Tokyo Glimpses 2017

Tokyo Glimpses 2017

As I did not had enough clips of tokyo to make a video, I thought not to do it. However, my son wanted some memories of that trip and asked me to make a short film.
I took my footages and tried a different look and here it is. Not a great film, but it help me to improve.
Hope you like it.

A Glass of Prague. Timelapse & Hyperlapse. Czech Republic

A Glass of Prague. Timelapse & Hyperlapse. Czech Republic

Prague, City of a Hundred Spires, a UNESCO monument and one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Timelapse & Edit by Kirill Neiezhmakov e-mail:
Music: piano cinematic trailer

The Old Town Hall with the famous Prague Astronomical Clock. The winding lanes of the Jewish Quarter, which you know from the novels of Franz Kafka, steeped in the legend of the Golem. Cafes enticing you to come and have a seat, boutiques and sight-seeing cruises on the Vltava. The Gothic Charles Bridge and Church of St. Nicholas in the Lesser Town, the most beautiful Baroque church in Prague. The Palace Gardens set away from the bustle of the city, Petřín with a lookout tower reminiscent of a small Eiffel Tower and Prague Castle … Each of Prague’s districts has its own characteristic atmosphere and unique charm. Prague presents itself to you as a changeable city, which likes to alternate styles: it is romantic and successful, ancient and modern, but above all it is a city that is cosmopolitan through and through, and is used to welcoming foreigners. It is time to get acquainted.

Prague (Praha in Czech) was once the seat of a mighty empire, the ancient capital of Charles IV’s Bohemian Kingdom. The city has played a pivotal role in Central Europe since the Middle Ages.
The epic history of Prague has produced a beautiful city, full of stunning buildings and majestic squares.
Tourism has driven the regeneration of Prague, transforming run down buildings into fine restaurants, vibrant bars and stylish hotels.
Prague Tourism Fact: In 1992 the historical centre of Prague, all 866 hectares, was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.

Prague has a compact city centre. From Wenceslas Square on one side to Prague Castle on the other is just a 25-30 minutes stroll (walking via the Old Town, across Charles Bridge and through the Lesser Town).
With many of the finest areas also pedestrianised, the city is effectively an open air museum, and the sights & attractions therefore are best explored on foot.
Opera and classical concerts are a definite highlight of Prague, with performances held all year round in magnificent opera houses and a range of stunning concert halls and historic churches.
The black light theatre shows are also unique.

Prague restaurants enjoy a reputation for serving good, often excellent cuisine, and many offer the opportunity to dine in lovely settings; these range from intimate cellar restaurants to rooftop restaurants with views over the city.
For refreshment at any time of the day, the world famous Czech beer is deeply embedded in the national physique and is enthusiastically consumed in cafés and bars all over the city; the Czechs are the largest consumers of beer per capita in the world!
Another well-known export of the Czech Republic is Bohemia Crystal. Visitors can purchase the finest glass products in shops in Prague or go on a tour to a glass factory, such as to Moser Glass, to see it being made.

Praha je nejen kouzelným městem mostů, chrámů, pozlacených věží a kopulí kostelů, které se zhlížejí již více než deset století v hladině řeky Vltavy,ale i moderní metropolí.
Praha je také městem různých architektonických stylů a metropolí plnou romantických uliček či stavitelských pokladů v historickém centru.
Avšak Praha je také městem zeleně. Například na svazích pod Pražským hradem je dodnes patrná snaha barokního stavitelství velkoryse spojovat budování paláců se zřizováním zahrad plných pavilonů, besídek a altánů.
Tvář Prahy dokresluje patnáct velkých mostů. Čtrnáct z nich se klene přes řeku Vltavu, Nuselský most je doširoka rozkročen přes Nuselské údolí.
V české metropoli se nachází i nebývalé množství divadel, koncertních sálů, výstavních prostor, muzeí a galerií.
Ne nadarmo se říká, že Praha je tak různorodá, jak si jen člověk může přát. A každému příchozímu ukáže jednu ze svých kouzelných tváři.
