If you live in some smaller town, you probably know well every part of it. If you live in large mega city area, you probably know well some parts of it, you're aware of some and there are some you probably didn't heard of yet. No matter how well you know your city, there's one point of view you haven't experienced yet. Your city from space.


Here are some of the most known places and cities on our planet as seen from the International Space Station through the past few years. It is really impressive what kind of magic human mind can create. Before we proceed on the photos, let me just quote Daniel Libeskind who once said "Cities are the greatest creations of humanity." Do you agree?
