Well tineye.com got a few hits but nothing to solve the problem... But Google Image Search using your photo as the search parameter was more helpful. One of the many hits was to a blog called The Sticky Egg, specifically the post from November 13 2011 called "Feeling Bookish", which includes an address: De Batavier in Lootstraat, Amsterdam. Then ...
It is the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Romania (some more photos). As to whether it's the biggest building in the world, Wikipedia says: According to the World Records Academy, the Palace is the world's largest civilian building, most expensive administrative building, and heaviest building. But see also the list of largest buildings in ...
It's on the northwest tower of the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC. There's an informative page about it on the cathedral's website: You can see it from ground level, but they advise binoculars. As for why it's there: Washington National Cathedral held a decorative sculpture competition for children... The third-place winner was ...
The one he is probably referring to was actually presented by Venezuela - The Equestrian Monument of Simon Bolivar, liberator of Bolivia, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela from Spanish rule. This statue is at the entrance to Central Park at the north end of Sixth Avenue - The Avenue Of The Americas - so it fits the context of the story well. ...
Here's my guess... Trinity Church, in Serebryaniki Source: http://www.panoramio.com/photo/6837647 (translation)
This is what you want in Google Maps. This Phenomenon is called Danxia landform. You can see more pics here.
I am fairly certain that this is Mt. Adams, second-tallest mountain in Washington State. It is neither Mt. Rainier nor Mt. Baker, because both of those are heavier glaciated. The profile looks an awful lot of what I expect of Adams from the air (I climbed it a couple of times from the ground, and so have a reasonable mental picture, though of course ...
From the files of "don't believe everything you see on TV (especially on Mythbusters)", we have... The Island that you've included the photo for is "Green Island", and is located just off Cairns in Australia. It is most certainly not an 'uninhabited island", and even has a Resort you can stay at for only $600+ per night! Fairly clearly that Island isn't ...
Definitely Hong Kong, with Victoria Peak in the background. Most likely taken from somewhere around North Point - based on the angle I'd say from the top of one of the high-rise buildings in that area. The original photo is posted on Flickr, although without any details of exactly where it was taken. The same photographer has some other fairly impressive ...
This could be the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route. I was also thinking of Gassan, which is in Yamagata. Gassan has a ski season of April to July. The ski season isn't determined by when it starts snowing - it's determined when they've managed to get rid of enough of it so they can open up the roads!
Amazingly it was a kid's competition that got it there. The Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC - where Star Wars villain’s sculpted image sits next to a raccoon 200ft up America’s national house of prayer. A story about it in The Sun. The Wikipedia article on the Cathedral has more information too: The Cathedral boasts what is probably ...
Yes, yes it does. If you click layers on Google Maps, and the Wikipedia layer, you'll also get photos taken in the area. Several are from Panoramio, and are labelled "Zheng Cheng Gong" - see an example. From Wikipedia: Koxinga (Lord of the Imperial Surname) is the customary Western spelling of the popular appellation of Zheng Chenggong, So it ...
Sounds like a variation on פיתה זעתר "Pita Za'atar". It's just a thick focaccia-style Pita with Za'atar (at a minimum)... the local street vendors add other random pizza-style stuff like tomatoes, onions, etc. almost exactly like traditional Neapolitan Pizza. The source of the word "Pizza" is Pita of course... it's exactly the same concept. The recipe is ...
I called IMDB to the rescue. The filming location is: Turtle Bay, O'ahu, Hawaii, USA The photo you have uploaded can be bought It appears to be Green Island in Australia. I did find the location of island mentioned in the question through google image search. To this relatively new feature of google search enables to locate a picture. This can be done by ...
Not contradicting the references to the Darth Vader sculpture on The Washington National Cathedral in Washington I would like to direct you to two buildings in Spain. Sagrada familia is a famous cathedral in Barcelona, Spain. The architect behind it is the late Antoni Gaudi. He is also the architect behind the building Casa Mila. Both buildings are equipped ...
Given the name of this image, I'd say it's Hong Kong: http://img.uuhy.com/uploads/2010/10/hong-kong-rush-wallpapers_6825_1600x1200.jpg EDIT I checked with my friend who lives there, he believes it's overlooking Causeway Bay.
Damn, I wanted to wait for 2 days with answer for this question, and now it had activity :) All I could find is quite uncertain, but it is better than nothing. During the war for independence between Greece and Turkey in 19th century, many Greeks migrated to the Russian Empire, in Georgia. Most of them lived in Tsalka, but many of them had some property in ...
If you are really really curious I may suggest to ask the question directly to the Greek embassy officials in Tbilisi www.greekembassy.ge or maybe contact to tbilisiguide.ge The building is located at the "Sololaki Alley".
From Category:Blue and yellow flags and Category: Nordic Cross Flags on Wikipedia I found only three flags that were a blue cross on yellow. Flag of Kirovskoe Flag of Finnish minority of Ingria Flag of Östergotland Neither of those locations are between Germany and the Netherlands though. There is also a flag of blue on yellow that is a variant of the ...
I believe that it is the Independence Victory Column. It was built to celebrate the successful war(s) of independence of the Baltic states and Poland in 1918-1920. Or maybe you mean the Maarjamaae War Monument on Pirita Beach. This was a World War II memorial.
Assuming it's recent, it's almost certainly between Cusco and Puno. Source? Well, it's circumstantial, but bear with me. I've been there, and the scenery immediately made me think of my bus journey between the two cities. the second carriage (blue and yellow) is the colours of the PeruRail trains. at present, the only routes on PeruRail are Cusco to Peru ...
I finally managed to find a picture of the hotel. As you can see, the name is written on the house. It is called Zajazd Lesny. Travellerspoint provides some more detailed information about the hotel.
If you go to http://images.google.com, then click on the camera icon in the right of the search box, you can enter the url of an image or upload one to search with it. Using this you can usually find the answer in 2 seconds. It gives this page, and tells you that it is the Haghpat Monastery. Hopefully this will be helpful in the future, and to others.
Ah yes! you must have been in Gruzinski Czaczapuri! I am also looking for this lemonade, especially the pear flavour, I think this might be it!
Here are the two most major manufacturers of lemonade in Georgia: Kazbegi Natakhtari Does it look familiar? There is also Zandukeli
During the Soviet period, some scientific research center was established in this building (don't remember the profile of them, any more). In the late 1990s the building was granted by Georgia to the Greek state as a residence for the Greek ambassador in Tbilisi. The building still is uninhabited and looks "as is" now.
Giorgi already mentioned Zandukeli (ზანდუკელი) but here's a photo of a bottle I drank in a local restaurant a few days ago. The bottle was clear but the lemonade was violet. It didn't taste like Sprite though, it was grape flavour. In fact a local Georgian grape variety called saperavi (საფერავი), which makes it quite unique. Sorry it's blurry and not ...
