Stary Dzierzgon Castle Ruins

Stary Dzierzgon, Poland

Stary Dzierzgoń was one of the first Teutonic fortresses in the territory of Prussia.The castle was built in 1234 on the site of a Prussian stronghold. It was devastated in 1243 and abandoned in 1247 when the Teutonic Order moved its seat to the brand new castle in nearby Dzierzgoń. The outline of the moat and the embankments are the only remains of the fortress.

Well, there is not much left of the Teutonic castle, there is only one tower left, which was very nicely arranged by the owners. Taking into account the condition of the castle in which the owners acquired it, and in what condition it is now, it proves how much heart and money the owners had to invest. A place worth visiting, I am very impressed with how many exhibits have been brought from abroad to make this place look like this.

The first time I was in a non-commercial castle. Wlascicel Mr. Ryszard is a very nice man-gentleman with a really great passion. He devoted over 20 years of his own life and money to the renovation of this place, only because it is his passion. At the very end of the tour, you can donate or not (if someone does not want to) a symbolic amount to the piggy bank. And that doesn't happen. Not in these times - it's just a passion and you can feel it every moment and in every word of the owner. Mr. Ryszard shares a lot of historical knowledge. I sincerely recommend! If someone is in the area, I recommend it very much! I personally believe that there are no such places anymore. I greet and encourage you to explore

Nice place to visit. It’s for free only if you want to donate few ,,zl,, to owner. Owner took as on the tower and give us a tour.

If we hadn't got here thanks to our hosts with whom we slept, we would have lost a lot! The great advantage of this place, apart from the fact that it is worth seeing, is the local guide - the owner, Mr. Ryszard. It was thanks to his passion that this castle could come back to life. I am glad that, in addition to the historical values, I was able to get to know the story that someone had a passion, a dream ('Jola let's buy a castle') and followed that voice. I consider the chapel on one of the floors of the tower to be the gem of this place. It perfectly reflects the atmosphere of this place and the Owner's attention to every detail.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
