This medieval-type residence was not built by king, but by Russian businessman

Chateau Erken, in the Kabardino-Balkaria Autonomous Republic of the Russian Federation, looks like an extremely well-preserved medieval castle, but in fact, this architectural wonder is just over a decade old. Located in the vineyard countryside of Kabardino-Balkaria, Chateau Erken is a tourist attraction unlike any other in Russia. Not only does it imitate the fortress-like design of a European medieval castle, but its location in the middle of a man-made lake filled with fish and wild birds is equally impressive. People from all over the country come to visit Chateau Erken in person in this rural area of ​​southern Russia. Pictures and videos of this amazing palace have been going viral on social media for years, but some people still cannot believe that it exists and it was not built by a king but by a great businessman.

Tembulat Erkenov is synonymous with the wine industry of Kabardino-Balkaria. After graduating from the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, he was sent to work in a communist collective, but quickly rose through the ranks and eventually became deputy chairman of the Kabardino-Balkaria government. Later in life, he founded his own winery, Chateau Erken, which is recognized as one of the best in Russia.

Inspired by the palaces he visited during his many travels through Europe, Erkenov decided to build his own medieval castle; Not just a small scale replica, but an actual life size replica. The architectural wonder was completed in 2010. Today, the main operations of Chateau Ercan are located inside this magnificent palace, but the place also serves as a local tourist attraction. Those who want to see the place inside have to pay a visit, but apart from the palace and the lake, there is a lot to see from outside. It is surrounded by forests and tourists often come here to get away from the city and see wild birds. Erkenov died in 2017, leaving his son to handle the affairs of Chateau Erken. The five-storey palace built by him remains as a testament to his work.

More Americans Use Melatonin to Sleep

In a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, authors from Beijing’s Dongzimen Hospital and Zhiyuan Hospital and the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota noted that the prevalence of melatonin supplement consumption increased significantly from 1999-2000 to 2017-2018 across all demographics of use. Additionally, the team wrote that – although remaining “very little” – the prevalence of self-reported use of more than five milligrams per day also increased over time. “These estimates may raise safety concerns, especially given that the actual content of melatonin in marketed supplements may be up to 478 percent higher than the labeled ingredients, and there is evidence to support the use of melatonin for sleep disturbances.” The evidence is weak,” he said.
