    If I'd had to use my own pictures here, I couldn't post a challenge, because the only places I ever visited were my country and London.

    There's a thread called "Where are you ipadding from?" here in Off Topic. Maybe this is something you'd like to look at.

    It's Centennial Hall. In Wroclaw, Poland. It was designed by Max Berg and constructed from 1911 to 1913. It was built to commemorate the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Leipzig in October, 1813, hence the name.

    Congrats, thats the right answer! It is the world's first billion dollar house. It has thick ceilings, and a normal building of the same height would have about 60 floors. It is designed and constructed to withstand 8.0 magnitude earthquakes on the Richter Scale.

    Nice thread, waiting for the next.
