    I do not believe this visual wonder!

    Vesting Bourtange, village, former fortress and open-air museum in the very north of the Netherlands.

    "During the Eighty Years' War (1568 - 1648), the Spaniards had control over Groningen and the road leading from there to Germany. William, the leader of the Netherlands, saw it necessary to break off communications between Groningen and Germany. He decided that it would be optimal to build a fortification on the Bourtange passage, which was the main road leading to Germany.

    The fort was completed in 1593 in the design of a star fort with a network of canals and lakes which were used as moats (which were also constructed in the design of stars).
    In 1960, the local government decided that to combat this growing problem the old Fort would be restored to its 1740–50 appearance and made into a historical museum."

    The effort and precision that went into these old fortresses, especially in regards to their relatively primitive means, is unbelievably impressive. Who wouldn't want to live there?

    Komárom Fortification System

    In the middle of the Hungary in the 19th century was built the largest fortification system of the Austrian Empire. It needed to stop the conquering of Napolen. When Napoleon conqered Vienna, this citiy became the provisorical capital of the Austrian administration. Hence Marguis Chasteler general of the artillery planned and built the fortification of Komárom called the Nádor vonal means Palatinate Line. It contain the centre fortress between the edge of the Danube and the Vág, an outer starfort line around the old city and 3 fort in the another bank of the Danube. This was the largest and strongest fortification in the Austrian Empire. Under the revolutions and the wars in 1848 this fortress owned by the Hungarian Goverment and the Austrians can never conquer it, the Hungarian commander of the citiy, György Klapka only got the fortress to the Austrian with full pardon for him and the full crew. The largest part of the fortification system is standing nowadays too.

    The center part of the fortress.



    The outer starfort what keep the old city. The northern part with the old city is belong to the Republic of Slovakia. The southern part with the new city is belong to the Republic of Hungary.



    A plan of the fortification system form the 19th century. The descriptions are on German.


    "Remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus,"or that virtue "was not convenient at the time." This will not suffice."

    Ertholmene/Christiansř archipelago, the easternmost point of Denmark, 18 km's off Bornholm.
    It consists of the islands Christiansř, Frederiksř, Grćsholm. Once entirely barren rocks till the 17th century, they were transformed into a harbour-fortress and fertilised with soil brought in from the mainland.









    What it probably looked like in the 18th and early 19th century:

    That's the young princess 'Sissi', later Empress Elisabeth of Austria, born into the royal Bavarian house of Wittelsbach, grew up in Possenhofen.

    The painting shows her on her horse with her castle in Possenhofen behind.
