Tracoscan Castle - Croatia

This is Tracoscan Castle north of Zagreb near the Slovenian border. Much of what is there now is a 19th century reconstruction.

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who contribute to this thread. I definitely feel proud of our great history in arts and sciences that helped us to create such a magnificent piece of land called Europe.

I would like to introduce the castle in my hometown, Bodrum(Halikarnassos). Bodrum is also the hometown of Herodotus. This ancient Greek town is located in the coast of southwestern Turkey.

Construction began in Doric times(B.C.1110) and other civilizations added up on the existing small castle. Currently, it is a huge museum.

In re: Slot Barrland

That's a very attractive place, but wouldn't that be more of a country estate or manor house than a castle or palace?

Berliner Stadtschloss

Reconstruction from the ground up is underway for the Berliner Stadtschloss. This was the city palace for the kings of Prussia and the emperors of Germany prior to 1918. The building was gutted in World War II and the ruins demolished by the Communists in 1950. The reconstruction will restore the baroque exterior with the modern interior being used as a convention center and museum. The following link will take you to the companion site with extensive photos of the planned 500 million Euro building. (If I could figure out how to add an image to this site, I would gladly do so, but no luck there.)

In re: Bellver Castle, Majorca, Spain

Thank you for all of the great photos of Bellver Castle on the island of Majorca in Spain. It was the first European castle that I had the pleasure of visiting when I was a 20 year-old midshipman in the U.S. Navy back in 1959. These pictures certainly bring back good memories.
