Official cards

Latelly i've been sending a few official cards and i started to receive some cards yesterday.

DE -303758, sent by Petra.
I got this one today. This is the Sababurg Castle in northern Germany.
"The Dornröschenschloss Sababurg, castle of the "Sleeping Beauty", invites fairytale fans with castle garden, battlement, climbing of the tower, ruins of the palace and Wurzgarden. The fairy tale walk "Sleeping Beauty" inspires big and small guests with the fairy tales of the brothers Grimm. If you want, you can stay the night in the castle Sababurg because today it is a hotel." in: http://www.weserbergland-tourismus.de/en/entdeckertipps/burgen-schloesser/

SE-9170 from Merja.
This is my 1st official card from Sweden but is my 2nd card from Merja because we've already traded on the forum.
"Skokloster Castle, built in the baroque style between 1654 and 1676, is one of the mayor monuments from the period when Sweden was one of the most powerful countries in Europe.
Since the owner, General Carl Gustaf Wrangel, died in 1676 the castle was never really completed. This is a fact that you can see by your self - just visit the banqueting hall which remains in the exakt same conditions, tools included, as the builders left it the same day as Wrangel died (the builders were afraid they that they would never get paid).
Also the rest of the castle has remained amazingly untouched for more than 300 years, giving this building a unique authenticity. Wrangel and the following owners collected items like armoury, books, silver and textiles, as well some artifacts from south america. Everything is left intact since late 1700th century.
Skokloster is considered one of the great castles of Baroque Europe." - in:
