A szelindeki Büszke vár

Placed between Sibiu and Sighisoara, Slimnic citadel was one of the most powerful citadels. The building of the 12 meters high and almost 4 meters thickness walls citadel began in the 8th century, and suffered many subsequent adjustments. A 70 meters deep fountain can be found inside the citadel. The Turkish did not manage to conquer the citadel, which provided shelter and insulation for the villagers in front of the plague epidemics. The donjon, the walls, the stone arks survived until today offering a special charm to the place.

Köszönöm, hogy kedvencnek választottad, kedves Laci! Nagyon érdekes ez a vár! Laknak benne és a templom helyett ebben a toronyban van a falu harangja. Üdv.! Joli
