Kaleto Fortress at Belogradchik in Bulgaria.

I saw a picture of the Belogradchik Fortress on a computer screen saver & decided it was a place I would add to my bucket list as a place to visit.

I let my fingers type 'Belogradchik Fortress' into Google to learn more about & find out where it was. I now hope I can someday organise a trip & visit it myself.
