Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
I have to admit it, I fell in love with Prague immediately! I had never seen so many beautiful intact historical buildings in one town. This is a place I surely want to visit again and again.
The three major parts of Prague are:
It was a cloudy, sometimes rainy day when The Viking and I were there, so I took my pictures in black and white. I also thought it suited better with the historical buildings. Today, I post a random selection of sights and places. The next days, I will post some places that had a special meaning for us.
This is what the UNESCO site says about the historical center of Prague:
Prague belongs to the group of historic cities which have preserved the structure of their development until the present times. Within the core of Prague, successive stages of growth and changes have respected the original grand-scale urban structure of the Early Middle Ages. This structure was essentially and greatly enlarged with urban activities in the High Gothic period with more additions during the High Baroque period and in the 19th century. It has been saved from any large-scale urban renewal or massive demolitions and thus preserves its overall configuration, pattern and spatial composition.
