Photographer's Note

This is one of my favourite places in the town where I was born - Hradec Králové.

The colourful building is a hydro power station built on the so called "Humming Weir" and the bridge which you can see in the picture is called the same by local people.

The art nouveau building was designed by František Sandler, built in 1910. The whole complex of the power-station was pronounced a national technical monument, there is an exhibition on renewable resources inside.
