Architecture

Pernstejn Castle

Pernstejn Castle is a castle on a rock above the village of Nedvědice and the rivers Svratka and Nedvědička, some 40 kilometres northwest of Brno, in the South Moravian Region, Czech Republic. Pernstejn came to be known as the marble castle because of the marble-like stone used to frame the doors and windows.

Stone stairs to the municipal office

Brno city hall and stone stairs to the municipal office. Very interesting stone stairs to our city municipal office with the heavy carved railings. One of many interesting pieces of architecture here in Brno.

Lednice castle and the park

Very often this particular historical landmark is called Lednice Castle. Basically both names depict one and the same and surroundings. Lednice castle is part of the whole complex of historical landmarks. This complex is well known as Lednice-Valtice area and is heavily visited by tourist from all over the world, not only Czech Republic, Moravia or Slovakia. I do not want to write anything about this chateau or castle and the whole Lednice-Valtice area. Anyone who is interested can find plenty of information from historians or others.

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.

Night picture of Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul, Brno

I do really like night view of this cathedral. And was trying to get beautiful night picture. To take such a photo you need appropriate angle, no tram wires, no cars, etc. and deep dark night. Recently I met all these conditions and took such a picture. Even though I set my camera in wrong way, I mean low aperture, high ISO, finally I got few pictures that can be published.

Walking around in Olomouc

Olomouc I very nice city. Not so big, not so small and there are number of places that can be visited. When I bought my new Pentax K-3 back in 2014, this city was one of the firsts to walk around and take few pictures.

Stone bridge at night

Train incoming to the railway station via the bridge. The railway bridge over the river Svratka, or the so-called Vienna Viaduct, sometimes called the Brno Viaduct, is at first sight a railway bridge, which at first glance attracts with its construction. One day I immortalized it in the evening or almost at night with just passing trains, but only like that.

Transmitter Hady from the road

Anytime I drive home I can see one of the Brno landmarks, transmitter Hady. So once when not in a rush I have decided to stop by the road and take few shots with telephoto lens. I was very surprised that there are people visible how they sport walk etc. Never realised so much can b see from the main road.
