The Kremlin of Nizhny Novgorod, 1508-15.

In many ancient Russian towns role castles performed Kremlin. These fortresses in case of danger were the shelter not only for the feudal lords, but for the entire population of the city.
The most famous of them is the Moscow Kremlin. As a rule in the Kremlin were the palaces of the nobility and the main city Cathedral.



Fortress in Nizhny Novgorod is the historical center of the city, the stone belt covering the top of the mountainous Cape and ledges lying on the slopes of the Volga.

Very similar to famous Sforzesco Castle, in Milano. I really appreciate those square shaped italian castles.

REGGIA DI VENARIA REALE, near Turin, Italy.
The so called "Versailles of the Savoia Family" is a huge baroque complex that was left unfinished and went into centuries of slow decay and devastation until, almost 15 years ago, works of restoration of the enormous palace and gardens started turning it into the biggest restoration project in Europe. This palace and garden, alongside other Savoia Castles around Turin is a UNESCO world heritage site. The restoration work is still going on. Meanwhile enjoy some pics...

this is how it was before restoration begun...



ant this is NOW

That photo is outdated, the old steelworks near the castle have been demolished. By the way, even if it was greatly expanded by communists, the Hunedoara steelworks are centuries old. The first modern steel mills were built by the Austrians in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here's a photo taken in autumn 2011.

And as bonus, a photo of the Corvin Castle during the Hunedoara Medieval festival.
