Milkel castle, surrounded by water on four sides, was founded probably in 1302. In 1719-20 the north tower was built by the Ponickau family and the castle got its current apperance. Today, after 20 years of restoration work, the castle, the cavalier houses, the park and burial places of the previous owners are in a good condition.

Renovierte, hübsche Schlossanlage in einem beeindruckenden Baumpark mit Arboretum. In Volieren vom örtlichen Vogelschutz sind einheimische Wildvögel zu sehen, die aus schlechter menschlicher "Obhut" gerettet wurden. Hier lohnen Spenden.... Wunderschöner, weiter Blick oben vom Schloss entlang zweier Sichtachsen durch den Park - auch im Winter :-) Mit dieser schönen Aussicht kann auch geheiratet werden :-)))

Das Schloss Neschwitz ist sehr sehenswert, von innen und außen. Der Park ist für mich das Highlight gewesen. Wir haben gerne dort gefeiert.

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.
