Ivan Vazov National Theatre in the morning sun in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Ivan Vazov National Theatre | Sofia, Bulgaria

When constructed in 1904, the building was simply called the “National Theatre” in Sofia. The first play performed, happened to be Ivan Vazov’s “The Outcasts” and later on the theatre was named after this Bulgarian artist. The neoclassical style of architecture is one of my favourites and there in the heart of Sofia, it seemed to fit perfectly.

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in Sofia, Bulgaria. An example of a Byzantine Revival style of architecture.

Alexander Nevsky Cathedral | Sofia, Bulgaria

This cross-domed Orthodox basilica was one of the monuments that initially sparked my interest in photography and of course, I eventually developed a longing to visit Sofia. The Alexander Nevsky Cathedral in the capital of Bulgaria, is one of the largest Eastern Orthodox churches in the world and incorporates different architectural elements from across Europe.

A beautiful view on the Helix Bridge, Marina Bay Sands and Art Science Museum.

The Helix Bridge | Singapore

The Helix Bridge in Singapore; a design inspired by human DNA. This was something very difficult for me to imagine, even before I had actually seen it. This connection of science and architecture stunned me, and I felt that I would not be able to return to Berlin without capturing this rare composition.

Lisbon Panorama from St George Castle; Portugal in the winter.

Panorama from St George Castle | Lisbon, Portugal

This old castle, São Jorge, is likely one of the oldest, historical sites to visit in Lisbon. The hill that Saint George Castle is situated on, was previously inhabited by the Celtic tribe, the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians and Romans. This site was built in the 10th century as a protection against invading groups; the first walls were built in order to do this. Centuries later, the castle survived through many earthquakes, sieges and even the ever-changing rulers.

Liechtenstein – Vaduz Castle. A Summer visit in the Alpine country.

Vaduz Castle | Vaduz, Liechtenstein

The Vaduz Castle, located in Liechtenstein, was given this title due to its location’s capital –Vaduz. It’s the symbol of the country, a most majestic sight that I have personally experienced and this is also the home of the Princely Family of Liechtenstein. Unfortunately, this site is not open to the public, but it is still worth admiring from the outside and enjoying the views of the Alps.

Vilnius winter photo of The Church of St Anne; Lithuania.

Church of St Anne | Vilnius, Lithuania

The Church of St Anne is famous for its representation of a flamboyant and brick gothic architectural style in Lithuania. What was fascinating was that the exterior of the church had remained almost unchanged since the 15th century, when it was erected. Thanks to St Anne Church, the old town of Vilnius can potentially be signed to the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The 25 de Abril Bridge and Christ The King statue on Tagus River – Lisbon, Portugal.

The 25 de Abril Bridge and Christ The King statue | Lisbon, Portugal

The 25 de Abril Bridge connects the city of Lisbon with the municipalities of Almada. It is the 32nd largest suspended bridge in the world. During the day, you will see that it appears as a dark red colour and it reminded me so much of the Golden Bridge in San Francisco. Just behind 25 de Abril Bridge in the municipality of Almada stands a statue of Jesus Christ – as its name emphasises – “Sanctuary of Christ The King”.

Lugano and Lugano Lake during a summer in the Alps; Ticino region in Switzerland.

Lugano Lake in the Alps | Switzerland

If you connect Switzerland with the Alpine scenery and the typical cold weather – this is the right connection, but it is not everywhere. There is a place named Lugano in Switzerland that is an Italian speaking Ticino region, where palm trees and a lot of flowers grows. The sun shines often, though, your experience there will include a lot more – a view of the Alps and enjoying a lot of Swiss chocolate.

Milano Bosco Verticale (“Vertical Forest”) in Italy.

Bosco Verticale | Milan, Italy

The Bosco Verticale – “The Vertical Forest” was one of the most unique buildings I had ever seen in Milan. There were 900 trees, 5,000 shrubs and 11,000 floral plants that had been imbedded against the two towers. The towers were built in this style, to reduce smog and increase oxygen levels.
