        Bran Castle / Brasov (Romania)


        Bran Castle (German: Törzburg; Hungarian: Törcsvár), situated near Bran and in the immediate vicinity of Braşov, is a national monument and landmark in Romania. The fortress is situated on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia, on DN73. Commonly known as "Dracula's Castle" (although it is one among several locations linked to the Dracula legend, including Poienari Castle and Hunyad Castle), it is marketed as the home of the titular character in Bram Stoker's Dracula. There is, however, no evidence that Stoker knew anything about this castle. There is evidence, however, that Vlad Tepes actually did use the castle during his raids into Transylvania.

        The castle is now a museum open to tourists, displaying art and furniture collected by Queen Marie. Tourists can see the interior individually or by a guided tour. At the bottom of the hill is a small open air museum park exhibiting traditional Romanian peasant structures (cottages, barns, etc.) from across the country.

          Neuschwanstein Castle / Hohenschwangau (Germany)


          The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as an homage to Richard Wagner, the King's inspiring muse. Although public photography of the interior is not permitted,[1] it is the most photographed building in Germany and is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations.[2] Ludwig himself named it Neue Hohenschwangau; the name Neuschwanstein was coined after his death.

          The reclusive Ludwig did not allow visitors to his castles, which he intended as personal refuges, but after his death in 1886 the castle was opened to the public (in part due to the need to pay off the debts Ludwig incurred financing its construction).[citation needed] Since that time over 50 million people have visited the Neuschwanstein Castle.[3] About 1.3 million people visit annually, with up to 6,000 per day in the summer.[4] The palace has appeared in several movies, and was the inspiration for Sleeping Beauty Castle (1955) at both Disneyland Park and Hong Kong Disneyland.

            Golestan Palace complex, Tehran, Iran.

            Golestan Palace is an example of unique mixture of western and middle eastern architecture.













            One of inhabitants of the Golestan Palace was Nasser ad-Din Qajar, ruling as Shah of Persia from 1848 until 1896. He was the first modern Persian monarch to visit Europe in 1873 and then again in 1878 (when he saw a British Royal Navy fleet review), and finally in 1889 and was reportedly amazed with the technology he saw there.

              Castillo de chapultepec, mexico d.f.

              First of all an apology for my bad English.
              Chapultepec Castle, a palatial building located atop the hill of the same name, in the middle of Chapultepec Park, located in Mexico City at an altitude of 2325 meters over sea level. It was built by Viceroy Bernardo de Galvez and Madrid on the Hill of the Grasshopper (Chapultepec is Nahuatl word "Chapulli, grasshoppers, and sod (tl), hill Chapultepetl" which means "hill of grasshoppers" or "hill of the grasshopper "). Built in the era of the Viceroyalty of New Spain as a summer house for the Viceroy. In 1785, at the time of the Viceroyalty, Viceroy Bernardo de Gálvez ordered the construction of a house in the height of the hill of Chapultepec.
