AUSTRIA_riverstones mosaics in Sala terrena of Greinburg Castle, Austria

This is just a fragment of mosaics of Sala Terrena. Those grotto rooms (17th cent) are unique in Austria as one of the earliest examples of such an interior room north of the Alps. Outstanding and unusual, spacious rooms all covered with figurative and ornamental mosaics in Danube pebbles (riverstones). BTW, Greinburg is the oldest residential castle of Austria (was built from 1500 to 1700).
