Where in the World (292)

Although featuring numerous canals and islands the distorted city from last week is not Venice. However, it is often referred to as “Venice of the North” because of its watery location. The building featured in the distorted photograph is the Riksdagshuset built to house the Riksdag or Swedish Parliament. This capital city and its watery environs have featured before in “Where in the World…”. The city is Stockholm.


It would seem that the Nordic cities (remember Helsinki?) are slightly more challenging when not seen from the usual viewpoints as there were fewer than usual correct answers and there are a few regulars missing too. Congratulations to Todd (@toddunctious), Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) and Davide (@travelling_dave).

This week’s “Where in the World…” distorted photograph is another challenging puzzle. With that in mind, I have provided two different distorted pictures of the same city. For those who like an extra challenge refrain from scrolling down past the first image. There are no extra prizes for identifying the city from the first picture, just a few kudos points and personal satisfaction. Do let me know when submitting your answer if you managed it without scrolling down.

The second image appears below the advert. Only scroll down if you need an extra clue.
