    No, Canada doesn't really have a Pentagon. But you could call it the Pentagon of the nineteenth century. It's the Quebec Citadel, a British fortress which in its time was the most powerful on the continent. My guess is that if it had been attacked during the nineteenth century, it would have been impregnable if defended by any force to speak of. Currently, it is a prime tourist attraction and the home of the Van-Doos, Canada's only French-language military regiment.
    Here are some more pictures:

    Pyongyang looks like a pretty place, but it looks to be a ghost town rather than a city.

    What the hell are cities New York, Paris, San Francisco and Seattle doing on this thread? This is supposed to be a thread of LESS well known skylines.
