The gold of the north, aka amber, was picked up far in the north at Baltic and North Sea 🌊 and transported down by Amber Road to the Black Sea and Mediterranean Sea. Across the entire Europe! 😯 . Merchants had to cross many lands 🐴 , and many rivers 💦. Bridges were not really a thing then ;) so you needed a shallow water - a ford- to go through a river. And that was always a good place to build - a castle 🏰 or a city. Or both 👍 . . That’s where, in the very center of Europe, on the route between Carpathians and Alps 🏔 and at crossing of ancient routes, at the Amber Road, on a hill overlooking Danube river 💦 , the Pressburg castle was erected. Life and trade flourished there already many centuries before. . . Here you can see Sigmunds Gate located on the southeast corner of the Pressburg Castle 🏰 . . . You don’t know where Pressburg is? 🧐Well, it’s the capital city of Slovakia 🇸🇰 Likely you know it by it’s current, Slovak name: Bratislava. Until 1919 it was commonly know by its German name: Pressburg. . How do you like Danube at sunset ..? Lovely view, don’t you think? 😊😌 . #travel #travelholic #crown #travelphotography #river #sunset #sunsets #sky #castle #tower #old #architecture #evening #lovely #view #orange #hill #brick #gate #spring #weekend #weekendvibes #location #fairytail #shine #pretty #landscapephotography #landscape #nature #enchanted
