Koblenz. The prince-elector's castle, built around 1770, one of the last of its own. Just two decades later and this world would fall apart.

Kudos, Cyprus! Show them that there is an alternative!

Great shot Manfred, love your comments re Cyprus :-)

@Curly: Thanks, Curly! Walking tall is better than bowing to pressure, I think. (Yes, I know, things are complicated, but we're told there's no alternative for more than 20 years. And we still don't know where this path is leading to.)

This is the kind of illustrated postcard that I'd love to have in my collection!This OLD LADY looks untouched by the passage of time...or is it only an impression?!

@Japanalia: It was restored only recently. And indeed, it's looking like new.

@franz: Ja, ein sehr schmucker Palast!

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Wow!! What a monstrosity of a building that you've captured here!! It's the same as yesterday's, but this PoV just gives it incredible scale! Beautiful colors and PoV!
