Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
On Easter we decided to make a short excursion, not only because we were still tired of the long drive of the day before, but also because we wanted to become better acquainted with the roads in the Czech Republic. Our plan was to explore Bohemian Switzerland.
This park, which is also called Czech Switzerland, is located in the west-northern part of the Czech Republic. Mikulasovice – the place where we were staying – is right at the edge of this beautiful region. The name “Switzerland” comes from two 18th century Swiss artists who stayed in this region and were reminded of their homeland, when they saw the Bohemian landscapes. However, the highest mountain here is only about 700 meters high.
The scenery is maybe not as dramatic as the Dolomites, but it was still very picturesque! Czechs and Germans love to hike here. We had a very relaxing drive, going from one small village to another. Unfortunately, it was very cloudy and cold and it sometimes rained or snowed as well. So, I decided to go for black and white for my pictures.
