I'm 98.7% sure it is Budapest.
You're right, though, it's not the castle. I just remembered the building - apparently it's the Fisherman's Bastion.

I'm 100% sure.

But my photo should be easy to pick. There are two major landmarks in it ... the bridge and something obvious in the background. Should I give a clue?

Why are you talking to yourself.
The men in white coats will be along soon if you carry on like that.

Ah yes. http://goo.gl/maps/OZ475 . Glad you found that, cos it was just screaming Budapest at me from the moment I saw it, but I couldn't quite place it. And we walked right past it and all around that area, so I really should have recognised it.

Re: Where is this place?

OK, here's one of mine. Not the most common view of the place, so let's see if it's a challenge for you guys.

Definitely the Las Vegas version of the Great Wall of China.

While my wife was visiting the Uffizi, I took the kids for a stroll. We walked the length of that wall along the Via di Belvedere searching for a playground. There are none to be found anywhere in that neighborhood. In fact, Firenze is loaded with beautiful sites but is seriously lacking in the playground department.

Re: Where is this place?

Which city is this? Bonus points if you can specify the district:

Close but I believe it's in Christiania (or about 1 block from the entrance)

Firenze of course is a cultural jewel and the Toscana Capital, but Livorno, Pisa, Lucca and Viareggio have far more life

Yes, that's Cristianshavn, in Copenhagen. A pickled herring goes to Patxi.

In suspense as to whether the photo uploaded...(see it did but didn't get it flipped)

Something politically thematic for this week
