I have seen so far:)! Now, I will continue with:

SPLIT

CATHEDRAL OF ST. DUJE (KATEDRALA SV. DUJE)

The Cathedral of St. Duje is the catholic cathedral of Split, the largest city in Dalmatia and southen Croatia. It is also the seat of the Archdiocese of Split - Makarska. It was named after Saint Duje (St. Duje, or Saint Dominus), who was a 3 rd century Bishop of Salona, a large Roman city serving as capital of the Province of Dalmatia. The Cathedral of St. Duje is composed of three different sections of different ages. The main part is Emperor Diocletian's mausoleum, which dates from the end of the 3rd century AD. In 17 th century chorus was added at the eastern side of mausoleum. For that purpose the eastern wall of the mausoleum was torn down in order to unify the two chambers. The Bell Tower was constructed in the year 1100 AD.
This cathedral is considered as the oldest one in the world. It is also a symbol of Split.

DIOCLETIAN' S PALACE (DIOKLECIJANOVA PALA?A)

Diocletian's Palace is one of the most important historic buildings in Split, that was built by the Roman emperor Diocletian at the turn of the fourt century AD. Diocletian built the massive palace in preparation for his retirement on 1 May 305 AD. A monumental court is called the Peristyle. In November 1979, UNESCO, in line with the international convention on cultural and national heritage, adopted a proposal that the historic city of Split, built around the Palace, should be included in the register of World Cultural Heritage.

SLAVOLUK SERGIJEVACA (ARCH OF THE SERGII)

Arch of the Sergii (the other name is Golden gate) is an Ancient Roman triumphal arch, which commemorates three brothers of the Sergii family, specificaly Lucius Sergius Lepidus, a tribune serving in the twenty - ninth legion which participated in the Battle of Actium and disbanded in 27 BC. This also suggests an approximate date of construction: 29-27 BC. The arch stood behind the original naval gate of the early Roman colony. The Sergii were a powerful family of officials in the colony and retained their power for centuries.
This arch has attracted many the attention of many artists, even Michelangelo.

We have a lot of famous buildings so this is just one out of many. The reason why I have chosen to post this particular picture though is that China will borrow her. It's quite uncertain when she will come back, no one knows.

Here she is in her proper location, the only place where she's supposed to be: Copenhagen! :cry:

I am glad you liked it. :D Toronto is a very diverse city and you can pretty much find anything you need there. On top of that there are all these quarts (Danforth - the Greek one, Chinatown, etc.) that make people feel like home and visiting something new at the same time. The best time to go there is in the summer (skip the cold :mrgreen: ) and the clubs at night are great. There are many different European clubs or just European nights. I remember listening a lot of Eurovision songs in some of these clubs. :mrgreen: :lol:

Interesting modern architecture 8-)

I'm not going to post my city's pictures here since I already posted the in the "home town" thread and there's no point of posting them twice.

When I was in Zagreb for a couple of hours (late in the evening, etc.), I probably didn't see anything but the Zagreb Arena. See I've missed a lot and I'm sure there's even more than what you've showed us.

PS I may post photos from Sofia or elsewhere in Bulgaria. :lol:

I posted pics from other towns also, not just Zagreb, because the others did the same.
So now more pics just from Zagreb ;)
