Czech website says it is difficult to find a citadel that is more wonderful than the Krac des Chevaliers

PRAGUE, (ST)- A Czech website, that is interested in ancient history, affirmed in a report on Monday that is difficult to find a citadel that is more wonderful than al-Hosn citadel (Krac des Chevaliers) in Syria's Homs.

The  Czech "Historical Moments" website said that the specialty of al-Hosn citadel is not only due to the nature of the large and greatly fortified building, but also due to the fact that it is located in an area that has witnessed the oldest civilizations.

The report focused on the stages of building the citadel, explaining that it is built on an area of 3 hectares and it can accommodate about 4000 soldiers. The report clarified that this area is very big compared to that on which the biggest citadel in the Czech Republic was built, which is one hectare.

 The Czech website noted the return of security to the citadel and its vicinity after the Syrian Arab Army has liberated it from terrorist groups.

Al-Hosn is one of the biggest military citadels in the world and it was named as one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in 2006.
