  • Once completely destroyed and leveled by one of the most powerful earthquakes ever registered (to this day), back in 1755, downtown Lisbon was rebuilt on top of hundreds and hundreds of wooden stakes to provide structural support to the buildings. The more you know... 😉
And on top of that hill sits the ancient St. George castle, still overlooking and watching over the city after a thousand years.

Such a beauty though, isn't it? 👌

  • 🛡DescriptionIvar the Boneless, also known as Ivar Ragnarsson, was a Viking leader and a commander who invaded what is now England. According to The Tale of Ragnar Lodbrok, he was the son of Ragnar Loðbrok and Aslaug. His brothers included Björn Ironside, Halfdan Ragnarsson, Hvitserk, Sigurd Snake-in-the-Eye and Ubba.🛡
〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
⚜️ Why do they call him Ivar the Boneless?⚜️
🔸 Ivar the boneless, was called boneless because his body lacked bones as the result of a curse. Aslaug , Ivar's mother and Ragnar's wife had warned Ragnar not to consummate their marriage before 3 nights, but he ignored his warnings and hence Ivar was cursed.🔸
〰️〰️〰️〰️〰️
⚜️ How did the real Ivar the Boneless die?⚜️
🔸 Ivar the Boneless' Death. According to the Annals of Ulster, Ivar died of a sudden disease in 873. In the 19th century, it was suggested that Ivar might have died from brittle bone disease, also known as osteogenesis imperfecta, and this might have been the reason why he was called “boneless”.🔸

This is Nuremberg, a half-timbered Bavarian dreamtown with candycane views and its own hilltop castle. Stupid cute, right? But now, let me taint this Kodak moment w/ some reaaaal heavy pieces of dark history for you... because it’s important for context.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1️⃣ If this photo had been taken 75 years ago, you’d be looking at rubble. In March 1944, during WWII, 90% of the Nuremberg Old Town was wiped out in a single hour by bombs. They’ve since rebuilt it to mimic its former look, hence why it’s so cutesy and snowglobey today
2️⃣ Nuremberg was Hitler’s favourite city, he called it “the most German of German cities”, which is why he held some of the biggest Nazi rallies here. If you’ve seen any rally footage in like, WWII documentaries, odds are you’ve seen Nuremberg
3️⃣ Post WWII, it was here that they held the Nuremberg trials, where important Nazi officials were prosecuted. It was the first ever prosecution for “crimes against humanity”, and the 1st time the word genocide was used in court
4️⃣ In spite of this dark past though, Nuremberg is thriving today, with lots of museums, memorials and a documentation center for visitors to learn more about its history, which is why I encourage you to visit if you ever get the chance. (They also have good gingerbread)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I always try to read up on local history wherever I am. Sure, most of the time I forget it within minutes (I am a human goldfish), but in some places like Nuremberg, it’s important to learn, and even more important to share. Who else does Wikipedia binges before/after they visit a place? 🙋🏻‍♀️
