Last week’s twisted photograph was of a European city known for its cathedral or Dom. This was, for a few years, the tallest building in the world until a certain Gustav Eiffel built his tower in Paris. It’s distinctive Gothic twin towers dominate the city and are a distinctive feature of the skyline when viewed from across the Rhine. The city is Cologne and has, as Tim (@timofnewbury) pointed out, already appeared in these posts once before. Just to keep everyone guessing I do occasionally throw in a duplicate but it is always a different view – same city, different view.
As I mentioned in Where in the World (67) this post is pre-scheduled so there will be no list of winners until next week. Those who correctly identified the city will know who they are anyway.
As it is Christmas Day I thought it appropriate to have a Christmas theme so I have twisted a photograph of a Christmas market. The task is still the same, identify the city.
As it’s Christmas and I am feeling generous I have included a second city and its Christmas market. This one is not so easy or well-known but, as a clue, you might want to focus your research on the building behind the market.
Can you identify both cities in this week’s Where in the World…? You can leave your answer in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW68. If we mutually follow each other on Twitter then you could send me a direct message with your answer, not forgetting the hashtag #WITW68. You can also leave your answer under the post referring to this on the Travel Unpacked Facebook page (please like the page while you are there). Good luck.
