THE MILLENNIUM GALLERY

Picture Fifty-Two

Strekov Castle, Czech Republic

Andrew standing in the bastion courtyard of Strekov Castle on the outskirts of Ústí nad Labem in the Czech Republic, the town his father was born in.  His father remembers visiting the Castle as a young man and Andrew simply had to visit whilst there himself.

What he found was a tremendous ruin perched high above the Labem (Elbe) River which apparently inspired Wagner to write Tannhauser, which isn't a bad boast!

This picture is a timer shot and was taken on 27th May 2000.
