I hope you could enjoy the image flood. Had to compensate for the lack of photos so far, somehow.

See you in lovely Schwerin!

It's bigger and better proportioned than Neuschwanstein, while being less kitschy - but not less romantic. It was suggested it should go UNESCO World Heritage for being the most refined example of romantic Historicism - and I agree.

It's more refined and has some historical background too, but it's not so iconic

Leeds Castle, Kent, England



Leeds Castle is in Kent, England, 5 miles (8 km) southeast of Maidstone. A castle has been on the site since 1119. In the 13th century it came into the hands of King Edward I, for whom it became a favourite residence; in the 16th century, Henry VIII used it as a residence for his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. The castle today dates mostly from the 19th century and is built on islands in a lake formed by the River Len to the east of the village of Leeds. It has been open to the public since 1976.

Inside the building is the main throne hall of the Moscow princes and tsars were all ceremonial events during coronations, as well as the reception of foreign ambassadors. The area of this immense hall of almost 500 square meters, high double-height arches to support the single pillar in the center of the hall. The name "faceted" - the chamber received on the Eastern facade with its traditional faceted diamond band, made of white stone, typical for Italian Renaissance architecture.

^ Certainly one of the best (and sadly very few) Russian renaissance buildings!

The Casa dos Bicos was constructed after its owner visited Ferrara's Diamond Palace.
The two top floors were destroyed in the 1755 earthquake and rebuilt in 1983.
