Where in the World (270)
The flag of Romania, for those who recognised it, was a big clue to the country of the distorted city. A guess would probably have been correct and with a little research it would have been confirmed.
The road running off into the distance on the left-hand is the Unification Boulevard which is where the more iconic photographs are taken looking in the opposite direction. The original photograph was taken from the ostentatious Parliament Building in the Romanian capital Bucharest.
Congratulations to everyone who identified the city as Bucharest; Atul (@pixodentist), Joanna (@Jazzyels27), Davide, (@travelling_dave) Tim (@timofnewbury), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Beverley (@bevsackville) and Simon (@similtiades)
This week the distorted photograph is an iconic scene often used to sum up the city in articles, guidebooks and postcards. However, it is not the buildings, such that they are, that are iconic.
