Another view of the bridge, this time with the bazaar along Kujundziluk.
Read that the Old Bridge Area, is an outstanding example of a multicultural urban settlement. There are pre-Ottoman, Eastern Ottoman, Mediterranean and Western European architectural features. It also presented a symbol of tolerance: a shared life of the Bosniaks-Muslims, the Roman Catholic Croats, the Eastern Orthodox Serbs and the Sephardic Jews continued for more than four centuries here. But the conflict in the 90s may have kinda jeopardize the tolerance. Guess all this happen due to the selfishness of politicians, which is also happening in my own country.
Lastly, I am proud that I grew up in a multiracial community!
Переходящий приз для лучшего стрелка. Вручался на год победителю соревнования. Стреляли в птицу. Предположительно соревнование пришло из Германии и первоначально был голубь но так как в католической традиции он означает святой дух то был из политкорректности заменен на попугая. #medieval#museum#bruxelles#belgium#PortDeHall
Podsreda castle, “Slovenia’s most castle-like castle”, has a special place among the castles in the area of the Kozjansko park, since it is still alive today due to rich cultural activities. It is one of the few cultural monuments originating from the Romanesque period in Slovenia that in the past 30 years, thanks to its complete renovation, has evolved from an almost dilapidated state to an important holder of cultural, promotional, educational, social and tourist events.

Once a medieval priory, the eponymously named York Priory is a charming, very dog-friendly inn just a few minutes walk from the heart of York. We stopped when a storm prevented our train from going further and were so glad we did. #york#yorkpriory#chelsea#travelswithchelsea#medieval

Visited this mountain top castle today! The whole town is walled and maintained with beautiful gardens and houses throughout! In years past this fortress was victorious in wars such as 'The war of the oranges!' I wish the wars in my house were so healthy, they are usually chocolate related! :)
