Arkona was the last Slavic castle destroyed in 1168 by Danish invaders. The old temple dedicated to a pagan deity Svantevit was also destroyed. After that, Christianization has been spreading across the region’s population.
The song is inspired by the majestic beauty of a temple city of the North Germany. This instrumental piece also describes the very morning, before Arkona faces its death. “A morning upon Arkona” (“Jutro nad Arkonom”) was primary featured on my old pagan metal band, Slavogorje (album “Priroda Opstanka” / “Nature of Survival”).
