Photographer's Note

This another blue hour shot from Prague, the equestrian statue of St. Wenceslas, patron saint of Bohemia, in the Wenceslas Square. The building in the background is the National Museum. The St. Wenceslas statue is one of the landmarks of the square. Czech sculptor Josef Václav Myslbek (1840-1922) made the statue. It is his most famous work and it took him more than 20 years to finish. It was ready in 1912. At the base the statue there are four other Czech patron saints, St. Ludmila, Saint Agnes of Bohemia, Saint Prokop, and Saint Adalbert of Prague.
