Star Fortresses

I am a lover of history. Many of my trips I arrange to take advantage of a visit to a star fortress, complete, restored of otherwise. Palmanova in Italy is one such place, Bourtange in Netherlands is another and we have been lucky enough to participate in re-enactment in both places. Are there any more I should be aiming for?

Oooooh! Good questions! I think they’re often called “bastion fortresses.” The one in Naarden, Netherlands is pretty great!

Thanks Eric - Gorenlo is / was another such fortress and we shall be participating in a reenactment there in October. You have provided me with somewhere to visit whilst we are over in the Netherlands!
Anyone know of fortresses like this in Eastern Europe?
