Edinburgh Castle is an ancient stronghold
which dominates the sky-line of the city of Edinburgh
from its position atop Castle Rock.
It is Scotland 's
second most visited tourist attraction. Human habitation of the site
is dated back as far as the 9th century BC. As it stands today though, few of the castle's structures pre- date the Lang Siege of the 16th century,
with the notable exception of St Margaret 's Chapel, the oldest surviving building in Edinburgh,
which dates from the early 12th
century.As with all castles ,
Edinburgh's fortress has been a centre of military activity. As an
ancient fortress Edinburgh Castle is one of the few that still has a
military garrison, albeit for largely ceremonial and administrative
purposes. The New Barrack Block is now home to the official headquarters of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and 52
Infantry Brigade, as well as home to the regimental museum of the
Royal Scots
and Royal
Scots Dragoon Guards. The Governor of Edinburgh Castle is Major

Giidindus- Toompea

Toompea (from German Domberg – Cathedral Hill ) is a limestone hill with an area of about 7 hectares in the central part of Tallinn. It towers about 30-40 m above the surrounding areas. According to the legend it´s the tumulus mound over the grave of the national hero Kalev, erected stone by stone in his memory by his grieving wife Linda. It is the birthplace of Tallinn - a place where in 1229 the Knights of the Sword built a fortress instead of the wooden Estonian stronghold. Toompea Castle is also one of the most potent symbols of the reigning power. Today Toompea is the seat of the Government of Estonia as well as the Riigikogu, both of which are often simply colloquially referred to as Toompea. For centuries there was only one access to Toompea - Pikk Jalg - but there is also another way leading up to Toompea - Lühike Jalg, which was made in the 14th century. At present Pikk Jalg and Lühike Jalg are used only by pedestrians. Until

Tallinn

In the Middle ages, it was the place where the bishops and the nobility resided. Here the landed gentry built their beautiful town houses. Most of the remaining buildings were erected after the big fire on Toompea in 1684. Historically, the fortress on Toompea consisted of two parts : the small fortress (today's Toompea Castle) and the big fortress (The rest of Toompea). Pikk Hermann is the best-known corner tower among the three surviving ones of Toompea Castle. It is 46 metres high and serves as one of Estonia's landmarks. Tall Hermann was a traditional name given to the main towers of German castles. After the 50-year long Soviet occupation, the Estonian blue-black-white tricolour was once again hoisted on Pikk Hermann on 24 February 1989. The Cathedral of St. Mary the Virgin (Toomkirik or the Dome Church) was consecrated as a single- nave church with a rectangular chancel in 1240, and rebuilt into a Gothic basilica thereafter. The

Edward the Confessor also built Westminster Abbey. He ruled until his death in 1065, after which King Harold was crowned. Norman period( Medieval London) 1066 In 1066 in the Battle of Hastings the Normans were victorious and William was crowned King. William granted the citizens of London special privileges, but he also built a castle in the southeast corner of the city to keep them under control. This castle was expanded by later kings until it became the complex we now call the Tower of London. The Tower acted as royal residence, and it was not until later that it became famous as a prison. In 1176 the first stone London Bridge was built. This bridge was to remain the only one in London until 1739. Because the passage across this one bridge was narrow and clogged with
