Neuschwanstein Castle.

Neuschwanstein Castle is one of the most famous castles in the world. According to legend, it is believed that this castle became the creative basis for the Castle Sleeping Beauty, Walt Disney, as well as inspired Tchaikovsky to write the famous ballet “Swan Lake”.

Neuschwanstein Castle is located in Germany in the Alps, in a very picturesque place near the Schwansee Lake. Lake name, translated from German means – Swan Lake. For such reason they call the castle Neuschwanstein – means New Swan Stone.



Burghausen is a small town in Germany. Very close to the border of Austria. It is small for my opinion, but by European standards is the largest town in the Altötting district of Oberbayern in Germany.

This town famous because inside of it you can find Burghausen Castle, is the longest castle in Europe (1,051 m).

Český Krumlov.

One rainy day in Austria, I decided to search in Internet a city that I can visit at the weekend and luckily I found Český Krumlov. Having read that in that city I can see the second largest castle in the Czech Republic, I became interested and decided to visit it.

Getting up early on Sunday, I went on a journey. The weather was sunny and the highway in Europe very comfortable. So, I expected my little trip successful.
