I personally believe UNESCO work heritage monuments are tremendously important places and only trough them one can learn about people, culture and in which they have been placed. Despite many of UNESCO heritage are temples of various religions, it is their style and stories which give them importance for people no matter of religion they belongs to.

First stop on my journey was Kassel. Kassel is famous mostly for brother Grimms who had been living and collecting they stories here. In city is even museum to devoted to brother Grimms. But my aim was to climb higher, to UNESCO world heritage site – Hercules. 8 meters high statue of Hercules is on top of the hill above the city. Place is unique by its park and cascade fountains running down in summer period.
