    Guess it's time for a bigger hint. They've got no more tigers, but there's still devils.

    Well, that made it easy. It's the Tasman Bridge in Tasmania, Australia. I was mostly looking at South America as it has both bigger rivers and some similar-looking bridges (Rio Niteroi bridge for example).

    Correct. I thought the trees in the foreground would point to australia. Maybe not.

    Australia was one of my first thoughts but a very short and unspecific google search didn't yield any results and the lack of big rivers made me focus mostly on South America.

    Now the first image in a while I didn't take myself, ran out of stuff on my phone.

    Clermont-Ferrand Cathedral - better yet, Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption

    huh, didn't think that through, I don't have anything. I'll have a dig around and post something later or tomorrow - unless someone has a good one ready to go.

    A baroque church, probably a cloister, near a big city. Can't work much with the structure in front, thought it might be a castle ruin at first, but it's placed weirdly and the stones look fake. Also the net that spans it. So my new guess is that it's probably just a mini-zoo or something similar that doesn't help at all?

    Locationwise I'd guess Germany, Czechoslovakia or Poland. This is where I get stuck and can't narrow it down any further.

    It's actually an outlying zoo exhibit...you can't see much of it through the treetops. Amur leopard IIRC. But you did get it pretty much right. Now, where exactly is it...a little hint, this was shot from observation tower that is also part of the zoo complex.

    Edit: just the city name would be satisfactory, I won't torture you with translating the name of the church.

    That'd be Olomouc and the church is the Minor Basilica of the Virgin Mary on Svatý Kopeček.

    Right. Out of curiosity, how'd you find it?

    The Amur leopard hint made it fairly easy. There won't be a lot of places in the Czech Republic with Amur leopards and Olomouc was the one to pop up next to Prague. Locating the zoo in google maps isn't that hard and once that is found the church was easy as well (to find, not to spell as I just copied it from google). I actually came across a picture of it before the hint but I dismissed it because the angle of the pic made it look like the the towers were a different shape and the front of the Basilica make it look bigger than it appears in your pic.

    Do you need a hint or is it simply that no one has seen this?

    I have no idea if anyone else is playing this game, I for one, have not seen this before.
    I can't decide if the architecture of this reminds me of central Europe or Poland.

    Didn't the Dutch drain that swamp of theirs a long time ago?

    Anyway, I googled Netherlands castle in a swamp and got some images for Hoensbroek Castle, it must be the site.

    It is indeed Hoensbroek castle, took the pic when I went for a short bike ride last wednesday as it is only a few km's from my home. Castle in a swamp is a fitting description btw, the name Hoensbroek literally means Hoen's swamp.
