Having grown up somewhere full of old buildings (Norfolk, UK), I’m often blown away by towering modern skyscrapers and city skylines that are nothing but glass and chrome. I recently went to Frankfurt in Germany and because it was so heavily bombed during WWII, there are very few older buildings still standing – in fact, the train station might be the only one. Everything else is glass, marble and metal with a few older-looking buildings thrown in for good measure.

Here are some photos of beautiful modern cities from around the world.
