Picture of the Kotor Cathedral, taken just before sunrise.

The Cathedral of Saint Tryphon | Kotor, Montenegro

We visited this Adriatic Sea port right after New Year Eve, which explains the festive lights on the buildings. Consecrated in 1166, the Kotor Cathedral was built in honor of Saint Tryphon, who is considered by the locals as the patron and protector of the city. Before that, in the 10th century, an older church existed there. It has been keeping Saint Tryphon’s remains.

Prince Felipe Museum of Science, which is part of Valencia’s City Of Art And Sciences.

Sunset at Prince Felipe Museum of Science | Valencia, Spain

I took this particular image at the Valencia’s City Of Art And Sciences, while the light was mild and delicate. Surprisingly, this remarkable complex has been built in the former bed of the River Turia. It’s not only the Museum of Science you see on the photo, there are also other buildings, related to science and technology, such as the Planetarium; or to nature – like the Oceanographic park, and also to art – as the Opera house.

Basilica–Cathedral of Our Lady of the Pillar in Zaragoza

Postcard from Zaragoza | Spain

Zaragoza turned out to be the positive surprise of our trip to Spain. Many spacious squares, ideal conditions for photography and very interesting architecture. Moreover, the buildings were illuminated throughout all night and long in the morning, while tourists were nowhere to be found at this time. An absolute Dream!

Prague Castle and Charles Bridge by Night

My favourite Spot | Prague, Czech Republic

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.

Semperoper Opera House in Dresden exterior

Semperoper | Dresden, Germany

The Semperoper is probably the most famous opera house in Germany. The reason however, is quite different as one might expect: The Radeberger Group – Germany’s largest brewery group – uses the Opera House for many years in the background of the advertisements for the Radeberger beer. Even if I try to resist any advertising as much as possible, I must admit that it immediately came to my mind as I stood there.

Berlin City West Kurfürstendamm and KaDeWe

City West | Berlin, Germany

If you amble along the Kurfürstendamm or the Tauentzienstraße you can occasionally get a feel for how Berlin must have looked in its Golden 20s. Be it the ladies at the sides of the street, marvelling at handbags that can cost much more than 1,000 euros. Be it the gourmet who goes to the KaDeWe, the glamorous “Department Store of the West” to purchase an exclusive wine for his collection.

Prague Royal Way with Old Town and Castle

Royal Way | Prague, Czech Republic

The path from the Republic Square up to the St. Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle is known as the royal way of Prague. For centuries this was the way that had to be taken by the Bohemian kings to be crowned in St. Vitus Cathedral. Since in 1836 the last king was crowned in Bohemia, nowadays the Royal Way is just a tourist attraction – but one well worth seeing!

Dresden Golden Alley in the Old Town

Through the Golden Alleys | Dresden, Germany

On the way back from the Frauenkirche to the opera I had already everything what I wanted captured on memory card and could slow down – until I turned around. Then I saw the dome of the Frauenkirche shine over the golden alleys of Dresden. So just one last photo before running back to the train station…
