Although this landmark somewhat resembles the Eiffel Tower, this is in fact the Tokyo Tower. Located in Japan, the tower is distinctly painted in red and white to make it safely visible for planes.

Which country is this UNESCO World Heritage Site located in?

Where would you find this building?
This is an image of Moscow at night. The capital of Russia is distinct thanks to the architecture employed on buildings such as the Kremlin. The colourful yet traditional style of the architecture means that the buildings stand out against the cold natural surroundings of Russia.
This skyline belongs to which country?
The distinctive building which stands out, surrounded by cranes, is the 'Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família', a Roman Catholic church.

This naturally occuring landmark is located where in Europe?
This is the Rock of Gibraltar. Located on the south coast of Spain, Gibraltar is in fact a small British territory, home to a population of around 35 thousand people.

This makes getting to the landmark a challenge, but one which is completed by many adventurous tourists from across the globe.
Which British country is this?

Located in the Scottish Highlands, Loch Ness is the second largest Loch in Scotland, and has a depth of 755 feet.
