Where are these faces looking out onto?


Sigh, no winner this week. I really hate it when this happens, but don’t worry I’ll let you all know where it is anyway. This is a picture of  Saint Blaise, the patron saint of Dubrovnik, Croatia. The statue of St. Blaise above is from the main entrance to the walled old city and greets visitors as they walk across the moat into the city. Dubrovnik is a beautiful medieval city on the southern coast of Croatia. We visited for the day while we were staying in Kotor, Montenegro. Let’s see who can guess next weeks location correctly.

Welcome to Travel Photo Contest Friday. If you’re a new friend, each week I post a beautiful picture (at least I think so) from my travels and you guess where it is. The first person to guess where this picture was taken (Country, and good luck with the Place) will win a link back to their blog with the anchor text of their choice in this post (keep it clean and relevant).

This week I’m making it extra hard but also quite easy to guess just about anywhere :) Leave your guess and recent post in the comment section below. Last week Claire was the first to guess My Homestown of Jamestown.

I will also stumble and review the latest post of anyone who leaves a comment even if the winner has already been picked (up until next Thursday). I’m a bit behind on the Stumbles and reviews as I’m swampped with work at the moment, but don’t worry I always get you in the end. Yes, the prizes heavily favor the blogging and travel geeks amongst us. If you don’t have a website, then leave your favorite website or better yet a charity that deserves attention.

Good luck!

Guesses aside, all comments are welcome!

    It’s not an Orthodox church; it’s a fully rounded image and the crosier is wrong. Montenegro is a good choice (those areas of Venetian heritage, anyway). I’m gonna go with: I think that’s St Eligius, or at least the iconography fits (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Eligius). So let’s say Belgium.

  5. Hmmmm putting two and two together here… could it be Kotor, Montenegro?
