Where in the World (320)
The larger building on the skyline is one of the world’s most iconic buildings and is the biggest clue to the city’s identity. The Parthenon sits on the Acropolis, a hill that rises up out of the City of Athens.
Congratulations to Davide (@travelling_dave), Tim (@timofnewbury), Atul (@pixodentist), someone at Global Grapevine (@globalgrapevine) and Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) who all identified the city as Athens.
The distorted image for this week is a skyline featuring a notable structure of the city. However, care needs to be exercised as there is another well-known city with a similar structure that it could be mistaken for.

How good is your knowledge of the cities of the world? Judging by the number of cities my readers identify correctly from distorted photographs some of you know them pretty well.
I have created a quiz of a different kind which I thought you might try. It’s a picture quiz but the photographs are not distorted.
Can you identify a 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.
