Perperikon, Bulgaria, Eastern Europe and Russia

  From an Elf Castle to a Medieval Tower

This site has been used by number of cultures, if not number of civilisations...The lowest layer is a typical for the region Elf Castle style polygonal megalithic work, heavily eroded, barely distinguishable, but still distinguishable. Then we see rectangular spaces like those of Norsun Tepe and the Arkaim's "Country of the Town" (Strana Gorodov). On the top a megalithic polygonal stone work typical for the period of antiquity. And then a medieval tower and fountain with pagan feel to it... This is the best example of a site very rich in history.
