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.

Goryokaku Fortress

Goryōkaku (五稜郭) (literally, 'five-point fort') is a star fort in the Japanese city of Hakodate on the island of Hokkaido. The fortress was completed in 1866. It was the main fortress of the short-lived Republic of Ezo.

Goryōkaku was designed in 1855 by Takeda Ayasaburō and Jules Brunet. Their plans was based on the work of the French architect Vauban. The fortress was completed in 1866, two years before the collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is shaped like a five-pointed star. This allowed for greater numbers of gun emplacements on its walls than a traditional Japanese fortress, and reduced the number of blind spots where a cannon could not fire.

The fort was built by the Tokugawa shogunate to protect the Tsugaru Strait against a possible invasion by the Meiji government.

Goryōkaku is famous as the site of the last battle of the Boshin War.
