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 (#19) is Bratislava, Slovakia
Where in the World is Gary? #20

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is a time capsule of the 16th Century since its harbor silted up and the town was virtually abandoned for 400 years. It was one of the largest cities in the world during the 14th Century. Life here revolves around the two (2) main squares.
A church here contains a sample of the blood of Jesus Christ, brought back from the Second Crusade.
The cathedral contains a sculpture done by Michelangelo which was the only one to leave Italy during the artist’s lifetime. It is called the Madonna and Child.
Canals are an important part of the ambience here.
