    That is Bratislava, Slovakia. Languages spoken there are Slovak, Czech, and you can find German, Hungarian, and English speakers too.

    I’m guessing Luxembourg City, capital of Luxembourg, where Luxembourgish, French, and German are spoken.

    “re” is right, it’s Bratislava.

  4. Simon says:

    It is indeed Bratislava, capital of Slovakia, where the main language is Slovak.

    Looks like my native town 😉 Nowadays it is the capital of Slovakia and the official language spoken there is Slovak. However, before the World War II it was mostly Germany and Hungarian town with only a minority speaking Slovak. Therefore old Pressburgers (Pressburg is the German name of the town and one of the almost 20 historical names) speak all three languages, which are all of them very different.

    If Simon hadn’t answered yet, I would have guessed Liechtenstein. Oh well, I would have been wrong. 🙂

    Wow, I guessed it correctly in my mind. Gotta go buy a lotto ticket right there. 🙂

  8. Aage says:

    The name of the town is Prague. It’s the capital city of Czech Republik.
    They talk czechish.

  9. Caenwyr says:

    I’d go for Prague too. The castle on the hill is the Hradčany, the summer palace of the Austrian emperor. The language is of course Czech.

    okay, I just found out Simon already answered, which makes my answer look a bit silly…
