Tisnov Area - Part 3



Finally back with a new entry. After a long time I finally managed to finish the last part of the Tisnov area. This update will feature the city of Tisnov, several villages and a few overviews of the entire area.

The city of Tisnov was founded in 1061 and to this day it is the seat of the diocese of Tisnov. The old city consists of two parts: the Old Town and the left bank of the river which runs through the city, and the so-called Bischop's Town where the city's cathedral is located. Inbetween, on a tiny island in the river, is the old city hall. Let's have a look.

The cathedral and the Bishop's palace.


The old city hall.


An overview of the Bishop's Town.


The Old Town and its main parish church.



Two overviews of the old city center and the surrounding areas.



Adjacent to Tisnov is the ancient village of Hlohovec.


On the other side of the ponds (see part 1 and 2) is the town of Klárov.



An additional view of Lednice with the gardens of the local chateau(see part 2).


And finally, two overviews of the Tisnov area. For orientation (first picture): on top the city of Tisnov, to the left Valtice (see part 1), bottom left Klárov and to the right Lednice (see part 2).

This is wonderful. The square and church, and then the bridge!! Just beautiful city scenes.


Edit: and congratulations, you're number one on Ben's Top Ten this week.

A lovely European town, one of the nicest i've seen. But it does seem to just start from nowhere looking a little odd

I think your abilities and talents are at a completely different level than most of us.  What an incredible and seamless city.   You'd never know that the game is divided into thousands of tiny squares with impossible rules attached.  


I would love to see a play-by-play city, as in, you post pictures as you build so we can see some of your secrets.  You've got some blending tricks I've never seen before.  


Thanks for sharing your work.

I quite like that it starts a little abruptly. Like a bit more of a fringe would be awesome but like it could be a small old town boundary or something? I think this is a brilliant city. +1'd
