Charles Bridge crosses the Vltava River in Prague, capital city of Czech Republic.

The bridge was built in 1357, and finished in 15th Century. Until 1841 it was the only bridge that connected the Old City with the surrounding area. The bridge is over 500 meters in length and 10 meters in width.

In 1992, UNESCO inscribed the entire Old City of Prague into the Wolrd Heritage Listings. Charles Bridge is among the many structures and buildings to be placed under the protection of this movement.

    You are a freak man. AMAZING! The tones are wonderful. Always love me a sweet bit of sepia. The textures is phenomenal. It screams old Prague. Well done!

  • Haha, thanks heaps Matt, coming from you that means a lot mate! I’ve been leaving this one for a while now, couldn’t work out tones and textures for ages. Great to know it’s so well received. Really appreciate it mate :)
