[ Welcome to my mini series of experimental cities. This city is still in construction and not fully completed as of yet]
Nestled on the riverside of the Danuve river lies the town of Fan Felvo. Located within Latvian borders, this landlocked principality nation is among the world's smallest and poorest countries due to its rigorous history, most notably 'The Great Disaster of Kapernicky'.
The Principality of Fan Felvo
Ruler Prince Elric of Lichtenstein & Fan Felvo
Seat of Power Kapernicky Palace
Early HistoryThe village was founded by the blacksmith turned noble, Reigor Mano of Latvian descent in 1217 and the village functioned as a farm settlement. It wasn't until the Black Plague of 1348 that migrants from far and wide fled to Fan Felvo, due to its remoteness, thus far from any threat of contracting the disease. Much of the migrants were thieves who looted the homes of wealthy deceased families. They later founded 'Kingsworth' in 1350, Europe's first organized underground black market.
Curse of Fan FelvoIt was after the founding of Kingsworth that the town descended into chaos. Much of its residents called it a curse due to the series of abnormal activities that began to surface after its founding, such as the death of all of the town's mayor within 10 days in office, children hiking up the mountain in the dark of night to commit suicide and the phenomena of people being unable to find their way in/out of the town territory. Prince Hale later established the Great Bridge of Fan Felvo as the major entrance/exit to the town.
The Great Disaster of KapernickyIn 1834, the town was struck with a series of unfortunate events after the royal affair between Prince Kapernicky and his mistress Loubusan, which led to Princess Ila committing suicide by blowing herself along with the Dommer Water dam with explosives. The explosion led to a series chain of events including a landslide destroying much of the city, a major flood and later the population exodus, leaving the town abandoned.
Modern Fan FelvoIn 1945, the town was repopulated by survivors of the World War. Much of the town was conserved and became museums or protected places of interests. In 1993, the town became a UNESCO site and a major tourist destination in Eastern Europe due to its history, idle serenity, mountain views and the famous warm water beach despite its cold, mountainous location.

The city's most visible structure homes an underground morgue & cemetery that is home to the city's dead from since its founding in 1299.
Great Bridge of Fan Felvo
The bridge is the only entrance and exit into the city, no other roads or ferry services exists.
