Kardamili (Kardamyli)

Kardamili (sometimes written as Kardamyli, Greek καρδαμυλη) is a small village in the Mani region south of Kalamata. Kardamili is very recommendable for a visit or vacation. You can expect good food and a relaxing athmosphere.

Prague at Night

In 2009 I visited Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic and took some nice pictures. This beautiful city of Prague is certainly worth a visit. There is a lot to see and the city has a nice flair. In my Gallery of Prague you can mainly find some photographs taken during the blue hour and the beginning of the night. For example, the Old City Square, Tyn Cathedral, the Old Townhall, Charles Bridge and much more.

Watermill Baalsbrugge at Night

Here you can see some pictures of the Baalsbruggermolen in Kerkrade I took during the blue hour and at night. This mill is located along the river the Worm, a small river at the border between the Netherlands (Kerkrade / Haanrade) and Germany (Herzogenrath / Merkstein). This watermill was owned by the Abbey Rolduc until the beginning of the 19th century (here some pictures taken at the Abbey Rolduc).
