Solo Foxer #1

Unlike the formidable Friday foxers, the Monday kind are designed with lone truth sleuths in mind. Roman, my Chief Foxer Setter, assures me the following brainteaser can be solved single-handedly. Crow all you like in the comments section, but please don’t spoil the puzzle for others by sharing solutions or dropping hints.

“Where am I?”

(Using the following clues in combination with Street View, Wikipedia, and other online tools, work out my location. The answer will appear under next Monday’s solo foxer)

I’m standing outside an ice cream parlour that’s named after a fruit. The parlour is on a tree-lined street named after a US president. I share latitude with one of the world’s longest railway tunnels, a US state with a smaller population than Rotterdam, and an island that’s also a PC game. I’m 30 metres from a statue of an armed man and 260 metres from a parliament building. I’m in a tramless metropolis that has a twin city in common with Brno. There are as many vowels in the name of that metropolis as there are consonants. I’m in a country that has never won a medal at a Winter Olympics or hosted a Formula 1 Grand Prix. I’m 19 miles from an international ferry port. I share longitude with five landlocked countries. I’m not in Pont-à-Mousson.
