Here’s a photo of a mystery city. Do you know or can you guess where it is and which language is spoken there?
Looks Mediterranean-ish… Let’s guess: Dubrovnik, Croatia (language: Serbo-Croatian).
I’d say Dubrovnik, too- Was my first thought, but… I’ve been wrong before. :P
Lisbon (language: Portuguese).
I have to guesses here about the languages …
although it can be Italian maybe or French, but I don’t have a feeling that it is in Italy or France!
The constructions, specially the church, in the middle of the photo are Portuguese style. So, The country is Portugal, language Portuguese, but I don’t know which city is.
Giovanni got it – it is indeed Lisbon (Lisboa), the capital of Portugal, where they speak Portuguese.
Sorry to correct you, Simon, but “Lisboa” does not have a tilde over the _a_, as you spell it (**Lisboã). I understand the temptation to do so, given the frequent occurrence of _ã_ and especially _ão_ in Portuguese. ;-)
