Sorry for he pictures being dark, they were taken in late afternoon with an analog camera, and since they're scanned I couldn't digitally edit them to add some light

I'll go take a shower now and will be back later.

I'm surprised that you know it! It's among the city's least known monuments and lies off the beaten track.Yes it's used as an exhibition center now, and housed the city's archaeological museum until the 1960s when it was transferred to that bland modernist building.

I found it but I'll let it to someone else to guess. I first thought it was in another city in the same country.

Anyone wants to take a shot at this unique building? If not, Brazilian or Ani can tell where it is and post the next picture.

It's the Yeni Tzami (Greek transcription of "New Mosque" in Turkish) in Thessaloniki, originally built as a mosque for the city's Jews who converted to Islam, and serving now an exhibition center. Is that how you call the city in Romania? (sounds the same as the Arabic name)

No. Europe is correct and Budapest is the closest.

Good one, the building with the green roof looked very Germanic/Central European.
