Praha - The Wonder City

These are some photos I took in 2007 when I visited Prague. Though I truly believe Prague is a wonder city with amazing architecture and a fascinating history, I hope my photos can come some way to show you its beauty. Some are very large size so I apologise in advance for that. There is some blurriness in some as well but I can assure that I have upgraded equipment and experience since then.









It was forbidden to take photos in this church so I was extremely naughty


When I uploaded these photos I got a fright from seeing that random guy behind the plants

























More to come...

Yes, it's a marvellous city. Still many more photos to come. I took a ride with this Russian guide in this very old car around the city, hence, some of the photos may show my desperate attempts to get a good photo while she zoomed around the place. I'll show some 'inside the car' photos in a future set.






























More to come!

The famous Dancing House (Tančící dům) by Milunić and Gehry


It basically says, "Attention, Junction Svobodova to Slupi closed", I assume that they're roads.
