The world is full of iconic vistas and landscapes, from rolling hills to dense concrete jungles. Buildworld has sifted through Tripadvisor user reviews and mapped the landmarks and structures with the most stunning views in every country – turizmus.com reports.

The rankings were based on the number of times the phrase “beautiful views” appeared in the reviews, TimeOut wrote based on Buildworld’s survey.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Eiffel Tower in Paris came top for its 360-degree bird’s-eye view. In second place was the Empire State Building in New York, and in third place was the Sacré Cœur Basilica in Paris.

The Fishermen’s Bastion (Halászbástya) in Budapest is among those making the top 10, taking fifth place in the world’s most beautiful panoramas with its spectacular views.

There are lesser-known sights that made the top 10, such as the Chapel of the Holy Cross in Arizona and the Hallgrímskirkja Church in Reykjavik. In Asia and the Middle East, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai offers the best views, based on a combination of user reviews.
