Architecture, history and photography in Nové Město nad Metují, Czech Republic

Jurkovic's Wooden Bridge, Nove Mesto nad Metuji

Those who read my blog regularly or downloaded my free ebook about improving your photography will know that I do not particularly enjoy crowds. I’m also the solely and therefore the biggest supporter of my own theory called “decentralized tourism”. What it means is going not only to places that are notoriously known and infinitely repeated on social media but also get off the beaten path a bit, do some old-school research and explore new locations.

3+1 best photography spots in Valletta, Malta

Valletta, Malta: 3+1 best photography spots

Let’s get this straight – walking around Valletta, Malta’s capital is pretty much like walking through a very big and very colorful open-air museum.

In the land of castles, Rheingau

Another great autumn day, another hiking adventure! This time to Rheingau, Germany. This place is awesome, it’s basically a valley around the river Rhein, packed with wineyards and pretty small villages, and moreover easy to be reached by train from Frankfurt. But what really is spectacular is the number of castles in the region. It’s literally castle plague – every time you lose a castle from your view as you go through, and ‘voilá!’ there’s another one. I arrived to…
