I think this is called The Eagle's Nest. Pretty cool place on the Black Sea.

What an amazing place!do you think it was originally built as a fortress, or just a rich man's folly?

@CElliottUK: Well now, there you go asking "intelligent questions", now, I gotta go look it up and ask people stuff and god forbid "lean something!" Ok, so I will get back to you, but at first glance, as it sorta faces a harbor, I thought an ancient light house ... but I will find out!

Indeed a very cool place or fortress. Excellent view point. Where were you then?
