Photographer's Note

"High Gothic castle founded in 1348, which has a unique position among Czech castles. It was built by Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV as a place for safekeeping of the royal treasures, especially Charles's collection of holy relics and the coronation jewels of the Roman Empire."

Also the village under the castle is nice and have historical atmosphere. The simpliest way to get there is by train from Prague.
PP: sharpness and saturation
