THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TOLEDO´S PHOTOGRAPS. BUT IN MY OPINION THE BEST THING OF TOLEDO IS THE TIPICAL PATIO. INFLUENCED BY THE ISLAMIC TRADITION ALL THE HOUSES WERE BUILT WITH A VERY SIMPLE FACHADES , AND A FANTASTIC PATIOS.. AS THE "HOFFE" IN GERMANY OR NETHERLAND.

THE HOUSES WERE BUILT TO LIVE ARROUND THE TIPICAL PATIOS WITH PLANTS, ANIMALS AND THIS IS MOST BEAUTIFUL THING OF TOLEDO.. THE SPANISH TRADITION IS MIXTURE OF NORTH- EUROPEAN AND ISLAMIC TRADITION AND THE CITY WAS NOT TO BE LIVED OUTSIDE FULL OF TOURISTS...

IN FACT THIS IS ONLY PROBLEM THAT I SEE IN TOLEDO, CARCASSONE, ST. GIMIANNO.. IS THE TOURISIM, IS BETTER VISIT THIS KINDS OF CITIES IN DECEMBER, JANUARY OR FEBRUARY.

THE URBANISIM IS FANTASTIC, THE "PATIOS", THE SINAGOGUES, THE CATHEDRAL... IS A REAL MEDIEVAL CITY.

alot of these cities aren't medieval cities. I've seen many towns with the Gothic/German architecture here in NY from german influence. They were built in the early 20th and late 19th centuries...


Some other medieval cities/towns/whatever

Old Bazaar in Skopje



Castle in skopje


Kruja Castle in Kruja, Albania, It was home to Skanderbeg the national hero of albania who defended against the turks for many years.






There are many medieval sights in the Balkans, there aren't just in Germany or England. In Albania you'll find my ancient architecture including some from antiquity and Roman era as well as Medieval ones.

I am completely enchanted with these medieval tows. My biggest dream on life is to visit some of them especially the German medieval tows. If someone could send me blanked postcards from some of them , I would love it! I can send some of my land too. Here we do not have castles but we have nice colonial cities and some of them are UNesco sites! Private me if there are some people interesting on change them!

Wow!!!! Rothemburg is one of the places I more dream to visit someday!! I love it! I love Fachwerhäuser! Other dream cities on Germany for me are Nürnberg, Bamberg, Bremen, Lübeck, Heidelberg, etc. The " Märchen Route" and the " Romantic Route" are my favorite and I love too the castles from all Germany!

I'm very glad i live in the old world these places are brilliant! I'm fond of Bratislava in Slovakia which i don't think has had a mention yet. Bern, the Capital of Switzerland is very nice too. I'll show some pics of British medieval towns. This is York in the North east of England.

these old towns look like Disneyland in a nice way, but they are real, they just seem too perfect to be real though. So glad we have been able to preserve them.

But it doesn't, actually, because Disneyland was created (maaaany years later) to look like these fabulous towns. There towns should be the marker of absolute almost artificial beauty, and there is no place for mentioning Disneyland here. Neither in good, nor bad meaning.

Ugh, I want to live in Europe so bad! Texas sucks balls, its all suburban bullshit and weve destroyed most of what little history we had here. You guys in Europe have beautiful cities like this about every 20 miles and just so much history everywhere. I would die and go to heaven if I could somehow live in Europe and get a decent paying job.

Those towns combined would make a great weekend getaway arriving into Gdansk. As many times as I have been to Gdansk, never once have I set foot in the towns above (except Torun), but always dreamed of doing so, so much amazing Gothic architecture.
