Monday Mystery Photo – Last week Mestia

Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location of this week’s photograph or indeed what it might be. If you guess correctly, I will link back to your blog when the answer is revealed the following week.

*N.B. If your comment/guess isn’t showing immediately, it is because comments are released on the following Thursday or Friday of the week the Monday Mystery photo, is posted. That way, everyone gets a chance to guess, without peeking at any of the previous guesses.

New guest submissions of Monday Mystery Photos, are very welcome. Drop me an email, if you would like to submit one of your travel photos, to Monday Mystery Photo. You will find my email by hovering over my gravatar and clicking on ‘Complete Profile.’

This week’s mystery photo was very kindly submitted by Peggy from the blog:

Last Week’s Mystery Photo

Pooja from the blog: Stories from Europe kindly submitted last week’s photo, seen above, which was located in Mestia, Georgia.  It was the first time we have had a photo from that part of the world!

Not surprisingly, it stumped most of us. The closest anyone came was Millie, who felt it was somewhere in Eastern Europe.  Mestia, however, is defintely somewhere you should add to your travel wishlist, not the least because of:

Mestia  is a highland townlet (daba) in northwest Georgia, at an elevation of 1,500 metres (4,921 feet) in the Caucasus Mountains.Despite its small size, the townlet was an important centre of Georgian culture for centuries and contains a number of medieval monuments, such as churches and forts, included in a list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.The townlet is dominated by stone defensive towers of a type seen in Ushguli (“Svan towers”). A typical Svan fortified dwelling consisted of a tower, an adjacent house (machub) and some other household structures encircled by a defensive wall.  – Wikipedia

 

Good luck with this week’s photo. Thanks Peggy for giving us Something interesting to Ponder About

I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.
