Church spires in Slovakia are often shaped like this and are topped by the traditional double cross. However, this is on the roof of a hotel at Bojnice Spa.
very interesting! I like the gray clouds as a background, it added to the sense of mystery, romance.

The sky is brooding and beautiful and so defines the cross on this intricate steeple. Love your pictures Michael.

Do you think this hotel was a religious building before ? Colors are very nice : a dark sky, and a light spire…
