Germany

Berlin

 

 

 

most visitors arrive between May and September when the weather is the most reliable

From November to early March, skies tend to be gloomy and the mercury often drops below freezing.

July and August are the warmest times, though usually not chokingly hot. The nicest months are September and October, which deliver the added bonus of autumn foliage. May and June, when the trees are in bloom and the outdoor cafe season kicks off, are popular months too, though rain is more likely at this time

Dresden – Buildings of Renaissance and Baroque style are everywhere

Cresky krumlov

Krumlov – well-preserved Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. The Český Krumlov Castle, built in the 13th century, is the second largest castle complex in Czech Republic after Prague castle. The Vltava River snakes through the town, making the inner historical center an island unto itself.

-Český Krumlov is a jumble of 750 years of architectural design

The Český Krumlov castle is considered to be the second largest castle complex in Central Europe (next to the Prague Castle).

 

Prague Castle

       The reasons are very simple: It’s not just an old castle but the best place to get a spectacular view of the entire city,

       This is the largest castle complex in the world, and it takes at least half a day to go through the buildings and discover such treasures as the crown jewels, art collections, and priceless manuscripts, books, and historical documents

       To get there, take the scenic route through the picturesque Mala Strana district, which dates back to the mid-13th  century. Then cross Hradcany Square and enter the castle via ornate Matyas Gate. That vantage point guarantees the best view of the city. The offices of the president of the Czech Republic are located in the next two blocks of the complex’s buildings. Just past there you will end up directly in front of St. Vitus’s Cathedral, the largest church in Prague and the final resting place of the remains of patron saints, sovereigns, noblemen, and archbishops.

布拉格的木偶戲(Puppetry)、十分出名,賣木偶的店子也有很多,木偶的大細差異很大

中世紀建築的美麗城市布拉格﹔首先我們來到了位於伏爾塔瓦河左岸城堡區的舊皇宮

曾經是很貧窮的小巷,經過規劃、翻修後,竟然變成有著繽紛色彩、充滿藝術感的巷道,知名的文學作家卡夫卡也曾在黃金小巷22號寫作、居住過,而現在的黃金小巷則變成了販賣紀念品的小巷了

查理大橋是跨越伏爾塔瓦河、連接城堡區及舊城區、白天及夜晚各有不同風情很藝術的一座橋梁,橋的兩端各有一座橋塔,橋梁兩側則豎立了許多的聖者雕像,其中最受矚目的則是頭上有金星環的名為聖約翰.內波穆克雕像,相信去過查理大橋的人一定都不會錯過觸摸象徵帶來好運、在雕像下兩側的浮雕,我們也留下了一張張觸摸浮雕的相片。在橋上更有街頭藝術家的現場演奏、手工飾品、繪畫、操縱木偶的演出..等等包羅萬象,不愧為最有人氣的橋梁..

 

    

      溫泉小鎮卡羅維瓦利..            櫥窗裡販賣著啜飲溫泉水的杯子

 

     儘管溫泉在歐洲是少見的,一早來到的捷克第二站卡羅維瓦利,它卻是以溫泉馳名的小鎮,據說在中世紀時期就是王公貴族最喜歡的溫泉療養地,此地溫泉不僅可以浸泡更可以飲用,這個位於山谷的小鎮,它不但擁有優美的景色、華麗的建築、更有歷史悠久的古老溫泉,現在的卡羅維瓦利儼然成為遊客雲集的觀光小鎮了..

Cresky

美得像幅畫的小鎮,伏爾塔瓦河彎曲的弧線將小鎮跟山陵一分為二,紅瓦屋頂的美麗建築跟綠色的樹林再加上伏爾塔瓦河,構成了一幅很協調的風景畫;無論往哪個方向看,都會讓人有驚艷的感覺..

     走回舊城區沿途有石版街道、賣紀念品的商家、更有許許多多各種的房宅..等,舊城中心的市政廣場中央也豎立了一根黑死病的紀念柱,

匈牙利的物價算是今次到東歐數國中最便宜,刺繡品如手帕及衣服均是價廉物美

 

橫跨多瑙河連接布達和佩斯交通的橋梁多達8座,我們經過的鏈橋是應該是最有名的了,主要是它的造型像鎖鏈,兩端都有獅子守護著的一座橋梁。

     我們的第一站是佩斯區(pest)的市民公園,這個佔地約一平方公里的公園,主要還是布達佩斯市民的休憩場所﹔公園內有博物館、植物園、公共溫泉浴室還有融合巴洛克、哥德式..等各種風格建築的城堡,是一座複合式的公園,滿地落葉是公園給我最深的印象了。

     來到共和國大道盡頭的英雄廣場,中央是一座千年紀念碑,高約36公尺,頂端豎立著天使雕像,下方有7個騎馬雕像,環抱廣場的半圓形列柱間有匈牙利國王及民族英雄的雕像;英雄廣場主要是舉行國家慶典的重要場所喔,由於自始至終都是陰天,因此照片感覺很冬天吧!!

     來到位於布達區(buda)的漁夫堡時天色已經暗了,沒想到燈光投射下的漁夫堡更美,這座新羅馬風格建築的城堡形狀十分特別,所有的尖塔堡樓由廊道相互連接,彷彿童話中的城堡般浪漫..,在廊道上更能欣賞多瑙河的夜景,難怪即使是夜晚,仍然見到絡繹不絕的遊客來訪..
