How good is your knowledge of the cities of the world? Judging by the number of cities you identify correctly from distorted photographs some of you know them pretty well.

Using a new plugin I have created a quiz of a different kind I thought you might try. Can you identify the city by a single statue? Travel Quiz: Statues will take you only a few minutes. It starts with some easy ones and becomes more challenging towards the end. Give it a go and let me know what you think.

“Where in the World…” will continue to be posted each week as usual. Travel Quiz: Statues is the first in an occasional (very occasional) series of quizzes on travel themes.

Where in the World (315)

Several people mentioned the letter “N” on the bridge in the distorted photograph. I have to admit I had paid scant attention to this detail. It seems though that it was used as a clue to identify or confirm identification of the city. The “N” apparently is for Napoleon and decorates what some identified as the Pont Saint Michel. However, it is not the Pont Saint Michel as the building in the background does not form a backdrop to the bridge.

It is in fact the Pont au Change and, because it is a continuation of the road crossing the Pont Saint Michel, is of the same design complete with the decorative letter “N”. In the background is the Conciergerie on the Quai de l’Horologe. All these can be found on the Île de la Cité in the middle of the Seine as it flows through Paris.

Even though some misidentified the bridge they still identified the city which is after all, the point of this weekly puzzle. Some did identify the building correctly and therefore the city. However you arrived at the answer doesn’t matter. Congratulations to then to Bev (@BevSackville), Davide (@travelling_dave), Tim (@timofnewbury), Atul (@pixodentist) and Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) who all identified Paris.

The distorted image for this week is another river, another skyline and several iconic clues. This distorted photograph is less of a challenge. Good luck.
