    Do you have any clues at all -- such as an approximate country? Your image seems to have some text cropped away; what does that say? Where is it from? – Henning Makholm Apr 26 at 1:39
  • Not getting anything with an image reverse search :( – BritishSam Apr 26 at 9:41
  • I have no idea what country it is in. The text at the top does not go with the picture. – Ruecatt Apr 26 at 20:50

As per the comments, it appears to be Veliki Tabor Castle, in Croatia.

Wiki link

Veliki Tabor (Croatian: Great Camp) is a castle and museum in northwest Croatia, dating from the middle of 15th century. The castle's present appearance dates back to the 16th century.

Most of the castle was built by the Hungarian noble family of Ráttkay, in whose ownership it remained until 1793.

It is located in the region of Zagorje near Desinić, 8 km (5.0 mi) west of Pregrada, 334 m (1,096 ft) above sea level. It has around 3,340 m2 (36,000 sq ft). The castle is owned by the state, which manages it as a museum and a tourist site.

  • The oldest parts of the castle date from the 12th century. The first written mention of it is in Ecclesia sancti Gheorgii de Zothla from 1334. Admittedly, the current state is from the 16th century indeed. Both the French and the Hungarian Wikipedia mentions this although in different articles. – chx May 8 at 3:37
