POTD: Prague Spires

Photo of the Day: Prague Spires

The next big batch of photos of the day will be from a recent trip to one of my favourite cities, Prague. It’s often dubbed the city of a hundred spires for the huge number of gothic towers that rise above the red roofs to pierce the sky.

Visitors are constantly drawn up spiral stairways or surrounding hills to gaze down at the city and across the hundreds of spires shooting upwards.

Each new tower rewards the climb with a new vantage on Prague’s endless architectural wonders. In this shot, the principle spires on display include (clockwise, from top left) the Tyn Church, the Powder Tower, the Old Town Hall, and one of the Charles Bridge Guard Towers, most of which can be ascended by the public (all except the Tyn Church).
