Oops, Jinamgwan in Yeosu, Korea. I don't know where the boat is though.

This shot is taken from the Jinnamgwan looking down to the harbour. You can see a statue of Admiral Yi Sun-sin just off to the right but the Geobukseon is out of frame to the left. It sits on the pier at the waterfront. Apparently it used to be kept afloat. There is also a half scale model just outside the main KTX train terminal.

Admiral Yi used to guide fleet manouvres from up here. He is a fascinating man. Only Horatio Nelson is considered his equal as a naval strategist.

Oh, and just in case anyone is wondering, I was there a week or so back. Fascinating being able to tour that ship. Fascinating place Korea. A most remarkable history.

No ... you did.

Yeosu is the correct answer.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

OK, I guessed where the Palace was but couldn't see the ship replica there. Nonetheless, I will post a photo of a place closer to the western hemisphere's cruiser's routes.

It must be the USA because everyone else uses Celcius.
