Prague Castle at Night | Czech Republic

Prague Castle at Night
Prague Castle (Pražský hrad) and Charles Bridge (Karlův most) are certainly the most photographed sights in Prague.

For me, Prague will always be something special. I studied there for a semester and I had a great time. Well, during my studies I had neither a good camera nor a tripod, but I knew I will be back one day. So when I finally bought my Manfrotto tripod I used the very next weekend for a trip back to the Czech capital. I know it’s the standard shot of Prague, but I desperately wanted to take it. So this was my first night shot taken with a tripod and I think it was a very good investment.
