Where the Czech...? #57


Jay solved #56 within hours, so let's have another challenge. Anybody recognise this swan's location?

Worth a try Alex, but no cigar, I'm afraid.

Stick around for an upcoming photo of a certain tank graveyard though...;-)

Swan Lake? Heh ;-)

It's somewhere where there's a rise on the bank of the river, where there're houses and then up to the 'feature' building.

I can't work out if it's a river or a lake. My first instinct was Krumlov actually, but I'm probably wrong.

Captain Oddsocks said...

It's not the right answer, but your logic is sound. Czechs sometimes compare the town in the picture with Cesky Krumlov...

Loket? I was only there briefly, but it had something Krumlov-esque about it.

Captain Oddsocks said...

Nup. Wrong side of Prague.

I am not sure, but perhaps Lemberk? Your pictures are getting more challenging. All that time on your bike has given you time to plot.

Captain Oddsocks said...

Heheh! I'm not doing much plotting on the bike-it's all I can do to worry about getting up the next hill!

Lemberk is not right, but you're close alphabetically...;-)

Captain Oddsocks said...

L...e...d..., but it's not Lednice.

Michael Svec said...

OK, now you are taunting us. Since I can't get any work done while this mystery haunts me, I did some Internet work. Is it Ledec nad Sazavou?

Captain Oddsocks said...

It is Ledeč. Apparently it reminds some people of Cesky Krumlov. As a small town with a chateau divided by a river that is popular with canoeists, I can understand the comparison.
Any visitor who goes there expecting the streetscapes and atmospohere of Cesky krumlov is probably going to be pretty disappointed though. Just goes to show locals are not always the best ones to ask for travel advice.
Well done Michael.
