This post is to show some photos of the route to Prague Castle. This route goes by the long old stone stairs with a high brick wall. This looks magical! Especially at night and when there are no people. Starting to believe in magic, fairytales and mystic things.
Here is how it looks when you go up.
Stairs To Prague Castle
And this is the image from the half-way to the top. This one was made using my Helios 44M lens. I believe the sharpness of this lens is the best although it is the old lens.
Church of Our Lady before Týn (Kostel Matky Boží před Týnem) – is the main church of the Old Town of Prague on the Old Town Square. The construction of this church in its present look was started in 14th century and fully completed in the beginning of the 16th century. The church is built in Gothic style. The height of the towers is 80 meters.

Walking by streets of night Prague during the last hours of our trip to Prague we visited a modern landmark of this old city – the Dancing house (Tančící dům). This building has a non-traditional style.. the style is Deconstructivism. Its suppose to use non-rectilinear shapes which appear to distort and dislocate elements of architecture. This is very obvious if you look at this building :)
Another name of this building is Fred and Ginger named after the names of American dancers – Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. You may find that the house is similar to a dancing pair.
The design of the Dancing house was approved in 1992 and the construction was completed in 1996. The architect designed it were Vlado Milunić and Frank Gehry. The project was supervised by the Czech President, Václav Havel. He was living some time near the empty place, remained after American bombing of 1945, where the building is today.
