The Church of St Anne is famous for its representation of a flamboyant and brick gothic architectural style in Lithuania. What was fascinating was that the exterior of the church had remained almost unchanged since the 15th century, when it was erected. Thanks to St Anne Church, the old town of Vilnius can potentially be signed to the UNESCO World Heritage list.
The Gloriette ensemble located up on the hill and The Neptune Fountain are part of the park surrounding Schönbrunn Palace – a must-see in Vienna. The outcome of this picture was more than what I had expected. The air on this day was hazy because of the heat, however, this haziness gave a glow to the marble statues on The Fountain and The Gloriette itself creating such a beautiful canvas.
This Medieval Castle is one of the most recognizable landmarks from Paphos. It is situated on the side of the harbour and is an absolute must-see for visitors (also from inside) in this town. The Paphos Castle dates back to Byzantine Times when it was built as a fortress for the city. Today, the Castle serves as an artistic centre.
The upper section of the ensemble displayed the personification of freedom. The female statue figuratively looks over 2 EOKA fighters who are opening the gates of a prison, as shown. I was deeply impressed at how much detail the postures had been designed and at how much the relief of independence was constructed on their faces. In a moment of reflection, you could almost “breath in” the atmosphere of joy and freedom.
It seems that this country loved this artist – as his statue is one of the very few in the capital Podgorica. The shiny posture of the singer stands out on the yellow ground of the park along the river. With The Millennium Bridge in the background, it was an excellent composition for a photograph.
