My favourite one:

Sychrov Castle, Liberec Region, Czechlands

- It is unique example of Neo-Gothic castle from second half of 19th century. Large park surrounds the castle.
- In 1820 the castle was bought by the family of Rohan, French aristocrats exiled by the French Revolution who decided to stay in the Austrian Empire. The 125-year-long ownership by the Rohans proved to be the most important in the castle's history.
- Collections: The castle boasts a collection of around 250 portraits of the Rohans, related families, and French kings. It is the largest collection of French portrait paintings in Central Europe. Sychrov hosts unique glass paintings by Jan Zacharias Quast.

Kalemegdan Fortress – Belgrade

[IMG]http://i53.************/332ow0n.jpg[/IMG]

Kalemegdan is a fortress and a park in an urban area neighborhood of Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. It is located in Belgrade's municipality of Stari Grad. Kalemegdan was declared Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance in 1979, and it is protected by Republic of Serbia.


The oldest parts of Belgrade Fortress Kalemegdan date back to the first century AD, when it served as permanent Roman military camp. The Belgrade fort itself (split into the Lower and Upper towns) and the surrounding area (the Kalemegdan park) are located on the point where the river Sava flows into the Danube, which today means an amazing panorama but once was the main cause of repeated invasion and war over this strategic point. Because of this, Kalemegdan today bears witness to the many centuries of various conquering cultures and arts.

Being divided into four sections, Kalemegdan is certainly worth visiting . The lower town, the upper town, the Little Kalemegdan and the Great Kalemegdan offer visitors many sights, like Orthodox churches (Ružica and Sveta Petka), the attraction Roman's Well (Rimski bunar), the Military Museum , Museum of forestry and hunting and many other places of interest. Also, what appeals to visitors most is the amusing Kalemegdan 's Zoo.

Going for a walk through the gorgeous park and nicely-arranged and colourful flowerbeds is undoubtedly a perfect way to spend your afternoon. People who prefer sitting can relax on the many benches in the park, or in the narby cafés and restaurants. One of the most pleasant places is, surely, the sunlit Kalemegdan Terrace , a café with a garden ovrelooking the magnificient and breathtaking union of the two rivers. Watching the sunset or just sipping famous Turkish coffee or a fruit juice is a tremendous experience on the Terrace. It is also a unique opportunity for photographers or nature lovers.

However, the walk through the fortress itself, through its old narrow passageways and many bridges can be an illuminating experience. Seeing Nebojsa Tower (Kula Nebojša) can be exhilarating and moving. Initially serving for defence, it was later transformed into dungeon where many prominent Serbian patriots died. It is currently being reconstructed with the aim of creating a multifunctional hall for various cultural purposes and performances. Tourists and visitors will soon have the opportunity to see a permanent exhibition relating to the history of the Tower, to watch theatre plays or take part in public speeches.

What is also interesting to mention about Kalemegdan is that its National Observatory , which is situated on Dizdareva Kula 's terrace, enables Belgraders and visitors to observe astronomical objects, using telescopes-refractors every Friday and Saturday throughout the year.

[IMG]http://i53.************/21kbibq.jpg[/IMG]

Many monuments and statues , as well as the Art Pavilion Cvijeta Zuzorić , the Music Pavilion , the Grand Staircase , sports and tennis playgrounds and restaurants can be found on Kalemegdan.

A memorial monument of handing over the keys of the Belgrade Fortress is located at the place where a Sultan's declaration was read on 19th April 1867 , which stated that the fortress was submitted to the administration of Prince Mihailo Obrenovic and the Serbian army. It is a work of art by a sculptor Michael Paunović.

All in all, whether you want to take a stroll around the beautiful park, to survey the many museums in the vicinity, or just ramble around the mysterious paths of the fortification, you cannot fail but conclude that Kalemegdan is a never-ending story . Dazzled by the overwhelming beauty of the surrounding nature, a visitor can never regret coming to this powerful place which tells the tale of former times, the tale of slavery and freedom.

Old Croatian royal town of Knin

Knin is an old Croatian royal town where, permanently or temporarily, the four most powerful Croatian kings ruled. Therefore it is not strange that even today, on a hill right next to the town, stands a military fort, the second largest fort in Europe. Its construction began in the 9th century.
