This Friday’s challenge is a photo of an unidentified place somewhere in the world. Can you tell us where the photo was taken? Leave your guess in the comments below — and check back on Tuesday to see if you were right!

Hint: This UNESCO site draws crowds each year to its “happy” colorful grave markers.

Enter your guess in the comments below. You have until Monday, April 28, at 11:59 p.m. ET to post your response. We’ll keep all comments private until then. On Tuesday morning we’ll choose one winner at random to receive an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. Note: Although all are welcome to play, we can only ship prizes to the Continental U.S.

Editor’s Note: This contest has ended. The winner is Liz Lyons, who correctly guessed that this week’s mystery location was the Merry Cemetery in Sapanta, Romania. Liz has won an IndependentTraveler.com travel mug. Congratulations! Stay tuned for more chances to win.
