Prague - The spirit of Vltava

  • Along the cobblestone

    [Malá Strana]

  • Shadows

    Crossing the bridge at night while the snow gently falls. A magic evening.

  • Humans across Vltava

    The Charles Bridge seems more peaceful from up here.

    The Charles Bridge looks less impressive from a distance.

  • The island

    Strelecky Ostrov is a small island situated in the Vltava river, somewhat reminiscent of Isola Tiberina in Rome or Île de la Cité in Paris. Unfortunately it's very small and prone to floods. The entire island was swallowed during the floods in 2002.

  • The mist

    [Malá Strana]

  • Man down, Ethan

    Does it look familiar? This is the riverside alley featured prominently in the beginning of Mission Impossible where Tom Cruise had all sorts of problems with his mission. Naturally I had to have a peek through the wooden fence where the bad guy was hiding.

  • Chivalry

    Our dining hall, complete with a wooden horse for sudden invasion plans.

    [Malá Strana]

  • In the footsteps

    In 1648 Swedish troops rushed the Charles Bridge to conquer the Old City and severely damaged the eastern bridge tower.

  • Join in the chant

    Prague is not only goth, it is also EBM!

    [Malá Strana]

  • The sound of Smetana

  • Benevolent ruler

    Not a very suitable statue to place at the entrance to the royal palace.

  • Another brick in the wall

  • King and crown

    The Prague Castle is surrounding St Vitus Cathedral.

  • The two towers

    Church of Our Lady Before Tyn is towering above Old Town square. Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe is buried in there.

  • Golem territory

    Parizska street is stretching north towards the Jewish Quarter, where Rabbi Loew supposedly created his Golem. The legend claims that the deactivated clay body is still resting in the attic of the Old New Synagogue.
