Karlstejn Castle - CZECH REPUBLIC - UNESCO TENTATIVE
The second card I've got from Radek shows the amazing 14th century castle of Karlstejn, another candidate to UNESCO World Heritage Site in Czech Republic (region of Central Bohemia near Prague). It kind of remind me of some of the castles I've visited in Romenia with that fairy-tale look, simply beautiful. Thank you very much Radek I really must visit your country. This postcard took 7 days to arrive!
Karlstejn Castle surpasses those other castres already on the World Heritage List in the exceptional nature of its ideological calling, which ensured that this architectural composition be complemented by utterly unique artistic décoration. The castle was built in 1348-57 on a spur extending from a rocky ridge in a picturesque, hilly landscape around 30km south-west of the Czech capital, Prague.
