Both sides of 

Auckland

is surrounded by Khauraki and Manukau bays, and is located on a narrow strait between the North Island of New Zealand, the Pacific Ocean and the Tasman Sea.  At first glance, it is reminiscent of the city of sails in Auckland. It occupies a large area, with a population of 1.3 million. In the 19th century, Auckland was the capital of New Zealand before 

Wellington

was awarded this status. Auckland is the largest city and is the business center of New Zealand.
Auckland:

Sky Tower

(the tallest tower in the Southern Hemisphere!) that offers a brilliant panorama of the entire city.

The most beautiful panoramic city view. The harbor stretches ahead where countless yachts glide over the glassy water, lending the city its endearing nickname, "the city of sails".

The Harbor Bridge is 3,346 feet (1,019 meters) long and was built in 1959, tying Auckland with the northern region of the country which was previously inaccessible.

Auckland sees the arrival of many cruise liners, including “the Sun Princess” and “the Diamond Princess”.

The city of Auckland is full of greenery!
 
There is a small, but very cozy Albert Park in the center of the city:
