    Uncle Target - I wanted to help you. I feel sorry for you. There is no desire to communicate with you anymore.

    My first thought was Budapest and digging a little the dome and towers look a bit like St Stephens Basilica - at the moment thats just a suggestion

    edit - I'm not so sure now, river looks wider and can't see a matching angle

    The reason I asked the question is very simple. A few months ago someone posted a photo wanting information. Several of us spent many hours trying to help but it turned out that the Original Poster knew the answer anyway (he didn't say it was a quiz and it looked like a genuine ask for help) - a total time-waster in his case. Please don't get me wrong; there are superb threads on the Forum which are (obviously) 'quizzes' including threads for naming types of vehicle and aeroplane etc. My view is just that we need to know - 'genuine ask for information or help' or 'quiz'.

    Didn't see your post but I thought the same about it being Budapest.

    There is an open bit of ground in Budapest at the angle to the Basilica but it has a bridge - unless its very new, but as mentioned above from the angles I tried the river just looks much wider - I'm thinking its taken from between the Castle and Citadel if it is Budapest or anyone else wants a look and check then tell me how smart/stupid I am

    I know you say this is not a quiz but please note that I was the first person (my post is #2 in this thread) to reply to you with a perfectly reasonable question and I've been away from my computer for much of the day - I am simply trying to be polite.

    Incidentally the Castle is certainly at Vitre - I've spent many happy hours in that town!

    I'm going back to say Budapest - the clearing on the far side of the river looks like "Vigado Ter" the tower on the left on this side of the river seems to be "Saint Catherine of Alexandria Church" - when I visited Budapest I stayed in the hotel right behind it

    Deffo Budapest.
    I can see the Vigado concert hall on the far bank.

    Bravo, of course this is Hungary and beautiful Budapest.Friends to all, many thanks for the help with the photo of Budapest.
    It is sad that the cathedral in the center of the photo is lost.

    I was going to say Brienne-le-Château , where Napoleon went to military school but the statue & building aren't the same.
    I have a photo stood next to a statue of the young Napoleon statue there but it's not it.
    :(

    Not in France .
    They wouldn't put a statue up to a British Admiral.
