Where in the World (278)

Happy New Year from Australia’s west coast where the year is eight hours older than back in the UK. I am not as connected in the Outback as I am at home so this post is pre-scheduled. This means that there will not be a list of winners in this post. However I will be posting these in a future “Where in the World…” post.

The end of 2017 marked a milestone in “Where in the World…” city quiz. For the first time in the five and a half years one reader correctly identified all the cities in a single year. Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) correctly identified all the 2017 cities. Well done Jackie; 2018 beckons.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those readers who have taken part in this weekly quiz. It makes it all worth while. It’s as much fun creating the distorted photographs as it is for you to puzzle over the identity of each week’s city.

Now to the last city of 2017. The building itself was the biggest clue to the identity of the city. All lit up for Christmas it was nevertheless recognised by a number of readers as very distinctive City Hall or Rathaus in Vienna.


Congratulations to all those who correctly identified the city as Vienna. A full list of winners will be published in another post.

The first city of 2018 to identify is one that is well known but rarely seen from this viewpoint. Indeed there are few of the usually clues that help with this cities identity. Despite being a little bit of a challenge there are clues to the city’s identity.

As usual, you can leave your answers in the comments below or on my Twitter feed (@lethers) with the hashtag #WITW278. If you are on Twitter then you can Direct Message me with the answer which will be hidden from. Alternatively, email me with the answer using the contact page – see tab on the menu bar above.

Please use the hashtag #WITW278. It makes finding the answers in a continually changing Twitter feed so much easier; your answer is less likely to be overlooked.
