Historical dalen hotel. a dragon style building still operating as a hotel today. it was opened in 1894 and was once a place where european royalty would visit. it was taken over by german forces during ww2 and completely stripped for parts so to speak. anything valuable inside was sold off. it was restored in the 1980’s and reopened in 1992. it has won several awards for outstanding historical remodelling. today we weren’t able to go inside because of contamination control and rules, but i hear that it is severely haunted! 👑👻 #dalenhotel#historicalhotel#telemark#dragonstylearchitecture#dragestil#norway#fairytalehotel#fairytalecastle

the famous eilean donan castle, is a small tidal island where three sea lochs meet, loch alsh, loch duich and loch long, in the western highlands of scotland, dating from the 13th century.
the name eilean donan, or island of donan, is most probably called after the 6th century irish saint, bishop donan who came to scotland around 580 ad. there are several churches dedicated to donan in the area and it is likely that he formed a small cell or community on the island during the late 7th century.
the first fortified structure was not built on the island until the early 13th century as a defensive measure, protecting the lands of kintail against the vikings who raided, settled and controlled much of the north of scotland and the western isles between 800 and 1266. from the mid 13th century, this area was the quite seperate “sea kingdom” of the lord of the isles where the sea was the main highway and the power of feuding clan chiefs was counted by the number of men and galleys or “birlinns” at their disposal. eilean donan offered the perfect defensive position.
by the 16th century a hornwork was added to the east wall to offer a firing platform for the newly introduced cannons.
in 1719 the castle was garrisoned by 46 spanish soldiers who were supporting the jacobites. they had established a magazine of gunpowder, and were awaiting the delivery of weapons and cannon from spain. the english government caught wind of the intended uprising and sent three heavily armed frigates the flamborough, the worcester, and the enterprise to quell matters. the bombardment of the castle lasted three days, though met with limited success due to the enormity of the castle walls, which in some places are up to 14 feet thick. finally, captain herdman of the enterprise sent his men ashore and over-whelmed the spanish defenders. following the surrender, the government troops discovered the magazine of 343 barrels of gunpowder which was then used to b**w up what had remained from the bombardment.
Zawsze myślałam, że zamki warowne budowane były w górach, żeby móc obserwować doliny 🤔. a oto proszę, na środku rzeki stoi zamek. a czemu tam? został on zbudowany w tym strategicznym miejscu, jako punkt poboru opłat celnych za żeglugę po wodach renu.
warowny zamek pfalzgrafenstein usytuowany na wyspie falkenau, otoczony wodami renu, znajduje się w pobliżu miejscowości kaub (nadrenia-palatyna). wchodzi w skład doliny Środkowego renu - wielkiego zespołu zamków położonych pomiędzy koblencją, bingen a rüdesheim.
zamek nadal można zwiedzać, ale aby się do niego dostać konieczna jest przeprawa przez rzekę łódką 🚣, która odpływa co pół godziny. oczywiście za opłatą 💵.
jeśli macie ochotę zobaczyć troszkę więcej z tej okolicy, zapisałam dla was w wyróżnionych pod nazwą "dolina renu" kilka wspomnień z tego miejsca 🥰 🥰 🥰

Bory-vár - castle of love in hungary 💕
the castle was built by just one man - jenő bory - who embodied his love to his wife in this small but beautiful monument.
as legend has it, bory promised his beloved wife to turn their life into a fairy tale - literally - and kept his word. it is really difficult not to feel like a princess waiting for your knight to come👸what a nice moment of relaxation in the feminist era:d
there is a lot of mystery around the castle of predjama, the largest 'cave castle' in the world.
the castle was built 800 years ago in the middle of a 123m high cliff and still guards one of the entrances into a system of secret tunnels behind him.
the renaissance castle was a home to slovenian robin hood, erazem of predjama who set on his plundering expeditions from the very castle and its tunnels... until his last day when he met his end... while visiting the bathroom, sitting on a toilet!
the story is famous in slovenia and interesting, but the castle is even more so!
