    A wonderful front entrance…and I knew Ginnie would say that :) Harts, you never can go wrong with that :)

    We often think of the architecture, in that time period, being so dark and dismal…but those floor-to-ceiling windows kept things brighter than most of our homes today, I think. Now the heating is a different story :)

    Magnificent coat of arms – no one displays those or family crests on or in their homes anymore, do they?

    Then again, I wonder what the neighbors would think if I just suddenly displayed one off my balcony?

    (I don’t think think it would have the same effect from a third floor apartment, do you?;)

      On the day we visited it was so cold that the room guides were wearing coats and gloves!!

      It think would be fun if everyone displayed their coat of arms on their balconies :-)

      You have brought back memories of my third floor apartment (although we would say third floor flat). I had great views from the front room windows, sadly no balcony!

    So much exquisite architecture and history in your country. I’m hankering for another visit across the pond! :)
