Genghis Khan tried to invade Japan but his flat bottom river barges were sank in a typhoon, called Kamikaze, The Divine Wind. He fought the Koreans for 100 years. They never gave up, until the Mongols accepted them as equals. This may be relevant even today.
Genghis Khan was more than a blood thirsty killer. In the first place he was excellent in networking and protecting the trade routes, especially the Old Silk Road from China all the way to Europe. He conquered China itself and built the greatest empire ever, with his trade networks. Today China is trying to do the same, on a global scale. Since their Civil War so far they had a couple of small wars with Dalai Lama, the Wiegers and Vietnam. It is amazing that they are able to operate a huge copper mine in Waziristan.
Yes, they made improvements.
The castle was held by the Jaegers in WW 2 for 3 weeks. 40 of them died in it and 240 Russians. Marshall Malinovsky came to move it along. A sniper tried to kill him but was killed himself, along with his dog. His hide was behind the chimney of the cheese factory. One salvo from the Katyushas burned down the castle and ended the fight. A Romanian family from San Francisco renovated it, with an EU grant. They did a nice job, authentic and unique. The castle was built after the Genghis Khan raids in the 13th Century, in a defensive line to protect the gold mines. This is a key place in the European history. If you understand it, you can appreciate better what is going on in our World today. In peace time the castle was part of a hunting preserve. The restaurants offer a number of classic venison dishes, in keeping with the historical tradition.
