The old town, part V

Depending on from which direction you come this is either the beginning or the end of the old town. The royal castle. In my view it´s pretty far from being a castle. Square and quite boring it still is a great building that takes up a dominating part of the old town scenery but it sure is´nt a castle.
The original castle was completly burnt down in 1697. Having it´s origins from 1250 a.d it was of course a great part of history that vanished. The replacement building, finalized in 1754, did´nt have any of the old castles shape but a more modern one for the time, strongly influenced from France.

Many thanks for all comments. Have´nt been able to answer since I´ve been away with work travelling.

Cool perspective! Looks like the road is going right up into the sky.

This photo is very good. A large road with nobody of it, the old castle with its structutal architecture and then the blue sky with the moving white clouds. It makes a good contrast.
