Where in the World is Gary? #19

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#18) is Budapest, Hungary

Where in the World is Gary?  #19

Latitude — 48º 08′ North

Longitude — 17º 06′ East

This is the only national capital which borders two (2) independent countries. It was once the capital of Hungarian Empire from 1526 to 1784. Its Primate Palace contains a “hall of mirrors.”

This city’s castle is prominently orange and dominates the Old Town.



One of the original gates into the walled, medieval town still stands and it’s tower is a prominent landmark.
