Where in the World (201)

There were some interesting answers for last week’s distorted image. Perhaps most unusual was a reader identifying the city as Mos Eisley. Unsure where this place was I had to Google it to discover why I was ignorant of where it was. Not being a fan of Star Wars I had never heard of the city which apparently features in the series of films. However it did give me an idea of throwing in a random few fictional cities to identify just to stir things up a bit.

Back to the present the German flag and the glass dome (part of which is visible) identify the building as the Reichstag which is in Berlin.

Congratulations to Jackie (@JackiesJourneys), Tim (@timofnewbury), Davide (@travelling_dave), Atul (@pixodentist) and Simon (@similtiades) who all correctly identified the city as Berlin. Also thanks to Steve (@Potlatchsteve) who incorrectly identified it as Mos Eisely but set me thinking about fictional cities.

For those who like this kind of challenge I will be posting a bonus quiz of twisted images to identify. In a move away from cities these will be distorted photographs of natural features around the world. This is, as always, just a fun challenge and I will continue to post the weekly distorted cities. Keep checking back or subscribe so you don’t miss out.

This week’s image is a view from one part of the city to another part of the city and includes an iconic skyline as well as other clues. This city does exist… and is not fictional though several fictional works are set in the city.
