The Middle Ages were a time in Europe that started with the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th Century and lasted 1000 years until the age of the Renaissance. When you think of the Gothic Period your first thought are always Kings and Queens, evil witches, knights in shinning armor and magnificent castles. In some parts of Europe there are still cities and towns with medieval origins. Even though now they are big and super modern, they still try to keep the legend alive. For history lovers and (architecture) photographers there’s nothing quite like the sight of a medieval walled city approached from a distance. Then there are the explorations within, walks along the narrow streets and shops and restaurants in medieval squares.
Enjoy the tour!
