Where have all the flowers gone....! Yes, when will we ever learn? Thanks so very much Ank!!
Thanks for a piece of history. And I agree foolish wars. And it seems people never learn. But the building is beautiful.Thanks.
It is, Jo, and they repair it when it's necessary!! It's so much an attraction that they can't afford to leave it on its own. Thanks so very much!!
It has been built on the very top of the country and you can see it from far away. Indeed it is commanding as you say, but still it has been conquered again and again!! Thanks so very much Jan!!
It is beautiful, though, with a commanding presence! Thanks for showing us, Ank!
Still, after all these years, it remains a fine imposing structure!! And a Big one, that still remains for us to see and admire!! Love this adventure!! :) :)
Indeed, it's the word!! But all their foolish wars ruined the whole thing!! What a pity!! Thanks so very much Ardy!!
Wish this could have been completed. It would have been magnificent. Thanks, Hanne, for sharing.
Thanks so very much for your comment exploderator!!
Amazing history, thank you for sharing.
Lots of soldiers patrolled the walls every minute of the day and night and had everything ready if the castle should be attacked. Those times were very unfriendly, Denmark and Sweden were fighting for several hundred years and Oeland was one of the places which was first Swedish, then Danish, then Swedish etc. That is why they stopped building, there was no time for it!!
