Szóval itt van pár kép íznek, aztán mehet a follow!

________________________ Książ Castle | Wałbrzych, Poland | c.1292 * Książ Castle is the largest castle in northern Wałbrzych, Poland. Located in the Wałbrzyski Foothills, the castle overlooks the gorge of the Pełcznica river and is one of the city’s main tourist attractions with its history dating back to the 13th century * After Bohemian forces destroyed the first fortification in 1263, Duke Bolko I the Strict ordered a new castle built. Completed in 1292, the Duke took residence at the castle and gave himself the title ​Lord of Książ Centuries later. The second fortification was devastated by Hungarian military and later rebuilt in the Renaissance style, it was eventually acquired by the Hohberg family who owned it until the 1940s * The Nazi regime seized the Castle towards the end of World War II. Supervised by ​SS​ and O​rganisation Todt​ personnel, Książ became part of the vast underground Project Riese complex, a projected Führer Headquarters and future residence for Adolf Hitler. Construction was carried out through forced labor through the nearby Gross-Rosen concentration camp until the Red Army occupied the castle in 1945 * Following the War, Książ was used as a recreation home and cultural center. Much of its interior has been restored and parts of the tunnel complex beneath the castle is used by the Polish Academy of Sciences. A large memorial on the site remembers the ​Fürstenstein​ subcamp and its inmates * Know more?

_________________________ Zwembad Veldstraat | Antwerp, Belgium | c. 1933 * The oldest swimming pool in Antwerp is located in Veldstraat and is a wonderful example of art-deco architecture. “De Veldstraat” not only made a name for itself as a swimming pool, the institution was mainly known to people from Antwerp who did not have a bath or shower at home. They could – usually for a weekly general wash – go to Veldstraat in public baths * The design of this covered “swimming dock” was created by engineer Joseph Algoet, while city architect Emiel Van Averbeke supervised the project on a stylistic level. This art deco swimming pool was extremely modern for its time. The beautiful bathroom with wall tiles and granito floors not only had very progressive hot air ventilation, but also a mandatory passage through the foot baths and showers for the swimmers * In 1998, the building was protected as a monument, and seven years later it closed because the swimming pool did not meet the Vlarem standards. In 2006, an extensive restoration process began. Specialists were called in from all over Europe and even the United States to come provide their expertise in original building techniques. This was to ensure the restoration of the original elements such as the lead glass, the tiles and the radiators was completed in the same manner as it was in 1930s * During the renovation, the swimming pool, changing rooms and part of the bathrooms were restored to their original state and the complex was given new life as an important recreational and social location. The former technical rooms, the laundry and the caretaker’s houses were given a new purpose. They now house a hammam, a bathhouse (including two herbal baths, a cold plunge pool and a hot water bath), a gymnastics and dance hall, and a brasserie * Know more?

________________________ Invicta S-Type | Surrey, England | c. 1931 * Invicta is a British automobile manufacturer that has been available intermittently through successive decades. Initially, the manufacturer was based in Cobham, Surrey, England from 1925 to 1933, then in Chelsea, London, England until 1938 and finally in Virginia Water, Surrey, England from 1946 to 1950. More recently, the name was revived for the Invicta S1 sports car produced between 2004 and 2012 * The manufacturer was founded by Noel Macklin with Oliver Lyle of the sugar family providing finance. Assembly took place in Macklin’s garage at his home at Fairmile Cottage on the main London to Portsmouth road in Cobham, Surrey * The Invicta cars were designed to combine flexibility, the ability to accelerate from virtual standstill in top gear, with sporting performance. With the assistance of William (Willie) Watson, his mechanic from pre-World War I racing days, a prototype was built in the stables of Macklin’s house * The first production car, the 1925 2½ litre used a Meadows straight six, overhead-valve engine and four-speed gearbox and cost from £595. As demand grew, much of the construction work went to Barnes, London but final assembly and test remained at Fairmile * Sporting success for Invicta often came via Violette Cordery – Noel Macklin’s sister-in-law. In 1927 she drove an Invicta around the world, accompanied by a nurse, a mechanic, and an RAC observer, covering 10,266 miles in five months at 24.6 mph, crossing Europe, Africa, India, Australia, the United States and Canada * Car production seems to have finished in 1935. Noel Macklin went on to found Railton, who used the Cobham buildings to make their cars after Invicta moved to Chelsea in 1933. The name was revived in 1946 by an organisation calling themselves Invicta Cars of Virginia Water Surrey, but the new company only survived until it was purchased in 1950 * Know more?

________________________ Japan Railways | Tokyo, Japan | c. 1987 * * East Japan Railway Company (東日本旅客鉄道株式会社a) – officially abbreviated ‘JR East’ – is a major passenger railway company in Japan and is the largest of the seven Japan Railways Group companies * * Headquartered in Yoyogi, Shibuya, Tokyo, the company was formed after the government-owned ‘Japanese National Railways’ (JNR) came under charges of serious management inefficiencies, profit losses, and fraud. By the early 1980s, passenger and freight business had declined, and fare increases had failed to keep up with higher labor costs that operated Japan’s national railway network from 1949 to 1987 * * What remained of the debt-ridden JNR after the 1987 breakup was named the ‘Japanese National Railways Settlement Corporation’, meant to dispose of assets and debts not absorbed by the seven successor companies. The new companies turned things around by introducing competition, reducing staffing, and making reform efforts, leading to a positive public reception * * Japan has the world’s busiest rail network with a daily ridership of 18.5 million, and 40 percent of the total passenger travel in the country is on railway transport – compared to 90 percent on road transport in the United States * * Today East Japan Railways operates the world’s busiest train system, with 6.6 million passengers riding it every day – the railroad is so confident that you will arrive at your destination on time that sometimes passengers are given refunds if trains are late * Know more?

________________________ Horniman Museum & Gardens | London, England | c. 1901 * * The Horniman Museum & Gardens is a museum in Forest Hill, London, England. Commissioned in 1898, it opened in 1901 and was designed by Charles Harrison Townsend in the Arts and Crafts style. It has displays of anthropology, natural history and musical instruments, and is known for its large collection of taxidermied animals * * Founded in 1901 by Frederick John Horniman, Frederick had inherited his father’s Horniman’s Tea business, which by 1891 had become the world’s biggest tea trading business * * Profits from the business allowed him to indulge his lifelong passion for collecting, and which after travelling extensively had some 30,000 items in his various collections, covering natural history, cultural artefacts and musical instruments * * The museum is set in 16 acres (65,000 m2) of gardens, which include the following features: A Grade II listed conservatory from 1894 which was moved from Horniman’s family house in Croydon to the present site in the 1980s, a bandstand from 1912, an enclosure for small animals, a Butterfly House and a sound garden with large musical instruments to be played * * The Horniman specializes in anthropology, natural history and musical instruments and has a collection of 350,000 objects. The ethnography and music collections have Designated status, and one of its most famous exhibits is the large collection of taxidermy animals * * Know more?

________________________ St. Augustinus | Berlin, Germany | c. 1928 * St. Augustinus (or St. Augustine) is a Catholic Church in Berlin, Germany. Led by architects Josef Bachem and Heinrich Horvatin, it was designed in the late-Expressionist style in 1928 * The history of St. Augustine is closely intertwined with the nearby Catholic parish of St. Afra. Founded in 1903, the parish of St. Afra grew so rapidly that the new community of St Augustine had emerged and became an independent parish 15 years later * The two parishes continued to share the Church of St. Afra which created tensions due to limited space. St. Augustine’s first pastor Carl Pelz decided to build his own church and in 1925, he organized an architectural competition in which Bachem’s designed was selecte​d * Bachem and Horvatin’s design involved clear forms and spare ornamentation, elements associated with Late Expressionism. It hardly matched the perception of a church at the time – which were commonly designed in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque styles – the Archbishop even refused to inaugurate the church, leaving the Bishop to complete the consecration * The church’s interior contains a breathtaking hall with domed vaults and niches with side altars and confessionals in bevelled corners. Columned choir space on either side of the altar is anchored by an organ beneath a large round arch. A tower with four bronze church bells is situated on the south side of the building * The construction of the Berlin Wall would ultimately physically separate St. Augustine and St. Afra. Over the next two decades, St. Augustine would struggle to retain parishioners and was eventually dissolved. Today, the church belongs to the parish of the Holy Family, but the name St. Augustine is still emblazoned on the building * Know more?

________________________ Jantar Mantar | Jaipur, India | c. 1734 * The Jantar Mantar monument in Jaipur, Rajasthan is a collection of nineteen architectural astronomical instruments built by the Rajput king Sawai Jai Singh II, and completed in 1734. It features the world’s largest stone sundial, and is a UNESCO World Heritage * Jai Singh noticed that the zij – an Islamic astronomical book that tabulates parameters used for calculations of the positions of the Sun, Moon, stars, and planets – used in his time, especially the predictions of the position of celestial objects did not match the positions calculated on the table * In order to create a more accurate Zij, and potentially to strengthen his political position in regions where he had gained authority, he constructed five new observatories in different cities across northern india between 1724 – 1730. The astronomical tables he created – the Zij-i Muhammad Shahi – was continuously used in India for a century although the table had little significance outside of the country * The monument in Jaipur features instruments operating in each of the three main classical celestial coordinate systems: the horizon-zenith local system, the equatorial system, and the ecliptic system. The Kapala Yantraprakara is one that works in two systems and allows transformation of the coordinates directly from one system to the other * The name “Jantar Mantar” is more than 200 years old. The word Jantra is derived from yantra, or “instrument”, while the suffix Mantar is derived from mantrana meaning “consult” or “calculate”, which translates to “calculation instrument” * ?: @joanazokos ✍: @wikipedia + @jantar_mantar_org * #AccidentallyWesAnderson #WesAnderson #VscoArchitecture #Vsco #TravelMore #AccidentalWesAnderson #JantarMantar #Jaipur #India #Rajasthan #SawaiJaiSinghII #UNESCO

________________________ Neues Off Cinema | Berlin, Germany | c. 1926 * The ‘Neues Off’ (New Off) Cinema is a classic district cinema in the southern Berlin district of Neukölln * Originally a ballroom, the site was converted to a cinema in 1926 named ‘Rixdorfer Lichtspiele’. Moving into the 1960s and 1970s, it operated as a red-light cinema before being rescued in 1979 by the founders of the Yorck Cinema and was converted into an arthouse cinema * The 193 cushioned seat screening room is all on one level and a green curtain duly opens and closes before and after the screening of the film. The cinema’s foyer is flush with an original 50’s Sarotti counter, combined with bright red swinging doors and a black and white bistro floor * In the late 1990s, the theater underwent a comprehensive renovation to restore it to its former beauty, and it was renamed the Neue Off in 1998. Today it holds special programs and international film festivals such as the Turkish Film Week, the Jewish Film Festival, and the “Berlinale goes Kiez”. The Neues Off recently celebrated its 30th birthday * ?: @yorck.kinogruppe ✍: @cinematreasures + @wikipedia + @yorck.kinogruppe * #AccidentallyWesAnderson #WesAnderson #VscoArchitecture #Vsco #TravelMore #AccidentalWesAnderson #NeuesOFF #Berlin #Germany

________________________ KR200 | Dorking, United Kingdom | c. 1958 * The Messerschmitt KR200, or ​Kabinenroller​ (Cabin Scooter) is a three-wheeled bubble car. Designed by aircraft engineer Fritz Fend, the KR200 was produced in the factory of the German aircraft manufacturer Messerschmitt from 1955 to 1964 * At the time, Messerschmitt was temporarily suspended from manufacturing aircraft, so the company turned to making other products. In 1952, Fend approached Messerschmitt with the idea of manufacturing small motor vehicles * The KR175 was Fend’s first vehicle to enter production at Messerschmitt’s Regensburg factory. The KR200 soon replaced the KR175 in 1955. While using the same basic frame as the KR175, changes to the bodywork and an improved canopy design classified the KR200 as an almost total redesign * With almost 12,000 built during its first year, the KR200 was considered an instant success. Its maximum speed clocked in at 56 mph and reflected the vehicle’s light weight and low aerodynamic drag. The car had a full set of pedals, clutch, brake, and accelerator; and apart from the dual-mode ignition, its steering wheel resembled that of an aircraft * After West Germany joined NATO, Messerschmitt was allowed to manufacture aircraft again and lost interest in Fend’s microcars. Messerschmitt sold the Regensburg works to Fend who formed Fahrzeug- und Maschinenbau GmbH Regensburg (FMR) to continue production of the KR200 and other vehicles * Within a decade, KR200 sales began to dwindle and production was heavily reduced, eventually ceasing in 1964. Although Germany’s economy boomed, it diminished the demand for basic economical transport.​ ​In total, 30,286 KR200s were built * Know more?

________________________ Schloss Sanssouci | Potsdam, Germany | c. 1745 * Sanssouci was the summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, in Potsdam, Germany, near Berlin. It is often counted among the German rivals of Versailles. While Sanssouci is in the more intimate Rococo style and far smaller than its French Baroque counterpart, it too is notable for the numerous temples and follies in the park * The palace was designed/built by Georg Wenzeslaus von Knobelsdorff between 1745 and 1747 to fulfill King Frederick’s need for a private residence where he could relax away from the pomp and ceremony of the Berlin court. The palace’s name emphasizes this; it is a French phrase (sans souci), which translates as “without concerns”, symbolizing that the palace was a place for relaxation rather than a seat of power * Sanssouci is little more than a large, single-story villa containing just ten principal rooms. The influence of King Frederick’s personal taste in the design and decoration of the palace was so great that its style is characterized as “Frederician Rococo”, and his feelings for the palace were so strong that he conceived it as “a place that would die with him” * During the 19th century, the palace became a residence of Frederick William IV. He employed the architect Ludwig Persius to restore and enlarge the palace. The town of Potsdam, with its palaces, was a favorite place of residence for the German imperial family until the fall of the Hohenzollern dynasty in 1918 * After World War II, the palace became a tourist attraction in East Germany. Following German reunification in 1990, Frederick’s body was returned to the palace and buried in a new tomb overlooking the gardens he had created. Sanssouci and its extensive gardens became a World Heritage Site in 1990 under the protection of UNESCO * Know more?

________________________ Great Camp Sagamore | Raquette Lake, New York | c. 1897 * Great Camp Sagamore was constructed by William West Durant on Sagamore Lake between 1895-1897. Prior to Sagamore, Durant had constructed Camp Pine Knot on nearby Raquette Lake and Camp Uncas (once owned by J. P. Morgan) on Lake Mohegan – all three camps are still in use today * The camp is arranged in two complexes a half-mile apart, the Upper, or worker’s complex, and the Lower, or guest complex. It served as a sylvan setting in which the richest families in America could relax, party, and get a feeling of returning to nature. All of this, however, was accomplished without leaving the comforts of civilization behind. * In 1901 Durant was forced to sell Sagamore because a lawsuit by his sister over his mismanagement of their mother’s estate had pushed him to the edge of bankruptcy. It was purchased by Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt, who expanded and improved the property to include many amenities including a hydroelectric plant and an outdoor bowling alley with an ingenious system for retrieving the balls * Vanderbilt died in 1915, a victim of the Lusitania sinking, leaving Sagamore to his widow Margaret Emerson, an avid sportswoman who continued to occupy the camp seasonally for many years. She then transferred the property to Syracuse University, which operated a conference center at the site until the State of New York offered to buy it * The camp has continued to function as an education institution dedicated to the preservation of the National Historic Landmark. A portion of Sagamore was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, and designated as a National Historic Landmark in May 2000. The historic camp is now run by Sagamore Institute of the Adirondacks, Inc. and is open to the public * ?: @susan_fleck ✍: @wikipedia * #AccidentallyWesAnderson #WesAnderson #VscoArchitecture #Vsco #AccidentalWesAnderson #Travelmore #RaquetteLake #NewYorkState #UpstateNewYork #Adirondacks #GreatCampSagamore #SagamoreLake
