The "Thing" Project
Yes it really does exist -only in the EU! (And bang goes another 1million Euros of our money)
Click on "More" under "Synopsis" within this link to see .....more.
http://www.northernperiphery.eu/en/projects/show/&tid=72

So there might be hope for the Isle of Man's "Tynwald" in a future UK T List as per my suggestion under that thread ("Tyn" = "Thing"). They don't however seem to be part of this project - but then they are neither a full nor an associate member of the EU either! But that hasn't stopped Norway from participating.

I don't see anything on the website saying it's an EU funded project. I think the domain is .eu only since it is an international European project. In this project not only Norway, but also Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland are not part of the EU.

As I understand it "The Northern Periphery Program" which is funding/running the "Thing Project" is an EU initiated/funded body. The EU flag is very evident on the Program's Website. And I quote from that site "The Northern Periphery Programme 2007-2013 (NPP) is part of the European Commission's Territorial Cooperation Objective".

It is perfectly true of course that Iceland as well as Norway is involved in both the Program and the Project despite not being an EU member - the EU has never been shy of extending its tentacles wherever it can! I presume that Greenland and Faroe Island's relationship to EU is similar to that of the Isle of Man i.e a self governing dependent territory of a full member? But the Isle of Man seems to have "escaped" both the Program and the Project - perhaps it is too close to Liverpool etc etc to be part of the "Northern Periphery" (not all of Scotland, Ireland, Sweden or Finland seem to be included either) - though more likely it is too busy making money!

Greenland actually left the EU in the 80s... although apparently not completely:

2010 article, in the middle of the long, but interesting (depressing) article it mentions Unesco sent a team just this last spring to examine the site.

I came across this today
"....it has been decided on the initiation of common listing the Peles Assembly, including Peles and Pelisor castles - in Prahova County - southern Romania, and three royal castles, namely Herrenchiemsee, Linderhof and Neuschwanstein of southern Germany, as the UNESCO World Heritage" (See - http://www.actmedia.eu/2010/10/25/top+story/peles+assembly+to+be+on+unesco+world+heri tage+list,+together+with+tree+german+royal+castles+/30216 )

Are there any architectural experts who could comment on whether there is likely to be a plausible case for linking these sites together in a single nomination, as seems to be envisaged by the above comment?

The 3 German sites were all constructed by "Mad King Ludwig" in the second half of the 19th century in varying styles encompassing Romanesque, Neo-Gothic, Neo-Baroque and revived Rococo
The 2 Romanian sites were built (by a totally different King!) a bit later and adopted "Neo Renaissance" and even "Art Nouveau" styles.

I guess they all represent revivalist styles as adopted by central European monarchs in the 2nd half of the 19th century. Wiki notes, in its entry for Peles castle, - "By form and function, Peleş is truly a palace but affectionately and consistently called a castle instead, by all. Its architectural style is a Neo Renaissance of romantic inspiration that can find a correspondent in 19th century ideals with the monumental Gothic Revival of Schloss Neuschwanstein in Bavaria ironically called a castle as well." So it certainly sees a "correspondence" across those 2 sites.

Neuschwanstein's absence even from Germany's T List could be regarded as a bit of surprise for such a famous and even iconic building. There are certainly already plenty of inscribed European palaces but perhaps there is a bit of a gap in the list for the later manifestations of these? One might think that Romania needs the German examples more than they need the Romanian!
