Photographer's Note

Here you can see the 20th century neo-gothic towers of the 14th century Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul in the Czech city of Brno. The cathedral is situated on a hill in an area of narrow streets, so it is almost necessary to find another distant hill to take a photo showing the entire building. I took this photo after leaving the church and going downhill. I liked the green diagonal with a viewing platform and the tall spires seemingly reaching for the sky.

Like most other medieval European cathedrals this one has been rebuilt a number of times. In this particular case one reason was, as often has been the case in this part of Europe, that it was destroyed by Swedish troops in the 17th century.

Here is a larger version.

Two other photos showing mainly architecture in Brno can be seen as workshops.

Workshop #1.

Workshop #2.
