Borough, Bourg or in other words and languages known as Borgo, Burgz, Burg, etc. is a fortified Medieval architectural complex with special characteristics. Bourg is usually mistaken with castles.
Bourg Medved known also as Medvedgrad is the perfect Bourg with all architectural characteristics one should have.
This Medieval fortified building complex is made for living and defense. Situated on the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain, overwatches Croatian capital city, Zagreb. On demand of Catholic priests, it was built between 1249 – 1254. The primal function is to protect the city ( mostly themselves).
During the time Medved owners and inhabitants were all kinds of notable figures from the Catholic Church as well as Hungarian and Croatian nobility.
The last owners of the Bourg were Gregoryanetz family in the 16th century. An earthquake heavily damaged the Bourg Medved after that.
There are many legends and stories about Medved’s inhabitants. Certainly the most intriguing are the stories about Black Queen; Barbara Celjska – extremely beautiful, evil and promiscuous
Sve su to nazivi za modni klasik koji sa malim izmjena postoji skoro dva stoljeća. Za modu, koja se mijenja nekoliko puta u godini, to je iznimno dug vijek. Zbog toga taj kaput svevremenog dizajna ubrajamo u klasike modne industrije.
Izvornim dizajnom smatra se takozvani “poljski kaput”. Od imena belgijskog grada Duffel koji se nalazi u provinciji Antwerpena potječe jedan od naziva za taj kaput. U tom belgijskom gradiću u kojem se proizvodilo dosta vune proizvodila se i tkanina od koje se prvotno izrađivao kaput. Bila je to gruba vunena tkanina, u prirodnoj ( bežastoj) boji vune. Velika izdržljivost na habanje učinilo ju je idealnom za kapute tj. vanjsku odjeću.
Kao i brojni drugi ogrtači, Duffel je preko vojske ušao u mušku garderobu. Nakon Poljske najprije su ga počeli koristiti u britanskoj mornarici krajem 19og stoljeća. Kapuljača i debelo vuneno sukno odlično su štitili od vjetra i ostalih vremenskih uvjeta na moru.
There are some graffiti art festivals going on and finalizing these days. You can check “Grafiti na gradele” (Croatia). After visiting one, found my favorite “piece of graffiti art” standing in my room. It was already prepared (not consciously) as a part of style combination for next shooting. Finally, at the end of the day, opened some news pages and saw it. Banksys’ new exhibition happening in London – absolutely stranded by Graffiti today…
Last year I traveled to Prague and found quite interesting sculptured art made by David Cerny. This year I took the trip to Macedonian capital city. Skopje is known by thousands of sculptures and monumental architecture.
Let’s check what sculptured and sacral architecture art I met on my travel to Zagreb – Osijek – Skopje -Belgrade – Linz – Vienna.
