On a high escarpment on the right bank of the River Nogat in Northern Poland not far from the Baltic Sea stands the largest brick castle in the world - a monument to the rare masterly skills of medieval builders. For seven centuries the monumental silhouette of this impressive edifice has awed onlookers by its magnitude, profusion of various defensive devices, the thickness of its mighty walls, the boldness of its construction, and the richness of the carved details. Covering an area of over fifty acres, the stronghold is actually an amazing complex of three castles joined together into a single entity by a system of expansive fortifications.

That's the one. It trully is a massive construction. I felt rather overwelhmed by it. The city is Malbork. Lotta history there. Spectacular place.



in your hands, Sirikit..

Cape, looks we need a clue or two. Almost looks like a picknic area in the park. Lamps/lanterns could be for some sort of a field for concert, or some sporting event lighting. I have no idea what the "sculpture" signifies. So I give up.

Fence and lamps suggest a tennis court to me. Is that fellow sitting behind the blue part of the sculpture sunbathing? Is the fellow at the top of the hill laying out a ground-sheet and about to also get some rays?

Germany or South Africa???

Questions, questions

seacue, appears the folks are getting ready for some action to be performed later this day. (I am sure by now it took place)

I was thinking in the same line, tennis or golf practice/shooting. The sculpture apears to bear the letter V and the botton one is C...or something like that.
As Capetonian has/did not provide(d) any more clues, I give up. Maybe you can post something to entertain the folk while someone figures his piccy out, please. If not, I have one...

Monument to the September 1968 Caravelle crash. Edge of Nice Airport. If so, open house.

Well done Bushfiva, that's precisely what it is. I was going to post a clue late last night but sleep got the better of me, and the clue would have been either that it's near an airport, or that there is an aviation link.

As a matter of interest, how did you get that? I am impressed, as ever, with the level of knowledge and ingenuity of people here.

The other clue I thought of posting was this, which is not far away geographically, does anyone by chance know where this rather attractively painted door is to be found?
