    Fairly easy, all I had to google was "statue in a lake" and this popped up.

    It is indeed Konstanz/Constance. The statue's name is Imperia, a reference to a story by Balzac about a prostitute named Imperia during the Council of Constance.

    I am quite sure this is "Tauric Chersonese" near current Sevastopol, Crimea. I can't really explain but one glance at that sea made me think "got to be the Black Sea"

    That was just a blind guess... Troja was filmed in Malta and Mexico, therefore some place in Malta.

    Muizer seems much more on point, to be fair.

    The ruins are of the 1935 Basilica, at Chersonesus, Crimea.
    Muizer is correct and has the next turn.
    Apologies for the delay, if any other player is owed rep by me, please, leave a post on my wall.

    Yes, but I'm looking for something a bit more specific.

    Alas no. The location actually has a quite famous name. Many will heave heard of it, though probably without knowing this is what it looks like.

    The only things I can think of with quite famous names are Mauna Kea and Maui, guess I'll go for the former.

    Ok enough. I'm calling it. Paleologos wins for guessing it's Hawaii.

    It is in fact Mauna Loa.
