Re: another photo

That's one city I never got to when living in Europe. I missed the Baltic states (except for Poland, which is not really considered one) as well.

The Poland pics are all almost immediately found by Google, unfortunately.

a clue

The building on the left is about 160 years old. The one on the right had a dramatic building history; it was, as it were, an affair of state.

In the opera and ballet world these buildings (and the companies) are famous.

Where?

A resort town by a sea - not sure how easy this might be.

The building dates back to 1914, has a Roosevelt named space/square nearby, and is only a few km from a 2021 MotoGP race track

A very small republic is not a great distance away.

Now away to bed down here.

There was a council in the 4th century (not far away from this place) which declared that region Catholic in opposition to Arian.

These were all excellent clues. I suspect there is a remembrance of Karl Marx nearby, as well?

The clues were intended to be tempting enough to keep the game moving and it appears that we now have three past the post - who will be brave enough?

Correct Hans and thank you - no need to apologize.

The Misano World Circuit is the nearby MotoGP race track and San Marino is the very small republic.

Over to you.

In case you need some recovery from the Rembrandts, Rubens and others you may look out of the window:

Looks like its near a city in the former 'Zonenrandgebiet', where about 40 years ago I had to listen to a (rather boring) speech, delivered by the mayor, who later became our Minister of Finance.

Or, where 30 years ago, they opened their brand new modern ICE train station, to find out they had completely forgotten about the toilets! (factually not 100% correct, but it was all over the news like this in those days. Actually the toilets were just a little delayed, because there was some controversy between city and architect where to exactly have them).

Back in the early seventies, whenever our guesthouses/bars here in my area closed at 1 a.m. and we still felt like another beer, we drove with our bikes to a café/bar near Trier, that was always open until 4 a.m., with live music/bands and everything. The café's name was the same as this castle's. A bit too complicated to pronounce for some US GI friends, so they just called it 'the shoe' (also the way 'Kaiserslautern' became 'K-town').
