Jerónimos Monastery and The Garden in Lisbon; Portugal

Jerónimos Monastery | Lisbon, Portugal

Golden hour is one of our favourite times to visit the Jerónimos Monastery. The tourist buses disappear briefly, and the soft evening light frames the Manueline style façade of the building and the gardens become a calm wonderland.

Pier Molo in Sopot on a sunny day

Pier in Sopot | Poland

The pier (Molo) in Sopot is with more than 500m the longest wooden pier in Europe. If you’re not a resident of the small town you always have to pay a little fee to enter, but anyways it was always very crowded there.

The Old Town of Bucharest is full of contrasts. Ruins and poverty in the Romanian capital right next to hotels and luxury.

City of Contrasts | Bucharest, Romania

When I prepared myself for the trip to Romania, I often stumbled upon the word “contrasts” connected to Bucharest. How often can you drink a (surprisingly expensive) beer in front of a ruin? This photo is taken right in the Old Town of Bucharest and I think you get a feeling for what I mean with “contrasts”. Just a few streets further they build a new 5-star Hotel.

First Light on the Kraków Main Square | Poland

The Main Square of Kraków (Rynek Główny) is the central element of the city and no tourist will ever visit Kraków and don’t walk on this square. On this photo you can see the Kraków Cloth Hall (Sukiennice) with the Adam Mickiewicz Monument in the foreground. The sun just made its way over the roofs and throws the town’s silhouette on the walls of the Cloth Hall.
