Fairy Tale Dreamcast - The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen

"I can give her no more power than what she has already. "Don’t you see how great it is? Don’t you see how men and animals are forced to serve her; how well she gets through the world barefooted? She must not hear of her power from us; that power lies in her heart, because she is a sweet and innocent child! If she cannot get to the Snow Queen by herself, and rid little Kay of the glass, we cannot help her." (read in full here)

Notre-Dame de Paris ; French for “Our Lady of Paris”, also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a historic Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture and among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture.- wikipedia

Hotel del Salto - The Incredible Gothic, Long-Abandoned Hotel in Colombia

This was the abandoned Hotel del Salto, also known as the Tequendama Falls Hotel, located in San Antonio del Tequendama, Colombia. The old hotel overlooked the Tequendama Falls on the Bogotá River in Colombia. It was opened in 1924 and shut its doors in the 1990′s. For the last 20 years, the hotel had stood abandoned with a grand haunted past. But it is now a museum.

In 1923, the building was constructed as a mansion by the architect Carlos Arturo Tapias, as a symbol of the joy and elegance of the elite citizens of the 1920’s “The Mansion of Tequendama Falls”, as the house was called, and was built during Colombia’s presidency of Pedro Nel Ospina (1922-1926).

The hotel was abandoned in the 1990s, for more than two decades, due to river contamination. The hotel’s Gothic French design and neglected beauty enhanced the idea that the hotel was haunted by local residents. After 20 years, the abandoned beauty was finally put to good use. It has become the Museum of Biodiversity and Culture, restoring the old building’s beauty and purpose.
