Where in the World (142)

It has only happened  two or three times: a distorted city that no one can correctly identify. The striking red and white building is the Skansaskrapen. Its red and white architecture and shape has earned it  the much more memorable nickname “The lipstick“. The sailing boat, a permanent feature of this particular harbour is the Barken Viking. The building’s real name and the ship’s name place the city somewhere in the Nordic countries. In fact the city is Gothenburg, Sweden.

This weeks twisted photograph is another iconic building that once identified will give you the city. Remember the answer I want is the city not the building. There are huge clues as to which country but after that you will have to do some research unless you recognise it from your travels or your reading.
