Cathedral Basilica of Ss. Peter and Paul.  It's amazing.  And in all its beauty, it's not my favorite church in Philadelphia.  (St Agatha in West Philly)

 

And for all you skyscraper fans...

The modern city of Constanta was developed by the end of 1800's by the british and americans. So there are lots of old british buildings, and also between the 2 world wars the dominant architecture styles are art deco, modernism and neoclassical.

 

(maybe someone will make some BATs) :P

 

This is the old lighthouse build by the british company Danube & Black Sea Railway and Kustendje Harbour Ltd.

This my city's skyline, Cleveland, Ohio.

cleveland_skyline.jpg

 

Arguably, our most famous skyscraper is the Terminal Tower. It was built in the 1930s as the tallest building on Earth outside of New York. And it still dominates our skyline along with the Key Tower and BP Building. It's lit up at night on holidays and events to represent what they mean (Christmas has green and red, Fourth of July has red, white, and blue, etc.)

This is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, which is another famous building of the city. It was built here to represent Cleveland's heritage as the Rock and Roll City.

There's not too much outside of Downtown, just typical industrial-era architecture and large areas of ghetto.
