Mikulov is a town in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic. It is located directly on the border with Lower Austria. Mikulov is located at the edge of a hilly area and the three Nové Mlýny reservoirs. Pálava Landscape Protected Area begins in Mikulov, and so does the Moravian Karst.
Mikulov Castle is situated in the town of Mikulov in South Moravia, Czech Republic. The castle stands on a place of historic Slavonic settlement, where since the end of the 13th century the original stone castle was erected. The present castle is the result of a reconstruction in 1719-1730 under the princes of Dietrichstein. The end of World War II meant a complete disaster for the castle, as German troops withdrawing from the town set fire to it. After an extensive reconstruction in the 1950s, the castle became the seat of the Regional Museum in Mikulov, housing art and historical collections, including artifacts relating to the history of local wine production. The Renaissance wine barrel, dating from 1643 and one of the largest wine barrels in Central Europe, is on display.

Masterful composition with the historic castle. It definitely looks grand after the reconstruction that you mention in your note. As always, the colours, clarity and details are superb. Lovely framing with the trees and the curved wall in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice evening.

The point of view shows the form of this impressive castle to great effect. I like also, the framing offered by the surrounding greenery, which contrasts very well with the pastel orange tones of the building. The light was not of the best, nevertheless, you have managed to produce a very successful image.

A good POV here, slightly from below to enhance the impression of this castle. The red roof attracts attention and the road curving around the tree promotes the composition.

Excellent composition with the curve of the road to present this nice view of the beautiful castle. Very good natural framing with the tree in the FG which contrasts well with the castle wall so well. Well managed light and colours. Good one, thanks for sharing.

The first thought which came when I saw this photo was that the windows looked like the eyes of the castle. The colors are soft and pleasing to the eyes.

bardzo ciekawy kadr, ktory zyskuje sporo dzieki temu niskiemu murkowi okalajacemu palac. Podkresla on mocno droge biegnaca w strone budynku.Sporo zieleni ktora wnosi nie tylko kolor ale takze urozmaica calosc.
Interesujaca architektura i atrakcyjnie przedstawiona.

This is a beautiful and very impressive castle, and you have composed this well by framing it with the trees and including the curving road. The colours are great: mild but still very strong and vigorous.

Beautiful architecture picture.
I like the soft pink tones of the facade very much. On days with nicer weather, the colours of the facade and the roof will certainly contrast well with a less dull sky.
The castle is taken from a good angle and the curve of the road around the tree makes an attractive foreground.
Best regards, Paul

Beau point de vue sur cet imposant château. Les arbres cadrent bien l'image. Belles couleurs et bonne netteté de l'image. Bien fait.

who can resist this right!
who wouldn't want to live in a Castle like this one.
clearly its been renovated, but who cares, it looks fantastic - perhaps it looked almost as good as this when built many years ago.
the white sky actually helps to bring out the castle even more. nice shot

I liked this lower angle and the contrast between the colors against the sky. interesting details and a soft light that let us to see each corner of the architecture shown here.

piekny ten palac i zamek w jednym. Bdb ujecie z fajnego POV. Ladne wiosenne kolory a szczegolnie zielen. Warto odwiedzic to miejsce.

uroczy zamek i jak juz wspominalem wczesniej, nie slyszalem o tym miejscu chyba zanim nie zobaczylem zdjec w Twojej galerii. Bardzo atrakcyjna pocztowkowa prezentacja -dokladnie tak jak lubie. Ladnie wykorzystales ten murek zeby obramowac ramke od dolu.
