Great! Just great, thanks! Those fortresses are very impressive, in Latvia very few are left in similar state. In Latvia technically are some 140 medieval castles, but most are just meagre remains hidden in tall grass. More or less serious are some 40.

Olavinlinna is spectacular, it is a gem! Turku is very impressive as well. would like to visit them one day.

They are amazing... i highly recommend u visit !



Turku castle after the Soviet bombings of 1941.. everything around the castle was destroyed completely as you can see from the pictures.

King Eric XIV was imprisoned in the castle and all of Sweden was ruled from the castle on numerous accounts.
