Heute bleiben wir Mystisch wie auch unsere Gegend ist. Gestern machte ich noch ein Foto in der Ortschaft Martjanci wo sich eine der bedeutensten Ghotischen Kirchen Sloweniens befindet. Die einschiffige ghotische Kirche von Martjanci wurde Ende des 14. Jahrhunderts errichtet. Ihre Fresken malte der aus Radkersburg stammende Johannes Aquila. Die Gestalt von Sankt Martin erscheint auf mehreren Fresken des Chors (Martin teilt seinen Mantel, Martin erweckt jene Menschen wieder, welche für Christis kämpfen, der Tod von Sankt Martin) der derzeitige Altar und die Statie von Sankt Martin wurden von Jože Plečnik im Jahre 1925 gefertigt. Besonders interessant sind jene mittelalterlichen Graffitis, welche zwar die fresken am Chor beschädigt haben, aber heute bereits als historische Denkmäler gelten. #mitelalter #badradkersburg #geschichte #visit #exploretheworld #history #tourist #travel #travelphotography #travelingram #travelpic #travelnow #travelporn #traveltheworld #travellover #europa #traveladict #traveltime #historylover #historyplaces #travelbag #traveltips #turist #travelguide #ghotic #theworldguru #ruinedcastle #kirche #church #slowenien

I just saw #TheManWhoInventedChristmas 🎄💚 It’s about how #CharlesDickens came up with #AChristmasCarol 📖 I can’t wait to review it, but here are my first impressions 🙌🏻 - As a #PeriodDrama fan, a #HistoryLover, an #Anglophile and a total geek for #EnglishClassics, this movie was a feast for the eyes, the heart and the mind! 👌🏻😍🇬🇧 - As a #Writer I found fascinating with how the film portrays the way #Dickens “lived” with all his wonderful characters 📝 - I LOVED that #WilliamMakepeaceThackeray appeared 😁 He wrote #VanityFair #ANovelWithoutAHero which is one of my favorite books! - It reminds me why I love the #VictorianEra, Writting and Reading 🤷🏻‍♀️🙈 - #DanStevens was a delightful Dickens! So fun, and it’s interesting to compare his portrayal with that of #RalphFiennes in #TheInvisibleWoman. Adds layers to the man behind the legend! ⭐️ #TheMentalTraveler #EbenezerScrooge #ChristopherPlummer

A Spanish Treasure Ship, or at least a working replica of one. So the treasure ship as we know it was actually called the galleon, and it was not exclusive to Spain. The galleon was an improvement over the carrack (the original European exploration ship), and was the primary naval and transport vessel of most European powers between the 16th and 18th centuries. While the carrack tended to be a lightly armed transport ship, the galleon was built to be primarily a warship. Galleons could range wildly in size (500-2000 tons) and style. For example, the English built smaller faster ships while the Spanish were known for building larger tanky versions, as evidenced by Spain's failed invasion of England with their famous Armada. As mentioned up top, Spain (along with other colonial powers) used the galleon to transport the riches of the New World back to the Old. In fact, the galleon was so versatile that even after it stopped being used as a warship, it continued to be used for commerce well into the 19th century (think Napoleonic Wars). Quite an impressive life span! . . . . . . . . . #exploration #thestandard #versatile #galleon #warship #treasureship #navy #naval #navalhistory #european #europeanhistory #spanishhistory #history #historynerd #historygeek #historybuff #historylover #historyisnow #historymakers #historymaker #historyclass #historymade #historyrocks #historylesson #historygram #realhistory #realhistorylesson #knowyourhistory #reenstagram #reenstimemachine

Article credit to history.com Contrary to popular misconception, Red Square’s name is completely unrelated to the crimson color of its numerous buildings as well as to the Communist Party’s association with the color red. In its earliest incarnation, Red Square was known as Trinity Square, in honor of Trinity Cathedral, which stood on its southern end during the rule of Ivan III. From the 17th century onward, however, Russians began calling the square by its current name, “Krasnaya Ploschad.” The name is derived from the word krasnyi, which meant beautiful in Old Russian and only later came to mean red.🌸🌎❤️ #moscow #russia #instagrammers #history #historylover #travelphotography #travelblogger #travel lover

Close up of the remains of a pillar that once held the backstage balcony area in the large Roman theater in Lyon. You can see the skill and intricacy of the Roman masons 2000 years ago. Any Roman ruin is amazing to see and the theaters in Lyon are particularly top notch. Remarkably well preserved and still used today! Check out my short guide to seeing the theaters (website in profile) if you are in or are going to Lyon. #ancienthistory #romanruins #roman #lyon #france #gaul #history #historylover #historybuff #historynerd #historic #historicalplace #romanhistory #architecture #architectural #amphitheater #galloromain #ancient #ancientarchitecture

The dogs don't recognize their master and they begin to chase him. Terrified, Actaeon tries to flee, but he's unable to outrun his pursuers. One sinks his teeth into Actaeon's haunches and holds him down as the others descend and Actaeon is torn apart by his own dogs. #awesome_earthpix #jaw_dropping_shotz #justgoshoot #wanderlust #main_vision #master_shots #splendid_earth #exploretheglobe #natgeo #travelworld #keepexploring #theglobewanderer #rebels_united #instaamici #affair_weekly #thisweekoninstagram #historylover #historygeek #historic #hdr #hdr_flair #hdr_lovers #dogsofinstagram

On August 16, 1814, at the mouth of the Potomac River, a large fleet of British warships and support vessels under the command of Vice Admiral Alexander Cochrane joined with the British ships already in the Chesapeake area. The plan to attack Washington was formed. On August 19,1814 the British Navy landed a force of 5,000 British soldiers and marines at Benedict, Maryland. After destroying Lower Malboro, the British Army marched to Upper Marlboro where they located a number of gunboats that had been commanded by Joshua Barney and had been menacing British ships in the Chesapeake. On August 24, the British Army met an American force compromised of Maryland and District Militia at Bladensburg, on the Northeast outskirts of the District of Columbia. Despite advantage in numbers the militia under the command of General William H. Winder was unable to stop the British advance and ultimately retreated toward Georgetown. By nightfall the British troops had entered the city. After allegedly being fired upon, the British began to burn and loot public buildings. The flames from the burning of the city were visible for 60 miles in the night sky. On the afternoon of August 25, a delegation of prominent citizens from Alexandria, left through this port and went to Washington to surrender their city. Admiral Cockburn responded to their proposal with only saying, "Gentlemen, I have nothing to say till you first tell me whether Captain Gordon is in sight of Alexandria or not." Gordon's squadron had not arrived in time to assist in the attack on Washington. The British Army began to make their way back toward the ships at Benedict leaving Washington in ashes. - - - #travelworld_addiction  #beautifuldestinations #wonderful_places #culturetrip #dametraveler #travel_drops #wonderfulworld #travelanddestinations #instatravel #traveladdict #travellove #bestplacestogo #roadtrip #nexttravel #seetheworld #historylover #historicalplace #historic #historical #travelusa #exploreusa #ustravel #usroadtrip #Museide  #adventureculture #adventureawaits #goexplore  #worldview #lovetravels  #americanhistory
