Dizzying Photos Taken from the Top of European Landmarks

Photographers and urban explorers Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov were criticized for illegally climbing Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza, but that hasn’t stopped them from reaching new heights. The Russian artists, and “pranksters” as some have dubbed them, have created a new series of photos (spotted on Lost at E Minor) taken from the top of Europe’s most famous landmarks. You can see feet and legs dangling in these images of the Eiffel Tower, the Sagrada Família in Barcelona, and more. In some cases, the spires, stained glass, and other architectural fragments take on a kaleidoscopic effect when viewed from above. See more beautiful, dizzying photos of famous landmarks in our gallery.
