Karlstejn Castle by great-queen-morrigan Karlstejn Castle by great-queen-morrigan
( Czech )
Karlštejn - Roofs arenīt truly Gothic.They were built during reconstruction in 19. century. Oreginal roofs werenīt so impressive.[link]

I hate these orange - violet low class paintings sold under the very castle. I wanted know if Karlštejn is "trap" for artists or I will be able to paint it nicely.
I must admit itīs wallīs colour is difficult to capture.Now I can understand why painters usually made them orange.But itīs not trap.

Made for contest.

So, I want to participate another contest with it "Paint the World"[link] .
I thik it's matching the theme, because it's not only my very very favourite castle, but, also, the most know historical building in Czech, besides Charle's Bridge and Vitu's Cathedral.

Thank you:hug:I catched it from one of the most impressive engles:DThere is another one great wiev but the castle looks very massive from that angle cause it's impossible to see most of the walls and buildings what's a pity.
So I decided for this one:)

I need to visit Europe sometime. Good to get back to one's roots, and also the scenery is stunning as far as I can tell.
