Last year in summer during our family vacation I got to spend one day in Prague. Even though I’ve spent most of first 20 years in Hegyeshalom, my home town, close to the Hungarian and Czech Republic border, I somehow have never before visited this city…

I was lucky enough to spend the night at the Hotel Salvator that I highly recommend. The regular rooms are, well, let’s just say ‘economy’ level, but are very good sized, have en suite bathroom, and with the free WiFi you definitely get the juxtaposition of the Mid East European feeling from the 80’s and today’s high-tech. 🙂 A delicious and filling buffet-style breakfast is included in the price which you get to enjoy in the beautiful enclosed court yard, if you like. But the best thing — or should I say, bestest 🙂 — about this hotel is that it’s only in a 10 minute walking distance from the Old Town Square. Perfect! 🙂

Since I only had 1 day to work with, I woke up at 4am and hit the town. Went back to the hotel for a lunch break only. I had a Canon xTi with a kit zoom lens in my “pocket”. I decided I definitely have to see the Old Town with the Orloj on the Old Town Square, the Karluv Most (Charles Bridge) and Mala Strana (Lesser Town), and if I have time I should stroll some in the Jewish Town and around the Castle. Of course I ended up running out of time and energy for that. 😀

Long story short, because of a request I got recently that included one of my photos from Prague I reached back to those photos and decided to play with them. Some are left almost untouched, some I turned into monochromatic, others I tweaked until they got almost surreal. They’ve filled me with the same sunshine inside that I’ve felt while being there. Now, I can’t wait to go back again! 🙂

Enjoy the photos. 🙂
