There was a similar case with a German who could guess a photo of the Autobahn based on the guardrails.

C'mon Chris... How did you guess it?

It is a motorway-cross at Cyprus: A-1 and A-5


(next time I will post a photo in the thread to guess in my country I will send you via PM if you want because they are harder, as well located only in one country)

Cyprus is usually considered Southern European.

Is that a crystal clear truth?

I can agree on the southern side being a member to the EU, but how about the Turkish side north of the demarcation line? Or is the green line the boundary between Europe and Asia?

bfff.... I was thinking in saying yeah, but really it is Asia (close to Turkey and Middle East).

If it would be hard, the first hint would be a country of EU...

Some years ago there was a similar game on the Italian SSC. But it was more restrictive: only Italian autostrade and only street view pics. A22 was excluded because it's the only Italian motorway with brown guardrails.

However, if someone posts here a pic of a motorway with extremely shiny crashbarriers and black smooth asphalt we all know where is it.

Malta is Europe. Pantelleria and Linosa too. Lampedusa it's Africa.

Why? The Denmark strait divides Europe and America.

The border between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates actually runs through Iceland, but Iceland is closer to Greenland than Europe, and Greenland is North America.
