' #Vienna has constructed dozens of pieces of unique modern architecture without affecting its UNESCO world heritage city center. How? By establishing new municipal areas outside of the centre, especially north of the Donau. This exotic construction is the canopy of the country’s biggest conference centre, the Austria Centre' - @crisgravin.

‘Frankfurt am Main aka Mainhattan is the city in #Germany with most skyscrapers. But there are also architectural gems, like this one, which height does not measure several 100 meters. It’s a recently constructed shopping mall with a wavy facade in homage to #Frankfurt , aptly named “Skyline Plaza”’ - @crisgravin, #lpInstaTakeover #travel

' #Copenhagen is a city like no other; its vibe, culture and of course, the architecture. The variety and uniqueness of the architecture there is like no other, it’s nearly impossible to capture it all during one visit. This is the inside of a traditional piece named Axelborg - @crisgravin, #lpInstaTakeover #travel

' #Berlin is a hot spot to #travel to, the mix of modern and vintage architecture is very unique. A traditional feature there are the various backyards, and this specimen is one of Berlin’s finest, outstanding for its shape and colour. When in Berlin make sure to peek into the backyards!' - @crisgravin, #lpInstaTakeover .

This weekend’s #lpInstaTakeover is from @crisgravin, one of the top 10 Instagrammers we featured in our #BestInTravel 2017 book. Cris is going to be sharing shots of fascinating architecture he's taken around the world. ‘I focus my photography on modern architecture, especially lookups and staircases. For every photo, I take great care in alignment and choosing my point of view, so that no detail is lost in my final composition. Stay tuned this weekend for some of my favourite places, which I look forward to be sharing here on #LonelyPlanet with you.’ - @crisgravin.

#LonelyPlanet #travel writer, @bridgetglee, is currently exploring #Rome , #Italy . This photo is of Ponte Sant’Angelo, which emperor Hadrian built in 136 to provide an approach to his mausoleum, but it was Bernini who brought it to life, designing the angel sculptures in 1668. The three central arches of the bridge are part of the original structure; the end arches were restored and enlarged in 1892–94 during the construction of the Lungotevere embankments.

'I shot this image at #Geirangerfjord , #Norway just as a patch of rain entered the fjord and the sun shined through it. There’s no way you can plan for these moments, but when they come, it’s overwhelmingly beautiful and always worth the wait.' Aaaand that's all for this #lpInstaTakeover , folks! Be sure to follow @kaylapotterbaum for more wanderlust-inducing photography. Thanks for tuning in! #travel
