    That’s not cobblestone, it was an old map named Castle

      Thanks for the comment Ersin!

      Maybe in previous Counter-Strike games the map was called “Castle”, but in CS:GO it is Cobblestone, I played on it 😀

        I just checked, it seems that the map was called de_castle in Counter-Strike: Source

          OMG no, Castle and cobble stone are different maps.

          Castle (de_castle) is from operation breakout. And this map is based on Predjamski Castle

          Cobblestone (in cs source it was “cbble”) is totaly different map, and that map is NOT based on Predjamski Castle
