Once upon a time… there was a beautiful princess with sad destiny, but somewhere, in a far far land lived a brave prince who saved her from the Evil, fell in love with her and took her to his charming castle so they can live happily ever after.  All that we have left from that enchanting story is the castle to remind us from time to time that fairy-tales can be real.
In fact, that’s very true. The real, still-existing Medieval Castles around Europe inspired our (Disney’s version) favorite fairy-tale stories.
So many winters, so many wars those castles have seen, but they are still there for us to see.
All you Cinderellas and Prince Charmings, get ready for the Ball, in one of these Top 10 Europe’s magnificent castles.
