Chotkovy sady is my favourite place for an overview over the city of Prague. You wonder why? Well, first of all you have this amazing view over the city. And second, even more important, most of the time you can enjoy this view without having any people around. Even on New Years Eve, there was only one family standing there apart from us, enjoying the fireworks over the Old Town.
The Centennial Hall, the UNESCO World Heritage in Wroclaw, is not only the hall itself and the singing fountain in front of it. Next to it, there is the Japanese Garden I showed you some photos of and the fountain is surrounded by this Circuit which serves as an interesting capture.
There are a couple of ways to walk up or down from Vyšehrad in Prague. That’s the one I call the scenic route as it leads down to the Vltava providing a nice view over the golden town along the river. But even though I was waiting on that spot for a long time, I didn’t manage to get a shot without any people. It seemed that the way is the choice for a lot of people.
The Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) is part of the UNESCO World Heritage and is the biggest Gothic cathedral in the world. The building process started in 1248 and was completed in 1880. No landmark in Germany is visited as often as the Cologne Cathedral, I guess that’s also due to the fact that the Cologne Central Station is located right next to it, so that you can visit the Cathedral even when you only have an hour to spend in Cologne. On the photo you see the cross on the eastern side of the Cologne Cathedral. More information on the photo!
On a short trip to Bonn in the west of Germany we took a one day trip to Cologne. The days before were rather grey and not good to take any shots and I already got a bit frustrated. But when we took the train to Cologne, the sky started to clear up. I guess this sunset was my compensation for the weather before. More information on the photo!
