Photographer's Note

Prague Lesser town,view to Vojan Park(Vojanovy sady)
One of the oldest parks in Prague, Vojan Park, was founded around the year of 1300. It was devastated in 1420 but in 17th century it was the garden of the Convent of Barefooted Carmelites. There are two chapels the Chapel of Elijah and a chapel dedicated to St Theresa. By the entrance to the park there is an 18th-century statue of St John Nepomuk by Ignaz Platzer.
Above the park is Prague castle,the largest ancient castle in the world (570 m long, on average 128 m wide, area 7.28 hectares).
Constructed in the 9th century by Prince Bořivoj, the castle transformed itself from a wooden fortress surrounded by earthen bulwarks to the imposing form it has today. Rulers made their own additions so there is a mixture of styles. Prague castle has had four major reconstructions, but it keeps its classical facelift it took on in the 18 century during the reign of Maria Theresa.
The castle has three courtyards and it has always been the seat of Czech rulers as well as the official residence. Allow at least half a day (it does not include time for museum visits) if you want to examine it in depth.( www.prague.cz)
