    It looks like the Liston Esplanade Café in Corfu.

    Yes, it's the view from the Rosengarten, although there were not many surviving roses in the middle of the winter.

    That looks like a runway to me, am I supposed to know which airport, or something?

    Yea, I feared it might be a bit too difficult because it's a pretty nondescript building in the middle of nowhere in Estonia but I googled "ruined building in lake" and it was the third result in google images so no problems there. Pretty weird place, we stumbled upon it by pure chance on a student trip a few years back and stopped mainly because of the odd-looking hill next to it if I remember correctly. The village consisted of a few desolate Soviet flats, the prison was abandoned but inaccessable and the partially submerged buildings were apparently part of a quarry.

    Over to you again.

    Maybe I was just lucky. The watchtowers on the wall clearly point to a prison. Submerged buildings often point to a reservoir. For the landscape and forest type my best guess was that it had to be a place in the very north of Eurasia. I googled 'prison', 'reservoir', 'arctic'. Whether applicable or not, the view turned up a lot in the search results!

    Next.
