Empty Streets on a Summer Night
Location: Stockholm, Sweden
Date Taken: 23 Jun 2017
Camera: Nikon D7500

In the middle of Gamla Stan is Stortorget, the oldest square in Stockholm. Stortorget is the central point from which runs Köpmangatan, the oldest street in Stockholm, which was mentioned as early as the 14th century.
By the way, this photo was taken at 2:27AM, and notice how light the sky is! It was one of the shortest nights of the year, when the sun went below the horizon just for five hours.

Green Valley
Location: Mangup, Crimea, Ukraine
Date Taken: 25 Jun 2011
Camera: Nikon D60

View from the top of Mangup plateau. Mangup Kale was a medieval fortified town in the Bakhchysarai district of Crimea. The historical name is Baba-Dag, which means 'Father-Mountain' in Crimean Tatar language. It was the capital of the Principality of Theodoro (Crimean Gothia), and later the Turkish fortress. It is located on the top of the mountain, towering above the level of the surrounding valleys at 250 m (at 583 m above sea level) and forming a plateau with an area of about 90 ha.

Above the Streets of Prague
Location: Prague, Czech Republic
Date Taken: 22 May 2017
Camera: Nikon D5000

This photo was taken from the Powder Tower. It is one of the original 13 city gates in the Old Town of Prague. Its construction began in 1475, and while the tower was being built, it was called the New Tower. It was intended to be an attractive entrance into the city, instead of a defensive tower. In the 17th century it was used to store gunpowder, hence the name Powder Tower or Powder Gate.

City Highlights
Location: Olomouc, Czech Republic
Date Taken: 16 May 2017
Camera: Nikon D5000

The Holy Trinity Column was built after the plague swept through Olomouc between 1713 and 1715. Although the city already had one plague column, the citizens thought it was not spectacular enough. This column, which was included in the UNESCO monument list due to its historical and artistic value, is the largest free-standing Baroque sculpture in Central Europe. It is so large that there is even a small chapel hidden in its bowels.

Tower on the Rock
Location: Frýdštejn, Czech Republic
Date Taken: 15 May 2015
Camera: Nikon D60

The preserved ruin of a rock castle rises above the valley of the Jizera River. The typical watch tower is a beautiful dominant feature of the Maloskalsko area. The castle was in part carved in the rock and the limited space made the builders create a structure consisting of several storeys. The defence was provided by the bulwark in which a large round tower was incorporated.
