The Ponte Vecchio with jewellery shops in Florence, Italy.

The Ponte Vecchio | Florence, Italy

The Ponte Vecchio “The Old Bridge” replaced the Roman Stone Bridge of Florence in 1345. Today it is impossible to be in Florence and not pass by it on foot, enjoying the marvellous jewellery shops that have situated on Ponte Vecchio for centuries. It is also one of the most interesting bridges that I have ever seen because of its construction and the history it carries.

Karlskirche (Charles Church) with a pink sky background in Vienna, Austria.

Karlskirche | Vienna, Austria

There is nothing more fascinating than seeing a city wake up. Any area that is busy for 20 hours or more, has those few moments of pure tranquility. In Vienna, the place where I could enjoy this the most was The Karlskirche. On a regular day, the square in front of the Church would be busy but, on this occasion, it was empty and there were no noises from the busy city ground.

El Pilar Cathedral and its reflection in The Ebro River during the night in Zaragoza, Spain.

El Pilar Cathedral by The Ebro River | Zaragoza, Spain

The full name of this structure is The Cathedral-Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar and in Spanish – Catedral-Basílica de Nuestra Señora del Pilar. The façade which you see was built between 1681 and 1872 in Baroque style. When I looked at the lights warmly enlightening this building and the decorative couples, I had a rather One Thousand and One Night Tales moment in my mind, rather than the European Baroque Church.

Bâtiment des Forces Motrices BFM in Geneva, Switzerland at night

Bâtiment des Forces Motrices BFM | Geneva, Switzerland

The Bâtiment des Forces Motrices, also known as BFM in Geneva, is a building, which immediately put me under its spell. During an evening stroll through the second largest city in Switzerland the sumptuous illuminated building in the middle of the river Rhône caught my photographic eye in a heartbeat. The BFM was originally constructed between 1883 and 1892 as a hydroelectric power plant and was used as such until 1960.

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.

Wieliczka Saltwater Lake

Saltwater Lake | Wieliczka, Poland

You won’t have many opportunities to see a saltwater lake more than hundred meters underground. In the Wieliczka Salt Mine near Krakow you have that possibility, but only for short time. It’s just that the guided tour doesn’t give you much time to have a look on the lake. The lights are turned on only when a group is present, apart from that the lake lies in almost total darkness.
