There are more than 600 castles in Wales, more per square mile than anywhere in the world. Some have been lived in continuously for a thousand years, while others are romantic ruins. Many are native Welsh castles, built by Welsh royal dynasties, often in very beautiful places. The biggest were built by Normans following their invasion in 1066. These are 12 of the best native and Norman examples.

In 1901 this was already a rarity, but...

The camera still remembers the giants who walked the Earth not so long ago.
Isn’t this where the title His Highness comes from? Height!


На 1901 год это уже была большая редкость, но...

Камера еще помнит гигантов , которые не так давно ходили по Земле.

The mystery of a bathhouse heated by one candle. Esfahan. Iran

The bathhouse was built by a Baha'i sheikh in the 16th and 17th centuries. According to legend, it was heated with just one candle. But how is this possible?

Now scientists are trying in every possible way to explain this, and one of the theories is the combustion of gases from the sewer under the bathhouse.

But there is another theory - atomic energy. Perhaps something emitted a glow and, from afar, looked like a candle. Then everything is logical, because it was forbidden to enter the room with this candle (radiation?) Hence the word radius, which first appeared in the same 16th century and meant a safe distance to the radioactive substance (to the “candle” in that room). It comes from the word Radius (radiance, shine, radiation, ray)


Тайна бани, обогреваемой одной свечой. Исфахан. Иран

Баня была построена шейхом Бахаи в 16-17 веке. По легенде, она отапливалась всего одной свечей. Но как это возможно?

Сейчас учёные пытаются всячески объяснить это и одна из теорий - сгорание газов из канализации под баней.

Но есть другая теория - атомная энергия. Возможно, что-то издавало свечение и, издалека, было похоже на свечу. Тогда все логично, ведь в комнату с этой свечей было запрещено входить (радиация?) Отсюда и слово радиус, которое впервые появилось в том же 16 веке и означало безопасное расстояние до радиоактивного вещества(до "свечи" в той комнате). Произошло оно от слова Radius (сияние, блеск, излучение, луч)
