"Where's Waldo" Quiz #1
« on: April 08, 2015, 05:34:11 AM »
Scanning my facebook feed, I found the Mandatory post about the overly excited Russian tourist.

So, naturally, I decided to make a quiz about it:

"Where have the globetrotting Russian taken these photos"?

Let the games begin. Tell us where you believe each picture has been taken, and provide some reason why you believe so.

Congrats on 3 points thus far to Dozus!

He "Captured" those three images, and they are now "his". No one else can get points guessing where they were taken.

But still lots of images to go, and Dozus is eligible to guess again too!

Cooooome oooon, Citadelllians!

#1 is one of the few Russian ports, likely black sea, but I can't tell.  Due to Russian naval flag on the ship.
#5 Somewhere in Germany - German trail line. I suppose it could easily be Austria.
#7 Somewhere in the Ukraine - I've seen that church before, but don't know its exact location.

Okay, that is three hits, though not bullseyes. I give you 0.75 for each answer, AND you own those images.

Dozus 3 pts
valadaar 2.25 pts

Picture one seems to be taken in the city of Novorossiyrsk, or something like that:
https://www.google.com/search?q=Novorossiysk&biw=1536&bih=758&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=3wktVZzZD4HhsgHr5IK4Cw&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAg

Picture 5 is from the Berlin Hauptbahnhof (main train station).

Picture 7 is from the orthodox church of St. Andrews in Kiev, Ukraine.

Well done, valadaar.

Picture 14 might be from Athens b/c the statues look Greek to me? Pic 10 from Turkey (don't know why, just gut feeling)?

Which country is this in?

Answer: Lake Baikal, Russia.

A truly cool place:

Take the info with a pinch of salt, like the loch ness monster ;)

Also, the geography quiz is over and Dozus is the winner.

#10 was from St. Petersburg and I don't even remember where #14 is from anymore.

Well done, Dozus!
