Brno, Czech Republic

Posted by
Michael Skorulski (Toronto, Canada) on 24 February 2018 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

A beautiful city and well worth a visit. Some of my past and future postings were taken here.

To snap this image, I climbed a dark winding stone and wooden staircase 84 meters up to the top of the bell tower of the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul (dating from the 11th century). I'm not a great fan of heights and my discomfort was further enhanced on the way down by the sudden gong of the giant bell to mark the half hour.

A beautiful view of the city! I love the architecture of these houses and the tower on the left. It reminds me of Praha, that I liked so much!

Tired legs, little ear pain ... okay but a beautiful view and a superb photo as a result.

@Willem: Thank you, Willem. I enjoyed your comment.

franz from Baden, Austria

The result - this pretty overlook - was well worth the trouble - long climb, loud noises!
Though Brno is only a two hours' drive from where I live, I've never been there. I guess I must change that ... ;-)
