Piața Ovidiu took a step back 100 years to when Romania defeated the Germans to take back Constanta in World War I 17 November 2018 . . . #worldwar1 #warreenactment #europehistory #history #reenactment #troops #soldiers #romania #constanta #city #weloveromania #weloveconstanta #ig_romania #igromania
. •Cecrops was the founder of city and he named it - Cecropia. However, the gods of Olympus saw this lovely piece of land and wanted to name it after them and become its patron. •Zeus decided that each of them would make a gift to the city and king Cecrops would decide which gift was the best and therefore which god would be the patron of the city. •Poseidon was the first to present his gift. He struck a rock with his trident and caused a spring of water to gush forth from the ground. This signified that he was assuring the citizens with water and therefore they wouldn’t face any time of drought. However, the people were not exactly enchanted with his gift because the water from the spring tasted salty, just like the waters of the sea over which Poseidon ruled. •Next there was the turn of goddess Athena. She planted a seed in the ground, which grew up to become a lovely olive tree. The citizens liked this gift better because it would give them food, oil and firewood. •This is how the goddess Athena got the everlasting honor of naming the city after her. Indeed, the residents of Athens built numerous glorious temples dedicated to her - one of them is •This Temple• The Parthenon! . . . . . . . #athens #athensgreece #parthenon #acropolis #visitgreece #mythology #history #tlpicks #_traveleurope #travelstribe #travelphotographyguide #speachlessplaces #travellingtroughtheworld #travelmetravelworld #topeuropephoto #justgoshoot #travel_drops #destinationseurope #europe #europehistory #iphonephoto #graceontravel #be_on_natura #creativephotography #europephotography #greece_travel #mediterranean_sea #castle #temple

#historythisday November 11, 1918. 100 years ago, the German representative meet with the French to signed an armistice at the forest of Compiègne, marking the end of World War 1, the Great War, or the War to End All War. ------------------------------------------------- The Armistice of 11 November 1918 was the armistice that ended fighting on land, sea and air in World War I between the Allies and their opponent, Germany. Previous armistices had eliminated Bulgaria, the Ottoman Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire from the war. Also known as the Armistice of Compiègne from the place where it was signed, it came into force at 11 a.m. Paris time on 11 November 1918 ("the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month") and marked a victory for the Allies and a complete defeat for Germany, although not formally a surrender. The actual terms, largely written by the Allied Supreme Commander, Marshal Ferdinand Foch, included the cessation of hostilities, the withdrawal of German forces to behind the Rhine, Allied occupation of the Rhineland and bridgeheads further east, the preservation of infrastructure, the surrender of aircraft, warships, and military materiel, the release of Allied prisoners of war and interned civilians, eventual reparations, no release of German prisoners and no relaxation of the naval blockade of Germany. The German delegation was presented by Matthias Erzberger, and the French delegation was represented by Ferdinand Foch. Although the armistice ended the fighting, it needed to be prolonged three times until the Treaty of Versailles, which was signed on 28 June 1919, took effect on 10 January 1920. ------------------------------ Source: wikipedia.com #greatwar #ww1 #history #germanempire #worldwar #armistice #armisticeday #lestweforget #europehistory #frenchhistory #germanhistory
Constructed from 1887–1889 as the entrance to the 1889 World's Fair, it was initially criticized by some of France's leading artists and intellectuals for its design, but it has become a global cultural icon of France and one of the most recognisable structures in the world. The Eiffel Tower is the most-visited paid monument in the world; 6.91 million people ascended it in 2015. . The tower is 324 metres (1,063 ft) tall, about the same height as an 81-storey building, and the tallest structure in Paris. Its base is square, measuring 125 metres (410 ft) on each side. . During its construction, the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument to become the tallest man-made structure in the world, a title it held for 41 years until the Chrysler Building in New York City was finished in 1930. Due to the addition of a broadcasting aerial at the top of the tower in 1957, it is now taller than the Chrysler Building by 5.2 metres (17 ft). Excluding transmitters, the Eiffel Tower is the second tallest free-standing structure in France after the Millau Viaduct. . . . . #vscocam #europehistory #vscogood_ #travelphotography #backpackers #europe #france 🇫🇷 #eiffeltower #vscofilter #aroundtheworld #travelblogger #visiteurope #paris #engineeringwonders
Robert Capa (born Endre Friedmann; October 22, 1913 – May 25, 1954) was a Hungarian war photographer and photojournalist as well as the companion and professional partner of photographer Gerda Taro. He is considered by some to be the greatest combat and adventure photographer in history. Capa fled political repression in Hungary when he was a teenager, moving to Berlin, where he enrolled in college. He witnessed the rise of Hitler, which led him to move to Paris, where he met and began to work with Gerta Pohorylle. Together they worked under the alias Robert Capa and became photojournalists. Though she contributed to much of the early work, she quickly created her own alias 'Gerda Taro' and they began to publish their work separately. He subsequently covered five wars: the Spanish Civil War, the Second Sino-Japanese War, World War II across Europe, the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, and the First Indochina War, with his photos published in major magazines and newspapers. During his career he risked his life numerous times, most dramatically as the only civilian photographer landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day. He documented the course of World War II in London, North Africa, Italy, and the liberation of Paris. His friends and colleagues included Ernest Hemingway, Irwin Shaw, John Steinbeck and director John Huston. In 1947, for his work recording World War II in pictures, U.S. general Dwight D. Eisenhowerawarded Capa the Medal of Freedom. That same year, Capa co-founded Magnum Photos in Paris. The organization was the first cooperative agency for worldwide freelance photographers. Hungary has issued a stamp and a gold coin in his honor. . #robertcapa #dday #secondwar #worldwar2 #hungariawar #history #historychannel #natgeo #natgeohistory #nationalgeographic #omahabeach #greatman #photography #europe #europehistory #instahistory #instaday #greatness #picoftheday

Pabellón nacional del Reino de España (1700-1785) Con la llegada al trono de la casa Borbón se impuso como nuevo pabellón naval las armas reales españolas sobre paño blanco, siguiendo así el diseño de otras ramas borbónicas reinantes en Europa. 1)  En la primera imagen de esta publicación se reproduce el cuadro “La captura del navío Stanhope” de Ángel Cortellini Sánchez (1901-1912) Museo Naval de Madrid. @museo_naval En él se observa cómo la fragata española Valeur, capitaneada por Blas de Lezo, luce la bandera de popa de paño blanco con las armas reales simplificadas y collar de la Orden del Toisón de Oro. 2) Diseño de pabellón blanco de mediados del siglo XVIII. El escudo, próximo al mástil, aparece simplificado a cuatro cuarteles con las armas de la Corona castellana, escusón de la Casa de Borbón y corona real española. Ornamenta el escudo el collar de la Orden del Toisón de Oro y dos cintas, una encarnada (Toisón) y otra azul (Espíritu Santo). 3) Como curiosidad, en el cuadro de Cortellini la bandera británica aparece con la British Union Flag de después de 1801 (incorporación de la cruz de San Patricio, símbolo de Irlanda). La correcta hubiese sido la que se muestra en esta publicación que estuvo vigente durante todo el s. XVIII, centuria en la ocurrió el hecho que representa la obra. @royalmuseumsgreenwich #banderadeespaña #bandera #spanishnavy #spanishkingdom #spanishflag #unionjack #britishflag #ship #boat #navio #historia #historiadeeuropa #europehistory #madrid #museonaval #greenwichmuseum #royalmuseumgreenwich #borbon #casaborbon #bourbon #felipev #carlosiii #spain #ukhistory

Navío Príncipe de Asturias (La Habana, 1794-1814). Embarcación a la que perteneció la bandera de popa de la publicación anterior. Este navío de línea de 112 cañones sirvió a la Real Armada hasta 1814. El navío, bautizado en honor al futuro rey Carlos IV, combatió contra las fuerzas británicas en la conocida batalla de Trafaltar (1805). En esta ocasión, la enseña y el propio Príncipe de Asturias tuvo mejor fortuna que la de otros buques españoles, pero ése es un asunto que trataremos en próximas publicaciones. 1)  La primera imagen nos muestra un grabado del navío español diseñado por Agustín Berlinguero. (S. XIX). @museo_naval 2) En la segunda imagen vemos la barcaza fúnebre que trasladó el cuerpo del vice-almirante Horatio Nelson muerto en combate el 21de octubre de 1805 en Trafalgar.

Vila Nova de Milfontes is one of the older parishes in the municipality of Odemira (Portugal), it was founded in 1485 by King John II, the area was constituted to serve an economic and defensive role in the Alentejo, at the confluence of the Mira River, and benefitted from its strategic importance as a safe harbour. The first inhabitants were prisoners sentenced by minor crimes; 50 years after it was established the population of the parish was little more than ten families. . The village was frequently attacked by pirates, and destroyed completely in 1590, resulting in the construction of a fortress, around 1602: the Fort of São Clemente. . Nowadays this is a tourist-oriented town, with only a small population, annually becomes inflated during the summer and holiday seasons, tourists attracted by the white sand beaches, clear water and landscape. . . . . #portugal #costavicentina #alentejo #backpackers #travelblogger #travelphotography #beaches #vscocam #vscofilter #vscogood_ #europetravel #europe_perfection #europehistory
