Completed in 1308. The castle was in good shape up until the late 1700's when they somehow decided it should be demolished, foruntately they didnt manage to demolish all of it before giving up. Fucking retards destroying a 450 year old castle.

10 men and a ram would be enough because its a private residence, not intended for warfare/protecting some way into the country.

More like a palace but they are often called "castles" here so, the name "Skokloster slott" translates to "Skokloster castle"

Wait you guys, America can into castles! I've been to this one. It's called Fort Warren on George's Island off the coast of Boston MA. Military officials used to have private quarters and grounds there, and it also served as a defence outpost/ prison during the Civil War.

It was kind of in a shit state in the 18th century and they had to do a pretty big restoration on it. Around 1900 it got another "facelift" and they indeed made the roofs a bit higher. Other than that the castle looks about the same as it was in the middle ages

This """""castle"""""" was built late 19th century on the remains of an old 14th century castle. The architect was the same guy who designed the Rijksmuseum and Central Station in Amsterdam. He disneyfied the old design with neo-gothic and neo-renaissance elements. Still looks kind of cool though

It's actually legit, it wasn't built recently
It was a strong house during the Middle-Ages then was rebuilt and "upgraded" during the Renaissance and finally changed again to become more pleasant as castles became useless
It has changed a lot but it's not a recent thing

>>54043106

Only one of those looks like a castle, the rest just look like some rich cunts house

There is not enough Russian fortresses.

Walk around it and you got the whole garrison in your back that can cut your supplies. Its an establishment of a presence in the area, even if you ignore it, it still means there will be 500 enemy men in that area that you have to consider.

we don't have much castles younger than 2000 year ruins because we actually knew of siege warfare
but we do have forts
in fact every city used to be walled before the 19th century
