Mark, you are correct on all points. This area was once part of the Holy Roman Empire (albeit at the outer extent), it is an inland salty sea with cruise ships, flat, arid, mostly ugly concrete architecture.

Capt. Vimes - yep, those waters belong to the Black Sea. But before you get the baton you should narrow it down a bit.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

i know that i have seen that before... but cannot pin it down...
my old memory fails at me again...
if i am at least partly correct, it should be at the entrance to some of the bigger waterways there... i just cannot find it.

i let you other guys give it a shot because i would not know what to post next, if i would have guessed it...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Capt. Vimes - you got it, Sevastopol and the monument to flooded ships is correct, and we'll just agree that at the time of guessing it did indeed belong to the Ukraine.

Monument to scuttled ships

All yours!
