English/česky: Chrám svaté Barbory aka Saint Barbara's Church is a Roman Catholic church in Kutná Hora in Bohemia, the Czech Republic, built in the style of a cathedral. It is one of the most famous Gothic churches in central Europe and it is a UNESCO world heritage site. St Barbara is the patron saint of miners (among others), which was highly appropriate for a town whose wealth was based entirely upon its silver mines. Construction began in 1388, but because work on the church was interrupted several times, it was not completed until 1905. The first architect was probably Johann Parler, son of Peter Parler. Work on the building was interrupted for more than 60 years during the Hussite Wars and when work resumed in 1481, Matěj Rejsek, Benedikt Rejt and Mikuláš Parler, assumed responsibility. The original design was for a much larger church, perhaps twice the size of the present building. Construction, however, depended on the prosperity of the town's silver mines, which became much less productive. So, in 1588, the three-peaked roof had been completed, and a provisional wall was constructed. A little later it was occupied by Jesuits who gradually changed the structure into Baroque style, though parts still remain in Gothic style. The final process of repair and completion took place at the end of the 19th century. I am not a religious person at all, but I have to admit that some structures built by people to worship their gods are simply stunning. #dnescestujem #minveciviczazitku #cestounecestou #fotkukazdejden #medievalworld #manor_n_castle #czechrepublic #europeanarchitecture #fotkyplnekysliku #jecozazit #fotimecesko #castles_oftheworld #castlemypassion #cathedral #map_of_europe #castellidelmondo #kings_villages #castlesofinstagram #gothicchurch #worldheritage #chramsvatebarbory #kutnahora #visitcentralbohemia #kudyznudy #visitczechrepublic #hello_worldpics #beauty_of_czechia #unescoworldheritage #wonderful_places #beautifuldestinations

Sighisoara's Church from the Hill is without a doubt, one of the most representative monuments of the Sighisoara Citadel. Built in several stages between 1345-1525, the church is located at an altitude of 429 meters, on the School Hilltop, dominating the entire citadel. The church features several elements of the Gothic style: windows with broken arch openings, vaults on ogives but also the shape of the choir.

Under the bridge... My tribute to #feckitfriday...have a great weekend 😊👍🏻 Situated beneath a railway bridge, this dark spot offers an ideal setting for Graham Fagen’s captivating neon light work which presents a narrative illuminating a journey of a life and questioning what lies beyond. It is centred on the story of the Roselle, a ship that sailed from the Port of Leith to Kingston, Jamaica in 1786. Robert Burns had booked a passage on the boat, but never sailed. The piece takes its name from a statement by pioneering environmentalist and planner Patrick Geddes, that ‘a city is more than a place in space, it is a drama in time’. It is apt that the work is positioned at the bottom of Jacob’s Ladder, a steep set of steps which link the Old Town – an area of the city Geddes worked to improve in the nineteenth century – and the New Town. A Drama In Time was commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival for the 2016 festival. Unfortunately, when I took the pic the centre piece...a illuminated skeleton didn't work 🤷🏼‍♀️ so double #feckitfriday 😛. #caltonroad #jacobsladderedinburgh #edinburgh #waverleystation #adramaintime #lightgraffiti #thisisedinburgh #edinphoto #auldreekie #bbcbritain #edinburghstory #loves_edinburgh #hiddenedinburgh #ig_edinburgh #visitscotland #bbcscotland #ukpotd #travel_drops #ig_europe #wonderful_destinations #yourscotland #kings_villages #map_of_europe #villages #wow_destinations

“Cărturești Carusel”🧡📕🔎🔭🖌🌷 Bucharest - ROMANIA 🇹🇩 Cărturești Carusel is a bookstore on Lipscani 55 Street in the old town of Bucharest, Romania. It belongs to the Romanian bookstore chain Cărtureşti. The building that currently houses the bookstore was built at the beginning of the 20th century by the Chrissoveloni bankers family. During the first few decades of its existence the building housed the Chrissoveloni Bank headquarters, and afterwards it became a general store. At the end of the 1990s and early 2000s the building fell into decay, up until 2015 when a five year long rehabilitation, strengthening and conversion project was complete. Some sources claim that the bookstore name Cărturești Carusel means "Carousel of Light", but it is not the case. Cărturești does not mean "light". It is the name of the bookstore chain, and probably related to the word cărturar which means "learned man" or "scholar".(From Wikipedia) #carturesticarusel #carturesti #bookstore #tripadvisor #travel_drops #bbc_travel #ig_dynamic #ig_serenity #igpowerclub #creartmood #loves_europe #loves_united_europe #kings_villages #ir_ig #ig_livorno_ #ig_fotografdiyari #ig_skysun #igs_europe #igs_world #ig_fotograflar #igersmood #photometre #solotravel #ig_bucharest #ig_romania #iphone8plus #loves_bucharest #loves_romania #gezi
