Cathedral Door

Cathedral Door, St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague

This is the inscription on the door of St Vitus’ Cathedral in Prague. Apologies for colourising the image, but the original was slightly flat and grey. I was messing around with filters and techniques in GIMP and this was the end result.

Whatever. I like it.

I remember that our anti-communist tour guide relayed some shocking details about the Russian occupation in hushed tones just outside the door. Sometimes as a tourist, you go along to these places and soak up the atmosphere and the architecture and the people. But it takes a native to explain that Prague wasn’t always a safe place for weekend vacations.
