View over the valley from Funa Fortress, Demerdzhi mountain
Ukraine

Panorama looking out over the valley from Funa Fortress in Crimea. The valley below is filled with trees in their autumn colours.

From the viewpoint you can see the village of Lavanda to the south-west, Luchyste village to the south-east, and the city of Alushta can just be glimpsed in the distance. Nearby are part of the ruins of Funa Fortress.

Funa Fortress was a medieval Feodorite fortress located near the foot of South Demerdzhi mountain. The fortress was built in 1423, but later destroyed by the Ottomans in 1475. Today only ruins of the fortress remain.

More About The World

Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. The dominant species on Earth is the human being, and you're one of the six billion of them! Humans have iron in their blood, and their bodies are composed of two-thirds water, just like the planet they live on. The physical composition of the Earth, its people and everything on it contains an electro-magnetic field which is not yet fully understood. Theories and legends about the origin of Earth, people and life itself abound, however they are not commonly discussed. The bulk of earth's people spend their time immersed in daily activities, leaving the big questions for later. "Who are we? Where did we come from? Where are we going? How will we get there?" Many religions and philosophies have attempted to answer these questions over the years, but so far none has given an answer that everyone on the planet can accept. In contrast to all the disagreement, the similarities among people on earth are far, far greater than any differences. Welcome again to Earth! Enjoy your stay, and try to stay calm.
