I'm guessing hte French part of Canada. They seem least likely to crawl on their knees, so it seems mostly to me.

Pretty sure it is indeed Montreal. We were on the on/off bus a couple of years ago and made this stop. Could see the old baseball stadium in the distance.
Edit:
Here you go

It is indeed St. Joseph's Oratory in Montreal. My family lived in a block of apartments just to the left (north) of the picture. I still recall looking in awe at ll those crutches mounted in the alcoves and the woods around Canada's largest church made for excellent playing grounds.

Here’s the menu on the window, on a main street in this town.
Despite the suggestive name and menu all patrons wear clothes! And yes, it is an after dinner establishment.[Linked Image]

I've heard of this place and I know there is more than one but I've never seen them. One in Key West and at least one in Savannah. The seahorse doors make me think it's near the water and your clue about the highway makes me think of A1A or US1 so I'll go with Key West.

I saw those two cell towers and vegetation and thought of St. Martin, but I don't recognize those hotels/apartments. And the hills are too low for that to be Pic Paradis. The only other island that built up that comes to mind is St. Thomas, but I'd have to google to find out where. Perhaps Red Hook?

Wow - I didn't think I was going to guess it. I had thought of the resorts south of Red Hook, but google maps just told me it was north of Red Hook. But I'm not proud (quote stolen from "Alice's restaurant") and will take that as a correct guess.

Which city is this?

This is not in Holland. The first photo is the pedestrian zone of this over 800 year old city, the second is of the headquarters of an organization that every adult citizen of this country knows, and fears (and it's not the local equivalent of the IRS).

There looks to be an 'onion dome' in the background of the pedestrian photo, the original has flags (hard to see though) that could be Russian and those folks still fear the KGB so I'm going out on a limb and guess St. Petersburg.

This city is about 1400KM (870 miles for those still using the archaic imperial system) from St. Petersburg. "Fear" might have been an exaggeration regarding this government entity, "healthy respect" might be more appropriate.

There's a common saying and popular T-Shirt logo that says:

"<this city name> is just like a payback card. Collect enough points and you get a bicycle" (n.b. it loses a bit of poignancy in translation to English)

Bremerhaven is close, only 150 km as the crow flies but 328 km by car and is further away than Hamburg from this city. It has a population of over 90,000 so isn't a small town

xrayman67 - you've got it. Was it Google or did you know which town it was?

While Flensburg is a pretty city, every driver in Germany knows of it because the central German authority for driving licenses resides there. The number of points on your license is stored there, hence everyone in Germany knows about "points in Flensburg". If you get too many, you lose your license and get to drive a bicycle smile

That is a fascinating piece of information, thank you. That is why I like this game so much, the things you can learn.

The St. Kitts and Nevis flag on the boat looked promising, but the read of the background doesn't match. Are we further north than St. Kitts here?

Since nobody has chimed in, I'll guess that we have Soper's Hole / West End of Tortola in the BVI in this picture behind the schooner.

Arnd, you are correct! We sailed by this tall ship last time we were down in BVI. She was a beautiful sight!

It wasn't an easy one - but I know that area far too well smile

I spent time in this city/country. I was doing irregular work at the time and it was exciting (frightening at the time).
Where could this be?
