Picture of the day - December 18, 2008

"Castle Hill" - Prague, Czech Republic

Nighttime photo of "Castle Hill" in Prague.
Note: Photographer wishes to remain anonymous.

Last December I featured a beautiful interior view of Prague's spectacular Cathedral of St. Vitus. With Christmas once again just a week away, I thought it would be nice to revisit that majestic house of worship - this time with a gorgeous view of "Castle Hill".

Prague Castle has been the dominant feature of the Czech Republic capitol city's skyline for centuries, and St. Vitus Cathedral is easily the defining element in this stunning view from the other side of the Vltava River. During the Cold War the beauty and magnificence of Castle Hill and St. Vitus were pretty much off-limits to most westerners, but today they collectively rank as one of the world's most popular tourist attractions.

    What an amazing view! There are many beautiful places like this in countries that once stood behind the iron curtain. Thank goodness most of them are now open to us westerners.

    Remarkable photo. I'm amazed that a photographer would take such a stunning photo and not want to receive credit for it! Nevertheless, it is quite gorgeous indeed.

    This is a beautiful place. But it is quite a challenge to walk from the river up the hill. The church and the castle are incredible. This a beautiful city. Wincelas Square and St. James Bridge are worth the time to see. Also, Prague is home to some of the best food in Europe!
