Neuschwanstein castle is a nineteenth-century romanesque revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of hohenschwangau near füssen in southwest bavaria, #germany. when it was built (1869-1886), the castle was not known as neuschwanstein. king ludwig ii wrote his friend richard wagner in may 1868: “i intend to rebuild the old castle ruins of hohenschwangau by the pöllat gorge (pöllatschlucht) in the genuine style of the old german knightly fortresses.” the castle was intended as a home for the king, until he died in 1886. it was open to the public shortly after his death. since then more than “61 million people” have visited neuschwanstein castle. more than “1.3 million people” visit annually, with as many as “6,000” per day in the summer. 📸: @sennarelax #architectanddesign #architecture #castle #autumn

How long do you think you could last in a dance marathon? they began in 1923 as light-hearted endurance competitions but, dance marathons eventually transformed into something rather dark. contestants, who were often in dire financial straits, were given shelter and meals as long as they kept dancing. there was also the lure of a substantial cash award for the last couple standing. rules weren’t standardized through the country, but many competitions allowed each dancer to take brief naps and/or bathroom breaks as long as their partner continued dancing. because of this, marathons could last for days, weeks and occasionally months. exhausted dancers continued to dance their way to prize money and event promoters would charge spectators an entrance fee to watch them. many cities and states eventually passed statutes outlawing dance marathons as they became increasingly seen as cruel and exploitative. nowadays, many colleges host dance marathons to raise money for charity, penn state’s thon is thought to be the longest in the u.s., lasting 46 hours. #greatdepression #dancemarathon #1920s #dancing #history

10 pictures to summarize our day in vatican city. we rode through the vatican gardens, strolled through the museums, admired the sistine chapel, and were amazed by st. peter’s basilica. climbing to the top of the basilica and taking in rome at dusk was an unforgettable experience (and workout). . #vaticancity #stpetersbasilica #sistinechapel #history #rome #italy #snuckapictureinthesistinechapel #itsokididntuseflash #dontputmeinvaticanjail

Women's pleasure is still today too overlooked, even hidden in the course of the centuries by defining women as a "pleasure" instrument. we have examples of strong women who have been able to make their way into a world dominated by misoginy. yvarichard was a brand made by nativa richard and her husban that valorized the woman and her desires, not like an "instrument" 🌹 #yvarichard #photography #boudoir #1920s #blackandwhite #paris #risque #atelier #nativarichard #history #womeninhistory #femme #lingerie #femmefatale #beauty #lingerielove #lingerielover #vintagelingerie #vintage #whoisdada #femininefeminist #feminin #girlsgirlsgirls #beauty #jadore

Today was filled with history. we had sabrina's nona (grandma) with us today so we visited the house in conegliano where she grew as a child of a farmhand for a kind hebrew family up until the germans invaded and the family was never heard from again. she was very heartbroken to see the barren land that she remembers once being so lush and and plentiful! she had many memories to share. we moved on to the church where she was baptized and also married. it has been there since the 1600s! we also visited another castle today! i could do this every day! there was even a restaurant at the castle that had the most magnificent view of the alps (which we drove past today!) that we got to eat at!. and we finished off the day by visiting the cemetery where nona's family is buried. like i said, today was all about history. we got to go back to her house afterwards where she showed me so many family photos and we got to discuss them with each other, her in her italian and me in spanish. she understood me every once in a while.😏it seemed to work out pretty great! #italy #history #girlstrip #bucketlist #me&vicki #conegliano #coneglianoitaly #travel #goplaces #ww11 #germaninvasion #meetnewpeople

The s&p 500 on monday broke its previous record of the number of days without a 3% drawdown. as it's continued to make new highs, it has broken records of other percent-move sizes. these illustrate the rock-bottom volatility that has characterized stocks this year and is showing few signs of rising anytime soon. 2017 could go down as one of the most boring years ever for the stock market. sure, the s&p 500 has closed at record highs 66 times this year, the most since the mid 1990s. . . . . . #stockmarket #money #market #history #report #percentage #s&p #volatility #record #records #trading #stocktrading #bottom #closed #highs
