  2. Google ‘sobieski vienna’ and read about one of the western world’s most important battles in the last 1,000 years. Even that rag Time magazine wrote that had not Sobieski not won at Vienna the Koran might have been expounded today at Cambridge. It looks like it will anyway.

  3. When Ukraine is more financially stable i wish they would restore this. I plan on visiting neighboring Belarus and there are a few similar castles that i want to see.
