Photographer's Note

064 / Prague at sundown

Dating back to 870 AD, Pražský hrad (or Prague Castle in English) is the world's largest ancient castle, and remains the definitive highlight of any trip to Prague. The castle straddles a low hill besides the Vltava river, and is crowned by the Gothic spires of the St. Vitus Cathedral. The castle spills down from its gates, running through streets and buildings that draw from a mish-mash of architectural styles prevalent in Europe through the last millenium, all the way down to the stunning Karlův most (Charles Bridge in English), which links the complex to the main town on the other side of the river. Watching the ensemble illuminated at night is a sight to behold, nothing short of a living fairytale.
