Planet Earth is a beautiful place. We have immaculate geographical locations given to us by nature and man-made marvels spread all around the earth. But you don’t get the most beautiful views of these wonders by looking at them from the front.
Airpano, a group of Russian photographers capture the pristine beauty of cities around the world by taking mesmerising aerial photographs. Check out a compilation of their brilliant work below.

15. The ever-beautiful Amsterdam
We love Amsterdam, and it is always a pleasure, even on a rainy day, which is not rare here, to stroll along the canals, admiring sailing boats, trying famous warm Stroopwafel with caramel, and enjoying the sound of the church bells. The residents of the city are very friendly and helpful, so no need to be afraid of getting lost, they will always help you find your way. Each year around four-and-a-half million tourists visit Amsterdam, which is about five times more than the city's population. Amsterdam is definitely one of the cities where you want to go back! #airpano #aerial #awesomeearthpics #city #cityscape #architecture #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #discoverglobe #awesomeearth #photooftheday #travelamsterdam
