 Summary:
 The silhouette of the settlement is one of the urban and architectural symbols and a very important parameter for the suitability of the design approach to urban landscape. At the settlement level, height benchmarks are unambiguous markers which facilitate navigation, identification and assimilation of the population with the space that surrounds them. Built structures dominant by their height in relation to their immediate environment, are objects created as a reflection of detailed consideration, and during their planning process, numerous factors were involved and their existence is checked at multiple levels such are sociological, economic, psychological, environmental, and architectural. In the area of Novi Sad, it was found that there are vertical benchmarks in different parts of the city, but the conditions that are linked to them, the period of occurrence, the final expression, morphology, urban conditions, typology, are all different, and a number of similarities and differences has been observed that can be evaluated through the comparative analysis. The study of mentioned conditions can point out to the present state at the level of the city, as well as recognise and valorise the current values and disadvantages which such facilities have. Significant topics related to the aforementioned structures are the issue of identification of citizens with these structures, recognition, appeal and the possibility of their existence in the collective consciousness of the citizens. The aim of the study is to form attitudes that would indicate a possible recommendation for further research and to point out the importance of vertical benchmarks at the level of the entire settlement.
