Bruges is without question one of the most charming places I have been. Between the history, the beautiful architecture, the food, and the overall atmosphere it’s impossible not to feel enraptured. I took this picture on a walk after having Flemish stew at an extremely touristy (but nevertheless amazing) restaurant. #brugge #bruges #medievaleurope #nighttimephotography #veniceofbelgium #sailsandstripes #belgium #quarantineboredomkiller #beautifuldestinations

Monarchs of England 50 ~ King George I of Great Britain - GEORGE I 1714 -1727 Son of Sophia and the Elector of Hanover, great-grandson of James I. The 54 year old George arrived in England able to speak only a few words of English with his 18 cooks and 2 mistresses in tow. George never learned English, so the conduct of national policy was left to the government of the time with Sir Robert Walpole becoming Britain’s first Prime Minister. In 1715 the Jacobites (followers of James Stuart, son of James II) attempted to supplant George, but the attempt failed. George spent little time in England – he preferred his beloved Hanover, although he was implicated in the South Sea Bubble financial scandal of 1720. (Timeline) 1714 - George I, the first Hanoverian King, succeeds his distant cousin, Anne. 1714 - A new Parliament is elected with a strong Whig majority led by Robert Walpole. 1715 - The Jacobite rising begins in Scotland intending to place the ‘Old Pretender” James Edward Stuart, heir to James II on the throne. The rebellion is defeated at Sheriffmuir. 1716 - The Septennial Act allows for General Elections to be held 1717 - Townshend is dismissed from the government by George, causing Walpole to resign 1719 - Daniel Defoe publishes Robinson Crusoe 1720 - South Sea Bubble bursts, leaving many investors ruined. 1721 - Sir Robert Walpole returns to government as First Lord of the Treasury where he remains in office until 1742. He is effectively the first Prime Minister. 1722 - Death of the Duke of Marlborough. 1726 - First circulating library in Britain opens in Edinburgh, Scotland. 1726 - Jonathan Swift publishes Gulliver’s Travels. 1727 - Death of the scientist, Isaac Newton. 1727 - George I dies in Hanover, aged 67.

Impressive medieval Hochosterwitz Castle in Austria. It was built in the 9th century on a steep 160m high dolomite rock. The castle’s name traces back to the Slavic language as the territory where the castle stands now used to be part of Carantania - and ancient Slavic state. Major reconstruction occurred in the 16th century when 14 gates and an arsenal were built and the walls were reinforced. It was done to make the castle invincible against Turkish invaders. According to legend, during one of the sieges the attacking forces were deceived and had to withdraw. The castle garrison slaughtered their last ox, filled it with corn and catapulted it over the wall. They pretended they had so much food that they could use it as projectiles. For the last 600 years it belonged to the same family. Picture by @zeppaio 😍😍🙏🏻👍 . Средневековый замок Хохостервиц в Каринтии, Австрия. Замок был построен в 9м веке на высоком утесе. В те времена эта часть тепершней Каринтии находилась в древнем славянском государстве Карантиния, а название замка восходит к словенскому «Островица». В 16м веке замок основательно укрепили, построив 14 ворот и арсенал, для противостояния турецким войскам, продвигающимся в Европу. По легенде, во время одного из штурмов осаждающая армия была вынуждена отступить. Гарнизон замка забил последнего быка, нафаршировал его кукурузой и перекинул через стену. Обороняющиеся притворились, что у них так много продовольствия, что его можно использовать как снаряды! Последние 600 лет он принадлежит одной и той же семье. . #instacastle #castle🏰 #castlesofaustria #instacastles #castleonthehill #burghochosterwitz #hochosterwitzcastle #hochosterwitz #каринтия #carinthia #medievaltimes #medievalcastle #medievaleurope #medievalarchitecture #medievalfortress #middleages #замкимира #замкиевропы #europeancastles #castlesofeurope #средниевека #средневековье #средневековыйзамок #castlesofinstagram #средневековаякрепость #крепость #замок #austria🇦🇹 #austriancastle #castlearchitecture

Karlstejn is a Gothic castle built by Holy Roman Emperor-elect and King of Bohemia Charles IV in 1348 some 30kms off Prague. It is now the most visited castle in the Czech Republic. The castle’s core consists of 3 parts built on terraces: the lowest one houses the Imperial Palace, the middle one has the Marian Tower while the Big Tower stands at the highest level. The fortified tower with a unique chapel with walls up to 7.5m thick has a sophisticated security system. It had 4 doors with 19 locks. Every key was guarded separately. In different times, the chapel kept valuable docs and the symbols of the state power - the Imperial Regalia, and the Czech Crown Jewels. In early 15th c Hussites attacked the castle with biological weapons - they catapulted corpses and dung over the walls to spread infection among the defenders. In the 17th c. the castle was seized and burnt by Swedes. Photo by @tntjukebox 👍😍🙏🏻 . Замок Карлштейн был построен в 14м веке императором Священной римской империи и королем Богемии Карлом IV. Сегодня это самый часто посещаемый замок в Чехии. Он состоит из 3х частей, расположенный на разных уровнях: ниже всего находится императорский дворец, на среднем уровне стоит Марианская башня, а на самый высокой террасе находится Большая башня. Эта укрепленная башня уникальна в своем роде. Внутри - хорошо укрепленная часовня, толщина стен которой достигает 7,5м. За 4 дверями с 19ю замками, ключ к каждому из которых хранился отдельно, лежал госархив, имперские клейноды - имперская корона, Копьё Судьбы и имперский меч - и чешские королевские регалии. В 15м в гусситы атаковали защитников замка биологическим оружием – через стены катапультой были заброшены трупы и навоз для распространения инфекции. В 17м в замок был захвачен и сожжен шведами. . #karlstejn #karlstejncastle #hradkarlstejn #карлштейн #instacastles #instacastle #medievalworld #medievaltimes #medievaleurope #instacastles #castlesofeurope #czechcastle #europeancastles #castlesoftheworld #middleages #medievalarchitecture #castlearchitecture #готическаяархитектура #средневековыйзамок #замкимира #замкиевропы #medievalcastles #готика #gothiccastle #castlesofinstagram #ceskehrady #dronepictures

Reposted from @castles_and_palaces De Haar Castle in Utrecht, The Netherlands. This is the largest castle complex in the country. It was built in the end of the 19th century over the ruins of the medieval castle that dated back to the 14th century. The previous one had a turbulent history - it was seized and destroyed several times but again and again it rose from the ashes. The latest period is linked with the Rothschild family who invested heavily into rebuilding a neogothic castle fitted with what was then the most up-to-date amenities. The castle got electric lighting, central steam heating system, a 6-meter long furnace that uses coal, a set of copper pans and pots. It has 200 rooms and 30 bathrooms. Rothschild motto and Star of David can be seen in details of the castle’s interior, just like the coat of arms of two other noble families who owned the castle.

Путешествия — это свобода? Когда-то я был уверен, что "свобода" — это о том, чтобы взять, и из дождливой Калуги (я там родился) улететь на райские острова, куда-то под пальмы. Хотя, что мелочиться, сразу к звёздам (с детства увлекался фантастикой)! Не, не то. Сбежать от чего-то, да подальше — нифига это не свобода. Если кто-то размышляет о путешествиях в ключе "Вот бы сейчас обрести свободу и свалить из своего Урюпинска в солнечную благодатную Испанию", это не про свободу, это про бегство от самого себя. Вот прямо сейчас я сижу в холодной мокрой Москве и не могу никуда не то что улететь, а даже просто по парку прогуляться, но почему-то чувствую себя довольно таки свободным. Просто потому что занимаюсь тем, что нравится, получаю удовольствие от режима дня, от десертов из ближайшего Вкусвилла, от того, что рядом есть человек, с которым можно обсудить всё что угодно. Всё это к чему: по-моему, свобода и путешествия — вещи разного порядка, они иногда вообще не пересекаются. Однако, чтобы это прочувствовать, всё же рекомендую на досуге взять, бросить всё и улететь куда-то хотя бы на полгодика. #путешествия #счастье #свобода #relationships #travel #happiness #freedom #сирия #замок #krakdeschevaliers #кракдешевалье #castle #syria #instacastles #medievaltimes #medievalcastle #medievaleurope #средниевека

Bayeux, Normandie, July 2007. These days I am enjoying many Proust's Madeleine moments. Tidying you find forgotten things that bring you back to the past. In Bayeaux I saw this tin (1) and today's post will be about this Norman village. It is famous for its 70m long tapestry on the Conquest of England by William of Normandy in 1066, a first order historical document. But there is more to see, like the oldest house (XIVth century) in Rue des cuisiniers (2&3) and Nôtre Dame de Bayeux (5-7&9). The cathedral has two lateral Romanesque towers (XIIth century) and a taller central tower from the XVth century. By the river Aure, an ancient mill (8) and beautiful views. Attached to the city walls, the old door to the Butcher's Market (10), from the end of the XVIIIth century, when this was the most flourishing trade in the village. #bayeux #normandie #normandy #catalunya_vaigers #total_myworld #madeleinedeproust #beautifularchitecture #be_one_architecture #bassenormandie #bassenormandietourisme #fever_old_stones #beautifulhouses #medievaleurope #discover_europe_ #traveleurope #cat_bokeh #traveller_stories #travel_golds #seisa_marinero #mixed_topics #architecturelovers #destinations_captured #somdetalls #voyagerenfrance #

Places I want to visit again, part 2 • The 12th-century chapel of Saint-Laurent and Notre-Dame of Jézeau, located in the middle of the Pyrenees mountains chain, is today a simple parish but in the Middle Ages was an old property of the Hospitallers of Saint John of Jerusalem, a military order responsible for the safety of pilgrims en route to Santiago de Compostela. #jézeau #chapellejezeau #notredamejezeau #saintlaurentjezeau #huntingromanesquechurches #medieval #medievalarchitecture #medievaltimes #medievalarchitecture #medievalchurch #medievaleurope #hospitallersofsaintjohnofjerusalem #romanik #romanesque #romanesquearchitecture #romanesquechurch #artroman #architectureromane #chapelleromane #romanico #romànic #pyrenees #pyrénées #pirineus #hiking #valléedauré #paysdaure #chemindesaintjacques #hautespyrenees #occitania #occitanie

A nice drone view of a huge fortress on a 500m high hill in the town of Harburg, Bavaria, Germany. The Harburg fortress was first mentioned in the 12th century. For some 800 years it has been the property of the famous House of Oettingen. Most of the castle’s buildings date back to the medieval times. The fortress is protected by an impressive wall with 6 towers fitted with walkways and a bergfried. A legend says that the fortress had a well 129m deep and it would take you 13min to get water to the surface (calculate the speed and check if it is true). Large-scale reconstruction was started in the 18th century but was not completed, that’s why the medieval looks of the castle complex survived. Video by @ponyimmortal 😍👍🙏🏻 . Отличный вид на крепость Харбург в Баварии. Впервые она упоминается в 12в. Крепость расположена на холме высотой около 500м над одноименным городом. На протяжении уже 800 лет замок принадлежит одному княжескому роду Эттингенов. Многочисленные постройки, сохранившиеся со средневековья, защищены крепостной стеной с 6ю башнями с боевыми ходами и бергфридом. Существует легенда, по которой в замке был настолько глубокий колодец – 129 метров глубиной – что подъем ведра с водой занимал целых 13 минут (давайте посчитаем, может такое быть или нет). В 18м веке была задумана реконструкция крепости, владельцы хотели сделать роскошный дворец, но планам не суждено было сбыться – только часть была перестроена, остальное осталось средневековым. . #harburg #harburgcastle #burgharburg callenbergcastle #bavariancastles #замкигермании #medievaltimes #medievalcastle #medievaleurope #medievalarchitecture #middleages #замкимира #замкиевропы #europeancastles #castlesofeurope #средниевека #средневековье #средневековыйзамок #castlesofinstagram #medievalgermany #germancastle #germancastles #castlearchitecture #немецкийзамок #instacastle #instacastles #dronepictures #dronepicture #castlesoftheworld #замкибаварии

It is a generally accepted fact that Pope Urban II had the nobles and knights of Europe in mind when calling for the First Crusade, and was primarily trying to gain their attention. Even so, the words of Pope Urban II preaching around France caught the attention of huge numbers of ordinary people. Tens of thousands of peasants and lesser nobles responded to the pope's call for a crusade in 1095. Urban was essentially giving everyone who took part in the crusade eternal penance and endless rewards in the afterlife. Supposedly, all sins past and future would be wiped away. This promise caught the attention of many criminals in Europe. The first stage of the First Crusade is known as the "People's Crusade". From April to October 1096, anywhere from 40-100,000 of these people set out. On the way, they slaughtered the native Jews and massacred those who tried to stop their advance. The Catholic Church condemned these war crimes but to little effect. The mob believed they were doing God's work. Once they reached Constantinople, they were hurried across the Hellespont into Turkey, where the remaining population of the crusader mob was slaughtered by bands of Seljuq Turks. The People's Crusade was wiped out for good at the Battle of Civetot in October 1096. The image of this post is Pope Urban II preaching at the Council of Clermont and exciting a crowd of French listeners. #christian #christians #islam #muslim #crusader #crusaders #knight #knights #crusade #crusaders #castle #castles #war #wars #christendom #holywar #deusvult #history #medieval #middleages #medievalwar #medievalwarfare #medievaleurope #medievalhistory #medievalknights

Have you ever visited #Tallinn? If not, I think you should put it on your top travel destination wish list. A memorable and historic city that I consider one of the best cultural experiences of my life. Though I am not so happy about their consumption of pork for its unhealthy nature, and especially during this pandemic, you can still find places to eat tasty and organic food that takes you back in time to medieval Europe with their Old Town that is wonderfully preserved in a loving postcard of life. To all #Estonia people I miss you and please be safe and stay healthy #travel #traveltheworld #tallinnoldtown #medievaleurope #topdestinations #travelandleisure #discoverychannel

During the crusading period, the "Seljuq Turks" took the grunt of Christian attacks, primarily in Turkey and the Levant. So where had these Muslim conquerors and horse-riders appeared from? The Seljuqs were Turkish tribesmen from the steps who had migrated throughout the Middle East. It is said that they converted to Islam in 950. They began expanding their territory and securing definite power in the Middle East starting in the 1030s. The Seljuq Turks beat the Byzantines at the Battle of Manzikert in 1071. In 1075, the Byzantine cities Nicaea and Nicomedia were taken by the Seljuq Turks. In 1077, Seljuk commander Suleiman declared himself independent from the other Seljuq domains and set up his own state, with his capital at Nicaea. His son Kilij Arslan I was driven back by the crusaders and established Konya as the capital of his state. For reference, the figure in the image is Kilij Arslan, the Seljuk Sultan who fought against the soldiers of the First Crusade. #christian #christians #islam #muslim #crusader #crusaders #knight #knights #crusade #crusaders #castle #castles #war #wars #christendom #holywar #deusvult #history #medieval #middleages #medievalwar #medievalwarfare #medievaleurope #medievalhistory #medievalknights

The Council of Clermont in 1095, where Pope Urban II preached the idea of a crusade, is often cited as the event that set in motion centuries of "Christian vs Muslim" war in the Middle East. Urban II had a number of reasons to promote such a war. Firstly, he had been called on by the Byzantine emperor Alexios I Komnenos in the East, who had lost great swathes of Anatolia to the Seljuq Turks. This entrance of Muslims into Turkey/Armenia had begun in full swing following the disastrous Battle of Manzikert in 1071. It has been theorised that Pope Urban II thought that perhaps he could reunite the Western Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches by helping the Byzantines fight back against the Muslims. Byzantine territory also had many important Christian sites and the west wanted to preserve and protect them from the Muslims. Secondly, the pope had been inspired by wars against Muslim expansion into Christendom, notably those in Sicily and the Iberian Peninsula. The Spanish Reconquista may have gave him his ideas for a crusade. Thirdly, the papacy had been experienced threats to its security and legitimacy, notably the Investiture Controversy, effectively an argument over whether the Holy Roman Emperors had the right to choose bishops of the Catholic Church. A crusade ordered by the pope could solidify the position of the papacy in Italy, and distract the German nobles from involving themselves in church affairs. Finally, the theologian Augustine had claimed that a war was "just" if it was proclaimed by a high authority and involved the taking back of lands. The Christians believed that the "Holy Land" was rightfully theirs and it was their duty to reconquer it. For reference, the image of this post is Pope Urban II's message to the French people at the Council of Clermont in 1095.

The Sant Iu doorway [saint Ivo, patron saint of lawyers] in the north transept at Barcelona Cathedral is the oldest façade of the building, dated back to 1298. Until the late 19th century this humble portico was the main entrance to the cathedral. Its most remarkable features are the marble reliefs on both side of the door, as well as two commemorative inscriptions of the first stone laid, on 1 May 1298. #catedraldebarcelona #catedraldesantaeulalia #barcelonacathedral #huntinggothiccathedrals #medieval #medievalart #medievalarchitecture #medievaldoor #medievaltimes #medievalcathedral #medievalchurch #medievaleurope #gothic #gothicart #gothicarchitecture #gothiccathedral #gothique #artgothique #cathedrale #gòtic #gòticcatalà #goticocatalano #catalunyagòtica #ciutatvella #barcelona #gothicquarter #catalunya #igerscatalunya #cathedral #igersbarcelona

I think a photograph, of whatever it might be - a landscape, a person - requires personal involvement. That means knowing your subject, not just snapping at what's in front of you. 🙏🏼💙🙏🏼
