This is not the first photo of this point which I will show you. And it certainly won’t be the last. What can I say, I simply love this place in Prague. This unique view of the Castle and the Charles Bridge that leads you to the other side of the Vltava River. And in addition, the quiet zone in the otherwise rough water, that makes all the lights look twice as nice.
This time I couldn’t let it to re-shoot a photo from here either – despite Daria complaining that I should rather think of something new. But I had almost missed the opportunity for this photo! Just 15 minutes earlier I was still on the other side, up on the right near the castle. Fortunately, we were able to catch a tram that took us directly, yet painfully slow, to aforementioned location. I could catch the last light above the castle just in time, since afterwards the thick rain clouds brought a quick end to the dusk.
