GOING TO RUIN IN CROATIA
Here is another wonderful edifice that is going to rack and ruin. This Croatian fairytale castle is slowly falling apart thanks to years of neglect.
Sitting atop a tall hill in northern Croatia, Trakošćan Castle looks like a castle out of a fairytale, proudly peeking its spires out above the tree line, but on closer inspection the signs of neglect have started to mar the centuries-old fortification.
In recent years the grounds have been neglected and signs of wear and age are beginning to appear. Despite this, if you have to choose just one to visit while you are visiting Croatia, you can’t beat Trakošćan Castle for sheer storybook looks.
Clancy's comment: What a shame. It looks extraordinary.
