Where in the world could the following photo be found?
Last week’s Mystery photo was a difficult one. It was a statue located outside the local swimming hall in Thorshavn in the Faroes. Here is a reminder of what it looked like:
As the Faroe Islands are part of the Kingdom of Denmark, Gerard answer was correct! Thanks Gerard for participating!!! Well done!!

Each Monday, I post a mystery photo, or occasionally a mystery object. I do encourage you to leave a comment if you think you might know where this week’s mystery photograph is located, or what it is.
If you guess the location of the above photograph correctly, I will credit you the following week and post a link to your site/blog.
Tara from After the Rain and Snow from SnowMeltsSomewhere correctly identified last week’s mystery photograph to be a structure in Malta/Mediterranean Sea. Excellent work, girls. It was indeed something called the Azure window, in Gozo, Malta, and isn’t that sea so azure? At least it looks like on my computer’s resolution!
Gozo is just one of the 21 islands that make up the Maltese archipelago. At a crossroad of civilizations, Gozo has, at times, been inhabited by Phoenicians, Arabs, Sicilians, and in more modern times, the French and English. Sincere thanks go to Millie Thom for submitting this fabulous Photo for last week’s post. Perhaps Millie can tell us a little more about it?

Will you hazard a guess at this week’s photograph?
Here is a reminder of last week’s photograph:
Tara thought it might be Bulgaria, whist Gerard (Helvi) and Suvi guessed the Baltic region and they were not really too far wrong. It was actually from Sweden! Although I knew it was potentially Stockholm, I thought it may have been a street scene from Gamla Stan, but it was Södermalm. Terrific guesses everyone!
SnowMeltsSomewhere revealed that it is a street scene from a central area of Stockholm, called Södermalm. The houses are old, very old, but they are still lived in! Marvellous!
The name Södermalm (“suthraemalm”) is first mentioned in 1288 in a letter from Bishop Anund of Strängnäs. Until the early 17th century Södermalm was mainly a rural, agricultural area. Its first urban areas were planned and built in the mid 17th century, comprising a mixture of working class housing, such as the little red cottages of which a few can still be seen in northeastern Södermalm, and the summer houses and pavilions of wealthier families, such as Emanuel Swedenborg’s pavilion, which is now in the outdoor museum Skansen.[Wiki]
Good luck with this week’s photograph!
