Bolzano, Italy Featured Print

Bolzano, Italy

Bolzano, Italy - The Ca 'de Bezzi, the oldest Inn in Bolzano. This historic tavern is late medieval (15th century) in date and built by the Teutonic Order. The name is inferred from an ancient coin, Batzen (Bezzi) which corresponded to the price of a measure of wine. For centuries, the Ca 'de Bezzi was not only the Osteria of the Order of Teutonic Knights but in the nineteenth century it was the coterie of intellectuals, politicians and artists, from the Duke of Bavaria to the Austrian painter Albin Egger Lienz and the father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud. Date: circa 1920s

Kunigunde Legend at Chojnik Castle (Kynast) Featured Print

Kunigunde Legend at Chojnik Castle (Kynast)

A 'hold-to-light' card - showing an artists impression of Kynast Castle (Chojnik), a castle located above the village of Sobieszow, today part of Jelenia Gora in southwestern Poland. The ruins of Chojnik are tied to the myth of Kunigunde, the castle lord's daughter, who was desired by many knights. As she had no intention to enter into marriage, she promised to marry the bold man who would complete a circuit along the castle's walls on a horseback, knowing full well that on the steep slopes horse and rider must fall into the chasm. Many tried and perished until a proud nobleman came along, who appealed to Kunigunde. Although she declared to abandon the precondition and to marry him right away, the knight insisted on taking the risk and he succeeded. Instead of accepting her proposal he scolded her for her cruelty and departed. Kunigunde was so humiliated, she plunged into the abyss herself!
