This photo shows the Charles Bridge in Prague, with the guard tower on the side of the historic old town. It’s the old, traditional way to get from the royal side of the city to the civil old town. Most photos from Prague are taken from exactly the opposite site of the river. The place from which I took this photo however is rarely visited by tourists. A missed opportunity, just like most photographers pack up their stuff as soon as the blue hour finished – but why?
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.
As you know, Prague is a pretty unique place for me. I have so many fond memories and I am glad each time when I can walk for a few days through the pretty streets. And of course, each time I have to cross the Charles Bridge at least once. During dawn, it is absolutely amazing and the various statues welcome you in the silence of a Sunday morning.
