This puzzle is part 17 of Gladys' journey across the globe. Each part can be solved independently. Nevertheless, if you are new to the series, feel free to start at the beginning: Introducing Gladys.


Dear Puzzling,

I hope that you are well. Today I listened to some wonderful classical music, played in an extremely impressive setting. While going to concerts is something that I can do at home as well, being in an exciting new place somehow makes the whole experience so much better.

Wish you were here!
Love, Gladys.

P.S. Looking for one word of 15 letters!

A sea mammal (7),

A Himalayan city (5),
