Bjärsjölagård Castle

Sjöbo, Sweden

There was originally a strong fortified castle Beritzholm few hundred meters from the present Bjärsjölagård Castle. It was built by Valdemar Atterdag in the 1300s and demolished in 1526. Peter Julius Coyet bought the estate from Crown in 1720. There was a lime factory in the beginning of the 19th century and two ovens still remain. The current main building was built in Rococo style in 1766 and the southern wing in 1812. The newer addition on the estate, was built in Romantic, German style in 1849-50, on a hill just south of the old castle. It is a three-story building flanked by two square towers. Today Bjärsjölagård is a hotel.

Old house buildings with limitations. My experience could of been better. Communication as to 'what, when and where' was non existent. Food was served all over the place and cold by the time one sorted out where! Fire alarm about 09am the next morning left myself an partner outside in 5'c without warm clothes for 40min. False alarm caused by personal's incompetence. No apologies! Personal were both arrogant and without understanding. I will never recommend this place for a conference or large celebration because of my total experience. I stayed overnight. Not worth the expense.

Köttet till middagen var inte det bästa, feta sega senor i stora bitar. 6pers i sällskapet vid vårt bord, ingen av oss fick bra bitar kött. Upplevelsen och allt det andra vad bra.

Fint och avslappnande ställe. Trevligt att ha konferens och liknande tillställningar här.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
