Castle Ruins, Sirotci hradek, Klentice

Two weeks ago I was given a knee brace so I could walk normally not as a Quasimodo. If you are sitting whole day long by the desk, how to train knees, walking etc. Great idea was to travel outside of Brno and go walking. One of the great targets in the South Moravian region are Castle Ruins, Sirotci hradek in Klentice.

Slavkov Castle, Austerlitz

Is a Baroque palace in Slavkov u Brna, in the Czech Republic. The small town and the castle are chiefly known for the Battle of Austerlitz. I tis nice to place pictures as there are huge gardens all around. Whenever I go there, I like the lagoon with castle reflection, gardens and architecture with ditches and statues.

Veveri Castle

Is an originally ducal and royal castle some 12 kilometres northwest of Brno city centre. To be honest this is one of the nearest castles to visit from Brno as also public transport passes by.  I do not want to write about the history but it is necessary to point out that the castle is or was rebuilt, I mean reconstructed after it was destructively used by the socialistic - communist regime.

Castle - Velhartice

Is the stone castle in the surroundings of Klatovy or in a broader sense of Zelezna Ruda. The castle was built at the beginning of 14th century and is situated over the village of Velhartice. If anyone comes to see it there are several interesting dominants belonging to the castle. Also, the journey is interesting as well as the valley where the same-named village is situated.

Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul

I do really like night view of this cathedral. To take such a photo you need an appropriate angle, no tram wires, no cars, etc.  Everyone tries to take a picture from the front, however, it can be either difficult or almost impossible. If I pass the cathedral and continue to the Spielberg Castle there are better opportunities to take better pictures, of course, rearview. In the end, they are attractive to me as well.

Trip to Prague – Vysehrad

From time to time it is a good idea to visit the Capital as there are many opportunities to take pictures. When I was invited to Prague by a friend of mine I was glad to arrive. She took me to see Vyšehrad, cemetery and many other places, we also had a good meal and drink as well. Excellent trip.

Svihov Water Castle

Is a famous ‘floating’ stone castle situated in the town of the same name near Klatovy. The castle is surrounded by water. In medieval times, it functioned as a protection against the enemies. Now it seems to be more or less attractive for tourists... Anyway, the nature around the city itself is beautiful and those who admire old castles and history would find this place interesting.

Marian Valley

Is a large area located on the eastern outskirts of Brno, near the district Brno - Líšeň. It is a part of the Říčky valley, which stretches from the cottage settlements Lhotka up to the village Podolí.

Vienna Architecture

A short trip to Vienna – architecture. Arriving in Vienna, Austria we got out at the Maria Theresa Monument and there were two extremely nice buildings, museums one as another.

Belfry on the Hill

There is one of many places on hills near Brno, wherefrom there can be seen beautiful landscapes of the villages, fields and anything else. One of these places is Belfry. It is small marvellous belfry on the hill surrounded by trees, people like to organize weddings here as well. Really nice place to visit.
