The Church of Santa Maria de Belém together with the Jerónimos Monastery, are the finest examples of the Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline style. Though carrying similar architectural styles, in our modern world now, the church and the monastery have quite a contrasting experience.
The structure of the “dome” began in 2007 and was completed 9 months later when the author, artist Miquel Barcelo placed his signature in the middle of the Cupola. Knowing that for this 1,400 square meters of ceiling, they needed 35,000 kilos of paint – this was met with great awe! The art piece on the Cupola is a metaphor of what the United Nations represent.
Can you imagine waking up every morning and enjoying this view? The stay in Berjaya Langkawi Resort passed by very quickly. Almost every year that we make our return home, we are reminded of our stay and we miss it dearly. But – we never really know, it may be that one day we take this route again and enjoy this destination.
The entire stay in Berjaya Resort in Langkawi, Malaysia was truly another experience for us. This is a photo of… a bathroom in one of the premiere chalets on the water in Berjaya Resort.

Maxim Gorky Colonnade is the icon for the SPA building in the Region of Karlovy Vary. In fact, it’s the largest construction in Czechia! The steel structure was built in the neo-baroque style and was untouched by attacks during the Second World War. The ceilings of this building present a metaphor of humans’ desire to fly – the frescos of these are depicted in one of my other photographs from Mariánské Lázně.
