Skrøbelev Gods (Skrøbelev Manor) is a traditional Danish estate dating back to 1669. The name has been changed from 'Skrøbelevgaard' to the current name in 2007. It is located on the island of Langeland in the south of Denmark. The Manor House has recently been renovated and is now being used as a venue for weddings and other celebrations. The estate features a large courtyard, surrounded by the main building, green meadows with its display of strutting peacocks, cascading fountain, moat and the bridge which leads you to the church. The Estate has 6 horse stables and the area is a relatively popular destination for eco-tourism and fishing as the island is a thin strip of land, surrounded by the sea on both sides.

Super menneskevarmt og venligt. Rigtig god, vedkommende og engageret modtagelse med rundvisning og gode værelser. Menuen var velkomponeret, meget vesmagende og elegant. Hyggeligt i den store "riddersal ". Med spøgelseshistorier efter kaffen. Personalet engageret og professionelt. Skrøbeløv Gods får gæsterne til at føle sig hjemme og velkomne. BRAVO. Et virkeligt godt sted at besøge.

There is a beautiful area outside the building with a fountain. It gives a beautiful sight. The building inside is modern but is made in authentic old Victorian style. The building itself is plain , but the outside space and the decoration inside makes up for it. Good service generally quite luxurious feeling. The food is tasty and there are possibilities for some flexibility.

Excellent food and service. Though a little pricy and the rooms could need a minor upgrade. The location is perfect near Rudkobing assuming you have a car.

Very romantic place. The food was decent, and the rooms are very nice. A bit too pricy overall unfortunately

Kraków Cloth Hall

The Cloth Hall in Kraków dates to the Renaissance and is one of the city's most recognizable icons. It is the central feature of the main market square in the Kraków Old Town (listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1978).

The hall was once a major centre of international trade. Traveling merchants met there to discuss business and to barter. During its golden age in the 15th century, the hall was the source of a variety of exotic imports from the east – spices, silk, leather and wax – while Kraków itself exported textiles, lead, and salt from the Wieliczka Salt Mine.

Kraków was Poland's capital city and was among the largest cities in Europe already from before the time of the Renaissance. However, its decline started with the move of the capital to Warsaw in the very end of the 16th century. The city's decline was hastened by wars and politics leading to the Partitions of Poland at the end of the 18th century. By the time of the architectural restoration proposed for the cloth hall in 1870 under Austrian rule, much of the historic city center was decrepit. A change in political and economic fortunes for the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria ushered in a revival due to newly established Legislative Assembly or Sejm of the Land. The successful renovation of the Cloth Hall, based on design by Tomasz Pryliński and supervised by Mayor Mikołaj Zyblikiewicz, Sejm Marshal, was one of the most notable achievements of this period.

The hall has hosted many distinguished guests over the centuries and is still used to entertain monarchs and dignitaries, such as Charles, Prince of Wales and Emperor Akihito of Japan, who was welcomed here in 2002. In the past, balls were held here, most notably after Prince Józef Poniatowski had briefly liberated the city from the Austrians in 1809. Aside from its history and cultural value, the hall still is still used as a center of commerce.

On the upper floor of the hall is the Sukiennice Museum division of the National Museum, Kraków. It holds the largest permanent exhibit of the 19th-century Polish painting and sculpture, in four grand exhibition halls arranged by historical period and the theme extending into an entire artistic epoch. The museum was upgraded in 2010 with new technical equipment, storerooms, service spaces as well as improved thematic layout for the display.

The Gallery of 19th-Century Polish Art was a major cultural venue from the moment it opened on October 7, 1879. It features late Baroque, Rococo, and Classicist 18th-century portraits and battle scenes by Polish and foreign pre-Romantics.
