3. Nyköping. Nyköping is rather small (pop. 27 000) but charming, calm town in Sweden, some 100 km south from Stockholm. It is probably known for transit travelers even more than to Swedes, as Skavsta low-cost carriers airport is located close to the town.

To keep this thread intriguing I won't tell now - you will see. Actually, not too many and countries/cities will start to repeat after some time, of course. But anyway - the places itself will be different and I hope, interesting.

4. Brussels. Old (2005) picture from Brussels - I was there only for few hours, when returning back from Dour music festival (it was my first foreign trip, btw). The city left impression as beautiful, somewhat mysterious place with many interesting spots to discover. It's in my memory like a dream almost - not sure I was really there or not. This picture proves I was Would like to return there for a proper visit some day.

David, this is my personal thread of my own pictures only (btw, it is the principle of this whole subsection of SSC), so please delete your posted pic.

5. Tērvete is fairy-tale place in southern Latvia. It's a nature park, consisted of forest, hills, rivers, castle-mound and human made sculptures, inspired by Latvian children literature writer's Brigadere stories. It's really amazing place, where the calmness of nature can silence ego-mind and open absolutely different perception of the world.

Thanks, Christos!

6. Warsaw. Charming, hilly street leading up to central core of Warsaw's Old Town. Warsaw should be one of the most beautiful cities but WW2 completely destroyed it. Warsawians managed to succesfully reconstruct a part of Old Town though.

I guess since Urban Showcase principle is "a user can post only photos he took", everybody can enter this thread and post the picture he made himself... You may see how different users post their pics in the thread next to this one. In other case you were about to name your thread "EUROPE Daily Photo by *YOUR LOGIN HERE*"
Aren't I right?
Nice pics, by the way

Come on, this is my created thread and I define rules here. I don't have to obligatory name it ".... by Vecais Sakarnis".
If someone wants to create an open thread with similar idea - daily pics from Europe - he can do that any time but why to intrude in others people threads? I don't act like that.
In overall, open threads is a good idea, but when thread author wants to show only his personal pics to keep it in one style then it should be respected, imo.

7. Prague. Prague's aerial views is showing probably the closest cityscape to perfectionism as I've seen. Just look at these rooftops going uphill, mixed with historical spires and the complete, harmonious composition they make. I don't know city which could surpass this.

Saint Petersburg perhaps? Maybe even Rome or Vienna?
