    One of the main streets cutting through the centre of Olomouc. I liked the atmosphere of the fairly narrow streets with their cobbled stones and slightly old-fashioned shops.

    Just a couple of hundred meters from the Upper Square of Olomouc is the Lower Square, Dolní náměstí. It has its own plague column, built at the same time as the Holy Trinity column. This is a so called Marian column, dedicated to the Virgin Mary (who is placed on the top).

    I read somewhere that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart stayed in a house in this square on a visit to Olomouc, but I don't know if it was any of the houses seen here.

    A colleague of mine, a street-photographer whom I met in the central square, the Rynok, of Lviv. My camera is smaller and I don't carry a tripod, but I had probably brought a small folded umbrella since the day wasn't as sunny as it seems here.

    I was sitting in a café just next to this statue. I was watching him carefully from just a few metres, very impressed by his total concentration. He didn't seem to move an inch even when a woman had a photo taken while holding her arm around his shoulder. After I had finished my coffee I walked up to him, slightly suspicious, and realized that...ooops!...he was not alive. This was a real, old-fashioned statue, supposed to look like the writer and journalist Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, born in Lviv (then known as Lemberg) in 1836. His sexual preferences gave rise to the word "masochism". You can find out more about that on the net.

    Although the castle is relatively uninteresting, the old central part of Trenčín is a very pleasant area with well maintained beautiful buildings and many restaurants and cafés.

    A view of Trenčín from the castle. I took the main photo from the bridge to the left after I had crossed the river.

    The central part of Bratislava. The white tower near the centre of the picture is St. Michael's Tower, where I took my last photo.

    I mainly deleted the houses, except for one, for a more concentrated view of the slow movement from yellowish to blueish tones. I also darkened the photo slightly.
