History Of Vysherad Garden
In the ancient times, there were no trees at Vyšehrad, only on the outside the area was encircled by woods. After the Hussite Wars, vineyards, gardens and fields were established here. The 18th century and the first half of the 19th century brought no green to Vyšehrad. The first reference to some planted trees only dates back to 1841, when an alley of locust trees was planted by the path to Tábor, which today connects all the Vyšehrad gates. The green vegetation of the time-honoured Vyšehrad was mostly established during the 19th century, and largely consists of two originally private parks – Karlach Gardens and Štulc Gardens, two private gardens – the New Provost’s Garden and the New Deanery Garden, and then the Park under the Ramparts (Pod hradbami) and the Vyšehrad cemetery (www.prague.eu)
Towering above the square, and the whole of Malá Strana, is the church of sv Mikuláš or St Nicholas

Magnificent Baroque building in the city, and one of the last great structures to be built on the left bank, begun in 1702. This was the most prestigious commission of Christoph Dientzenhofer, a German immigrant from a dynasty of Bavarian architects, and is, without doubt, his finest work. For the Jesuits, who were already ensconced in the adjoining college, it was their most ambitious project yet in Bohemia, and the ultimate symbol of their stranglehold on the country.
Getting your picture taken is an exciting event whether you’re doing it alone or with your family. However, there is nothing worse than having your photo taken and then being disappointed when you see the end result because it is clear that you wore the wrong outfit. There are several things you can do with regards to clothes you wear to your photo shoot so that you can be sure that you will be happy with the results.
Choose Clothes You Feel Good In
Select an outfit that makes you want to smile. If you wear something that you feel ambivalent about or that you hate–maybe because someone asked you to wear it–you aren’t going to be happy.
Don’t Fully Match Up Your Outfits
One of the worst things you can do with a family photograph is have everyone wearing the same colors and fabrics. This can make the photograph look overdone, and inevitably someone is going to wind up looking less than stellar and maybe even dowdy. Instead choose colors that compliment each other; you’ll be far happier with the photograph.
Choose a Style
Group photo shoots can be great, especially when everyone is on the same page. It’s important with group shoots for the group to choose a particular style such as casual or dressy. That way you don’t have someone show up with a dressy outfit, someone else with a casual outfit and someone else with a contemporary outfit. If this does happen it can throw off the balance of the photo.
Consider Using Props
Props are nice whether you’re having your photo taken alone or with a group. Props can help you to get different looks for different photos. A hat or a piece of jewelry might work with a dressy outfit, or a sports team may want to have sports equipment in the photo. Props can help to define your personality.
Keep Your Destination in Mind
Destination actually plays a bigger part than you might think when choosing clothes for your photo shoot. For example, if the photo shoot is taking place at work and you work for a Fortune 500 company, you would want to wear a suit. However, if the photo shoot is taking place at your college you could choose something more casual, such as a nice pair of pants and top for women and dress shirts for guys.
Avoid Busy Patterns
Too many busy patterns in a photograph can cause problems with the end result. However, if you balance out your patterns with solids, this will help keep your photo from looking outdated in a few months. Fashions change overnight and sticking to classic solids and patterns will ensure your photographs don’t end up looking outdated in a short amount of time.

The bridge connects the Prague districts Holešovice and the Old Town (Staré Město). Construction materials are stone (pillars) and iron (arches). Up to 1961 the roadway was made of wood – a hard species named Jarrah from Australia. The roadway got very slippery during rains.
Bridge architects were Jan Koula and Jiří Soukup. Art Nouveau style sculptures (including four put on 17.5-m-high pylons) were created by sculptors Klusáček, Wurzel, Popp and Amort.
