When I went there I really didn’t know what I will see but this fortress took me of the hook. It is amazing. All territory is paled and you have to pay for entrance. Hm, funny, it costs about 0,30 Euros.

Those who are looking for amazing bling bling buildings without any dust on it, please DON’T GO HERE! All you will see here it is amazing and massive old military buildings. They all are derelict. You can enter some of these buildings and nobody will tell you “don’t go here, you are not allowed” :)

There are so many buildings that it is impossible to review each of them. Here some pics of it. If you decide to go there to see what I am talking about, please contact me, because I want to go there one more time :)

You can read the history of this fortress in the UNESCO website: http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/393/
