Picture of the Day – Stained Glass

This is a picture of a stained glass window in St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague.

I had never seen such beautiful stained glass before.

This particular window was designed by the artist Alphonse Mucha, who was a pioneer of the Art Nouveau movement, also known as Jugenstil, based in Prague.

There is also a fantastic round window depicting the creation with a rainbow all around it.

I recommend, if you are in the area, to visit this Cathedral, which is part of the castle complex.

I hope you enjoy this picture.

 

Picture of the day – I hope it inspires you.

This is a picture of the astrological clock in Prague.

If you haven’t been to Prague, I suggest you add it to your list.

It is a beautiful city, the old part and the main centre is quite small and compact so you can get a feel for the place in quite a short space of time. However there is always something to see.

There is a castle, a number of beautiful churches (St Vitus’ Cathedral in the castle area has some of the most beautiful stained glass I have ever seen). Just walking around the city is a cultural delight.

It is popular for people going on Hen nights or stag do’s but it is so much more than a place to get cheap beer.

I hope the picture inspires you to write something (If so please post a link) or Inspires you to visit this fantastic city.
