So we've ruled out Spain, Italy, and Croatia. Does that also rule out all of ex-Yugoslavia, or only Croatia.
Croatia, yes, but why Italy and Spain? My statement was just related to your Zagreb response.

Not France, Greece or Portugal. I have token those pictures myself, very nice location for a short visit. One building is very famous in this city, I guess you will have the answer immediately if you see it.

In post #896, I said "Background buildings seem to be Spanish or Italian" and I thought you had collectively implied those were among the wrong answers.

The only city I can think of that has just "one building which is very famous", is Pisa.

Here are two pics of the famous building. It may not be as famous as the tower in Pisa.

Sometimes I think that the earth crossed the orbit of an asteroid made of huge sheets and blocks of stainless steel, which broke apart, and where they crumpled and landed, they were opened up as art museums. Your picture looks a bit like Denver's, but they are pretty much indistinguishable to me.

You are so funny JT You're one step away - you know it's italy or spain. I just popped into this so will let the other players get it (plus, I don't have a pic ready anyway, as usual). I needed some of those clues, too, btw - and would love to go visit that museum!

Cool that you visited the burgh and rode the incline recently, Douglas! This was a fun challenge - wish I'd been playing along.

No, I don't know that. He just said that I was wrong to interpret that he said it was not Italy or Spain, and that he did not address Italy or Spain.
