I was thinking that its the side of the university, but then again it also looks like a building around the corner from the opera house. Might need a sec on this one :)

...edit. Better pic. University. They always hang ugly advertisements on it

Ok...hmm. I think you got me with this one. I know for a fact that I've walked past this a lot, but drawing a blank.

Is this the same building, but different angle?

The Citadel park is often overlooked, but there's a lot of stuff there, not to mention very important in Polish history...and British etc.

It's actually not really that important in Polish history - much more important in Allied/German history than anything. It's the reason why the park is so neglected these days.

Silly me. Got wrapped up in memories... Where am I?

Not a valid riddle answer ;) We'll just block it out and say it doesn't exist, and there's no history at that site. We'll move on to the topic.

Thank you. Perhaps this will be easier. In what city am I? Great, what is the name of this castle I'm standing behind?

Spot on ;) Was it the "sea" part that gave it away?

I'm American. The top looks like a castle. Don't I get away with that?

I'd post Malbork (my fav), bu it's too easy. Try this:

Actually, no. I visited Kołobrzeg many times as a child and once as an adult, 2 years ago. I thought you made a spelling mistake! :):) Clever trick!!

True, I'd have to think real hard about where I may have seen it. The bricks in the back may have helped, but doubt it :)

Teutonic Castle in Reszel.

You used a nice perspective! It doesn`t look so impressive in reality.
