Photographer's Note

*Alba county is known to be the romanian county with the most histoical sights.
*Cβlnic is a village in Alba County(22km from Alba Iulia), Romania. It is known for its castle, which is on UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites.
*he castle, first mentioned in 1269, is very well preserved. Built as a noble's residence, it was bought in 1430 by local peasants and fortified. It consists of a large court surrounded by walls and some buildings adjacent to the walls. In the middle of the court there is a large donjon as well as a chapel. The castle differs from most other constructions of this type in that it is not situated on a hilltop but rather in a depression, much lower than the surrounding hills. This position, clearly inconvenient in case of a siege, can be explained by the castle's first function as a residence, not meant as a defensive construction.
