Slovakian City of Nitra

Posted by Picasa

Fortified Slovakian City of Nitra, 11th Century (after Mencl);

1. Bishop's Palace;

2. Upper City;

3. Suburb.

It appears that the Bishop's Palace is fortified within it's own external fortification. The upper city is surrounded by a permanent fortification (stone), while the Suburb is contained within a wooden palisade.
