Blue-hour view of the free-standing bell tower of the Pula Cathedral, Pula, Croatia. The present-day cathedral came into existence through a series of expansions of pre-existing 5th-century religious buildings, whereas the baroque-style bell tower, located in front of the basilica, was added in 1707 and was built using stones taken from the Roman-built Pula Arena.

View of Benidorm, touristic capital of the Costa Blanca (literally White Coast) in the Land of Valencia, Spain. The shot was taken from the Cross of Benidorm, located on the summit of the Sierra Helada. Benidorm is a town with 73,000 inhabitants throughout the year, but with a peak of over half a million in the summer season. It is the town with the third greatest concentration of tall buildings in Europe, after London and Milan. Within Spain, Benidorm is positioned third, behind Barcelona and Madrid in the total number of skyscrapers, but nevertheless, Benidorm has the most high-rise buildings per capita in the world.
