Where in the World (240)

Vienna and Prague were both suggested as the identity of last week’s distorted city. While there are similarities the tall column is the giveaway clue. It is the Alexander Column and can be found in Palace Square, St Petersburg. That is, as one reader put it, “the original, not the Florida knock-off“.

Where in the World
St Petersburg, Russia (not Florida)

Congratulations to all those who identified the city as St Petersburg – I am assuming that all answers meant the Russian one not the Florida St Petersburg. Davide (@travelling_dave), Jon (@Sparksjon), Simon (@smiltiades), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) and Tim (@timofnewbury).

This week presents a little bit of a challenge as the top of the tall structure is hidden in cloud. Potentially this would have gone a long way to identifying the city. However, there are other clues to aid in the identity of the city.
