Gustav Adolfs church, a beautiful and wonderfully tall Church, is a real masterpiece and grace in this area. This was quite close to where I lived, in StureGatan, Boras. Gustav Adolfs church is a church belonging to Borås Gustav Adolfs parish in Skara diocese . The church was built in 1903-1906. It's more than 110 years old, and if you have ever gone inside, you would never want to come out(if u love architecture), as it is having a very unique, neo-Gothic style of Architecture.

Petersberg Citadel

The Petersberg Citadel is one of the largest extant early-modern citadels in Europe and covers the whole north-western part of the Erfurt city centre. It was built after 1665 on Petersberg hill and was in military use until 1963. It dates from a time when Erfurt was ruled by the Electors of Mainz and is a unique example of the European style of fortress construction. Beneath the citadel is an underground maze of passageways that can be visited on guided tours organised by Erfurt Tourist Office.

The citadel was originally built on the site of a medieval Benedictine Monastery and the earliest parts of the complex date from the 12th century. Erfurt has also been ruled by Sweden, Prussia, Napoleon, the German Empire, the Nazis, and post-World War II Soviet occupying forces, and it was part of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany). All of these regimes used Petersberg Citadel and had an influence on its development. The baroque fortress was in military use until 1963. Since German reunification in 1990, the citadel has undergone significant restoration and it is now open to the public as a historic site.
