Hidden Prague: From the Vltava River to Vysehrad Castle (Travel Photo Art #21) (Paperback)
Prague offers truly beautiful discoveries only minutes away from the crowded tourist sites.
Most people who visit Prague limit their experience to the small area bounded by Old Town Square and Prague Castle. Only a block or two away from the main boulevards are quiet cafes and bustling, three-way intersections where residents live and work amid the iconic architecture.
A short tram ride reveals additional treasures like Vysehrad, a historic fort on the banks of the Vltava River. The site is home to the Basilica of St. Peter and St. Paul as well as Prague's oldest rotunda, which dates from the 11th century. From the elevated expanse of Letn Park, visitors can snap unique pictures of Prague Old Town and the Vltava River.
Leave the crowds behind and discover the real Prague with the full-color photos in Hidden Prague: From the Vltava River to Vysehrad Castle (a Travel Photo Art book).
In the Travel Photo Art series, traditional tourism panoramas mix with arthouse aesthetics. These slim, passport sized productions are your passport to new perspectives on famous places. Peer around corners and discover a unique way to interact with monuments and memorials you thought you knew.
This popular series includes titles that mix text with the pictures. Books like Notre Dame Cathedral: Our Lady of Paris, featuring photos taken months before the 2019 fire, become keepsakes associated with a specific site. Titles like Lidice Lives and Terezin and Theresienstadt are deeply meaningful for families touched by the Holocaust.
