The Prague astronomical clock, or Prague orloj (Czech: Pražský orloj [praʃskiː orloj]), is a medieval astronomical clock located in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still working.

A view from Prague Castle looking towards the Old Town.

A recent trip to Prague; I was blessed with -15C temperatures, snow and lots of tame swans. I like photos of animals to be as natural and spontaneous as possible, which is preciesly why I didn't balance pieces of bread in my lens hood to encourage the swans to come closer.

 

Camera settings: f4, 1/1000sec, ISO100, shot handheld at 24mm.

 

Processing was done using Lightroom and Photoshop. Sadly, the original picture had a completely wonky horizon; when I straightened this it cropped a lot of the water from the bottom right. I fixed this by using Photoshop's content-aware fill procedure. Sharp eyes will notice the water looks a little unnatural in the bottom-right, but given that it only took a few clicks I'm very impressed with Photoshop. I used Lightroom to crop to 16:10, increase the blue and orange channels to make the beak and sky stand out a little, and increased the clarity to bring out some of the detail.

 

To get to this location head to Charles Bridge, in Prague. It’s one of the main landmarks and very easy to find. Head over to the west side of the bridge (away from the main town and towards the castle). When you get to the end of the bridge take a right turn (before the small underpass) and head down some steps next to a pub. Follow the path and stay on the path that runs parallel to the river (the river will be out of sight behind buildings) and keep going for about 3 minutes until you see an opening on the right with a tree where you can walk down and feed the swans. If you walk past a statue of two well-endowed people urinating then you’re on the right track.

 

This area is actually visible from Charles Bridge, so take a look from there to get your bearings. All in all, quite easy to find.

Prague Castle "Hradcany" dating from the 9th century (870) is where Czech kings, Holy Roman Emperors, and the presidents of the Czech Republic have had their offices. It is the biggest castle in the world, measuring more than half kilometer in length and an average of about 130 meters wide.

Just like Rome, Prague is situated on the hilly aria with beautiful river Vltava (Moldau) tuning in betwen. Not everything is paved in Prague, there are huge patches reserved just for nature what makes all even more magical. Here view on the river Střelecký island with the historic part of city behind.

Prague, probably the most beautiful capital in Europe! Prague is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic, the 14th largest city in the European Union. Situated in the north-west of the country on the Vltava river, the city is home to about 1.3 million people. Prague is home to a number of famous cultural attractions, many of which survived the violence and destruction of 20th-century Europe. The pictures were taken in May 2017.
