    Good that you took the opportunity to have a look around Gotha and take some pictures. I've been there twice on business, but I never really saw very much and haven't made a VT page on Gotha, just one Off the Beaten Path tip on my Eisenach page.

    Looks like a beautiful town. I wonder why they needed such an enormous castle. Excellent pictures, Alan.
