Prskalo is a unique waterfall situated in the Kucaj mountains of eastern Serbia. It is like a sculpture where someone has carved a channel to transport water to the very tip of it. The original geocache was put into a hole in the side of the waterfall, but due to the instability of the rocky structure it has probably fallen deeper and is not accessible. We have recently replaced the container, but this time we’ve put it some 20-30 metres further to the southeast, under a rock close to the trail leading to the top of the waterfall. You can access the plateau next to the waterfall by 4×4 vehicle, or the road in the valley below by any kind of vehicle. We recommend visiting the Kucaj mountains as the biggest continuous portion of uninhabited wilderness in Serbia, featuring very dynamic and picturesque scenery.
The Gravensteen is a castle in Ghent originating from the Middle Ages. The name means “castle of the count” in Dutch.The present castle was built in 1180 by count Philip of Alsace and was modeled after the crusaders castles that Philip of Alsace encountered while he participated in the second crusade. Before its construction, there stood a wooden castle on the same location, presumably built in the ninth century. The castle served as the seat of the Counts of Flanders until they abandoned it in the 14th century. The castle was then used as a courthouse, a prison and eventually decayed. Houses were built against the walls and even on the courtyard and the stones of the walls were used to erect other buildings. At one time it even served as a factory. At the end of the 19th century, the castle was scheduled to be demolished.
New Brunswick is one of Canada’s three Maritime provinces and is the only province in the Canadian federation that is constitutionally bilingual. Fredericton is the capital and Saint John is the most populous city. Greater Moncton (Moncton, Dieppe, Riverview) forms the province’s largest census metropolitan area. In the 2011 nation wide census, Statistics Canada estimated the provincial population to have been 751,171. The majority of the population is English-speaking, but there is also a large Francophone minority, chiefly of Acadian origin.The province is named for the city of Brunswick (Braunschweig in German) located in modern day Lower Saxony in northern Germany (and also the former duchy of the same name). Brunswick is the ancestral home of the Hanoverian King George III of the United Kingdom.
The Fort of São João do Arade, sometimes referred to as the Castle of Arade, is a medieval fortification situated in the civil parish of Ferragudo in the Portuguese Algarve municipality of Lagoa.The first fortification on the site consisted of a watch tower erected in the reign of King John II of Portugal. Later, following the settlement of Ferragudo (around 1520), it is believed that the castle was encircled by a defensive wall (built on the rudimentary walls of the older walls): giving rise to its original name Castle of Arade.
The origins of the Fort of Arade (or Ferragudo, as it is also known) date back to the Philippine Dynasty, and the need by the Habsburg rulers to defend the coast of the peninsula from attacks by pirates and privateers in service to the Crowns of northern Europe. Yet, even at the beginning decades of the 17th century, no fortress was constructed owing to the indecision on whether to locate the fortification on the left or right margin (location of Vila Nova de Portimão).
Engineer Alexandre Massai defended a new construction in Portimão, while the left margin proposal (in Ferragudo) was defended by the municipality of Silves. According to a report by Alexandre Massai, the battlements already existed in 1621, since he refers to “um sítio cercado chamado Ferragudo” (“a walled site called Ferragudo”).
