Evaporite karst and caves of Emilia Romagna Region (T)

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Polska - 15-Jul-22

Evaporite karst and caves of Emilia Romagna Region (T)

Site visited just recently (June, 2022), tentative site, scheduled for inscription in 2023. Since Astraftis described one component - Upper Secchia Valley - I will try to focus on two other areas located close to Bologna - Messinian Gypsum of Bologna and Messinian Gypsum of Zola Predosa. It is always a kind of guessing game for a tentative site, which part will be inscribed (if any) but anyway if in Bologna it may be a nice rest from endless Bolonia’s porticoes

Parco Regionale Gessi Bolognesi e Calanchi dell’Abbadessa (Messinian Gypsum of Bologna), located south – east of Bologna is a regional park. Easy accessible with a car, but I guess there is also a public transport available. While preparing for the trip I studied the maps and found that Farneto Cave may be open to the public. Hence I started exploring the area from parking near the cave (google coordinates 44.43253927452703, 11

Le Monastère de Neamt (T)

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Polska - 11-May-22

Le Monastère de Neamt (T)

Site visited in July, 2021 during extended Balkan trip. One of the oldest monasteries in Romania. Located in northern part of the country in historical region of Moldovia (do not confuse it with current state of Moldova).

Neamt Monastery (in Romanian Mănăstirea Neamţ) was built in XIV century during the reign of Petru Musat (first stone church was built) but its current shape received in XV century by Stephen III of Moldavia (better known as Stephen the Great, rom. Ştefan cel Mare – you will find streets named after him in every Romanian town).

Kerman Historical-Cultural Structure (T)

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Polska - 09-Mar-22

Kerman Historical-Cultural Structure (T)

Site visited in May, 2017. Located in south-eastern part of Iran is a good base for exploring Lut Desert and nice place for admiring its own monuments. Kerman as a town (or at least its historical structure) is to certain extend similar to Yazd (general layout of mosques) or Isfahan (covered bazaars).

It was established in the 3rd century during Sassanid rule. Later in the 7th century it was captured by Muslims (Abbasid Caliphate). Taking advantage of the location at the intersection of trade routes the city the city started to produce cashmere wool shawls and other textiles. Kerman was visited by Marco Polo (XIII century) during his trip to China.

Calakmul

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Polska - 16-Dec-21

Calakmul

Visited just recently (November, 2021). Since the site was carefully decribed by other travellers I will focus on transportation warning so you may avoid problems while trying to get there without your own car.

Arrived in the afternoon (21.11.2021) at Xpujil and immediately started to organize a transport for the next day to Calakmul ruins. As there are no public transport directly to the archeological site you have to arrange something on your own. There are several options. The easiest seem to be tour agencies offering full day package (transport, food, guide) for 1500 (or more) peso per person. Taxis goes there for similar amount of money (or if you negotiate hard for a bit less) – this include 3 hours waiting time on the place. This option is paid by trip so if there are 3 -4 persons it might be the best solution

Rundāle Palace Ensemble with a Garden and Forest Park (T)

Jarek Pokrzywnicki Polska - 07-Dec-21

Rundāle Palace Ensemble with a Garden and Forest Park (T)

Site visited in August, 2021. Rundāle Palace Ensemble is probably the best example of baroque style residence in whole Latvia (together with the palace in Jelgava). Maybe it cannot be compared to palaces of Versailles, Schonbrunn or residences around St Petersburg but other entities that are already on the list, like Worlitz, Wurzburg, Kromeriz or Drottningholm are for me of the same quality.

Palace in Rundale (or Pilsrundale as current name of the village – Pils in Latvian means castle) is a residence of Kurland Duke - Ernst Johann von Biron, built on a place of Livonian Castle. He started to construct his palace in 1735 (simultaneously with the main seat in Jelgava / Mitawa) according to the project of Italian architect, Bartolomeo Rastrelli. In the meantime Ernst Johann became one of the most powerful person in Russian Empire (as a favorite of Empress Anna Iwanowna). It lasted only to to November, 1740, when palace revolution in St. Petersburg brought an end to Biron’s reign and duke was arrested, exiled and the building was stopped without finishing interiors
