  1. Play Revolution 9 backwards, and you’ll know in which area you can find this …

  2. Oops, I’m sorry, just play it forward (I get confused by my own hints ;-) ).

  3. It’s not the Northpole, on the contrary…

  4. 51°06′36″ N 17°01′54″ E
    Wroclaw in southern Poland.

    Your 3rd hint and the fact that I’ve found very similar town squares along the east-sea coast made me look again :-)
    (even though I’m a bit short in time lately)

  5. Yes, it’s Wroclaw. Not entirely as beautiful as Cracow, but stil a very nice city-centre, with good beer on nice terraces.

    Clue clarification:
    The Beatles’song’ Revolution 9 contains the frequently repeated frase: “Number nine”. AWAA #9 is the Saltmine, also in Poland.
    Well, maybe that hint was stretching it a bit, but the second one is so obvious that it doesn’t need clarification, I think.
