Spilberk and Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul. If there is beautiful weather I like going out for a walk even to the well-known places I see almost every day. This time I visited Spilberk castle again and decided to walk down from the Castle towards the Cathedral. I walked down the alley most people use and stopped at few points to take pictures.
Mikulov is a town on the way to Austria. And anybody travelling from Brno to Vienna have to pass it. City is not very big, but it is famous for its wine, brothels and a castle. The Mikulov castle cannot be overlooked and many people passing through this town come and visit it.
One day I did the same, parked the car in the centre and went up a small hill to visit the castle. As a building it is nothing exceptional, however garden is beautiful similarly as views from around the castle.
Podebrady Spa is a small town or a city with Spa. I have visited it some time ago. To be honest I do not remember this place very well, as it was not exceptional to me. What I remember most is I took most of the pictures during the rain. For example I took pictures of Podebrady Castle from the opposite bank. Luckily rain drops are not so visible.
Ruined Castle Rabí is a stunning historical site located in the village of Rabí, close to the city of Klatovy. The castle has been standing there since the 14th century and it played an important role in the history of the region. However, after centuries of wars and neglect, the castle has been abandoned and left to decay.
Ruined castle are somehow interesting. The feeling when you pass by damaged, ruined walls, feeling of the history. One of the ruined castles visited is Cimburk. It is situated in the forest. Walk to its premises takes some time and effort. As soon as you enter the gate there are displayed ruins. At the moment being rebuilt.
Boskovice castle in winter, it is called castle but in reality is almost a ruin. Better say it is a ruin of old Castle. Next to this ruin is also a Chateau, however at the time of my visit it was closed so I took steep journey up to the castle and enjoyed beautiful view into the valley and forest. As the Boskovice castle was closed as well I just took few pictures of the walls, towers and near surrounding.
Visit in Trebon - have you ever had a sense of feeling you arrive to some place fort the first time in your life and after few moments you think have lived there for years? I experienced such a feeling when visited Trebon for the first time. I was happy to see small city with lanes, water, parks and great architecture.
The Punkva Caves (Czech: Punkevní jeskyně) are a cave system of the Czech Republic located north of the city of Brno, near the town of Blansko. The Punkva River flows through it. Part of it is the Macocha Gorge, its sinkhole is about 138.7 meters deep and also the deepest of its kind (light hole type) in Central Europe.
Everyone have some favorite places connected with his childhood or some life experience. Whenever I visit my native town I like to make small round to visit places I have someone connected with my past. Thus I like walking around Klatovy Black tower, Evangelical church especially its background where are great stone stairs with stone carved railing. As soon as I visit these I like walking or riding outside the city to places where I played or ride a bike as a small boy. Photos are not so interesting but they are of great value to me.
