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.

Piazza del Duomo at sunrise – Milan, Italy.

Piazza del Duomo | Milan, Italy

Milano Duomo is the 5th largest Cathedral in the world and among this list of five – it is the oldest Cathedral. The day before I took this photo, we were enjoying some “Spritz” with a friend in a rooftop bar. From there, we had a view of the top of the Cathedral. From a bird’s eye view, you can see the many sculptures that are decorating the Duomo Towers.

Venice St Mark’s Square with St Mark’s Basilica and St Mark's Campanile – summer in Italy

St Mark’s Square | Venice, Italy

Piazza San Marco, internationally known as St Mark’s Square gained its own nickname “La Piazza” – THE Square, and I think it says a lot about Venice’s importance. There is a legend that Napoleon called it “the drawing room of Europe”. In our day, I would say the “photographing room of Europe”.

The Three Towers of San Marino are visible from a great distance when you drive through this country. Each of these medieval structures have their own “character”, name and history. The names of the towers are: Guita, Cesta and Montale.

Republic of San Marino - photo of the walls and the tower

The walls and the tower | San Marino

Somewhere I’ve read that the San Marino walls mimics the Chinese wall. Initially, I thought that it was a slightly exaggerated statement, but when I searched for compositions for my photos this thought seemed true. The complex of the city walls, three towers and the city centre of San Marino itself was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The gossip however, is that it’s the least visited country in the world.
