Stolpen Castle lies south of the village Stolpen, which lies 20 km east of Dresden , in Germany . Stolpen Castle was built in the 13th century on a basaltic rock - a material that is very difficult to work with. It served as a border fortress of the bishops of Meissen till the 16th century. Since 1559, it has been maintained by the Saxon government. At the end of the 17th century, the castle was rebuilt into a military fort by the elector August John George II. Thanks to the resistance of basalt, the castle has remained almost intact until these days. It survived the attacks of the Napoleonic troops, the Hussites, the Saxon war, and more. One of the most interesting sights of Stolpen Castle is a 82 m deep hand carved well.
