I live in a small town built around the railway and the army.

Monument Circle with the Soldiers & Sailors Monument in the middle of downtown Indianapolis is probably our most famous landmark.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is another famous landmark we have. I love this picture from the IMS website that shows just how large the speedway is.

The Indiana State Capital building is probably a pretty famous landmark as well, though maybe more regionally.

Also more regionally famous is the Central Canal.

And one last regional landmark is the Pyramids office buildings.

I already mentioned the Vrijthof and the town hall, but there are other famous landmarks of Maastricht that deserve to be mentioned, such as:

Saint Servaas Bridge (oldest bridge in the Netherlands; it was built in the 13th century to replace the Roman Bridge that had been used from the 1st century until then)
http://static.nationalgeographic.nl/...t-1-245435.jpg

Selexyz Bookshop (located in a 13th century Dominican church; has been called the "most beautiful bookshop in the world" by The Guardian)
http://www.postgarcia.nl/img/Gebruik...007_000190.jpg

"Hell's Gate" (13th century town gate, oldest in the Netherlands).

^ Maastricht has a lot of well-preserved city fortifications, this is just one example.

Entre Deux (recently rebuilt shopping centre which has won several international awards):
http://www.aura.au.com/uploads/image...20deux%201.jpg

Basilica of Our Lady (11th century Romanesque church in the historic centre of Maastricht):


Mosae Forum (brand new shopping centre):

The Jekerkwartier (this is probably the kind of neighbourhood people imagine when they hear 'Maastricht' - for those who even know what Maastricht is ):

I'll stop now The fun thing about threads like these is that they make you look at your city in a different way. I walk by these places every day but I never really paid them much notice, until now

This is the most recent 'landmark' to be added..

First Direct Arena
http://www.securitynewsdesk.com/wp-c...t_NeonBlue.jpg

This was added back in March.. Trinity Leeds shopping centre, named after the Trinity Church which looms over it.

Sorry, what? There's an economic downturn?

Oh, and I completely forgot - County Arcade, luxury shopping (source embedded).

Kirkstall Abbey - ruins of a 12th century abbey, possibly the oldest 'structure' in the city (1152).

That last pic is a heck of a shopping center! Wow! Is there a history behind it? Like did it used to be something else before a shopping center or did they build it like that?
