Subject: Fagaras Citadel, Romania


Dear Sirs,

The following text has already been sent to:
dl.roumanie@unesco.org
and
cnr@cnr-unesco.ro

About a week ago. No reply.

I am writing to you regarding the deplorable state of one of Romania's oldest Citadel: FAGARAS

http://www.draculascastle.com/html/fagarasview.html

How and why this citadel/fortification has not been added to the World Heritage List, is beyond anybody's understanding.

People in the Fagaras area are watching in dismay how, day in and day out, year after year,
this great 13th Century historical monument is decaying and falling apart.

We respectfully urge you Sirs, to look into this matter and please notify us regarding further steps to be taken
in order to insure the survival of this magnificent citadel/historical landmark.

Best regards,

That's a pretty castle. Looks cozy.
Blessed is he who shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is his brother's keeper. And I will strike down those who attempt to destroy my brothers and you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

Sadly true. You've gotta admit that it'd probably make a nice place to live today with the proper accommodations though.
