Trivia – Where am I training?

Hello everybody!

As you know, last week I was in St. Petersburg at the Economic Forum, then I went back to Moscow, and then took a plane to go to a training camp. Very few people know where that is.

But if with the help of this photo you are the first to guess exactly where it is, I will give you a prize!

Here’s a bigger version of the photo, maybe it helps:

I will now add a hint, a photo of the city center:

Now it should be easier, at least you see the flag :-)

    Thanks for all your guesses! Actually I have 2 winners on Facebook (over 100 guesses). I am now training for chess in a small town of Austria called BURGAU, it’s very nice and perfect for training, it’s a very quiet place.
