Prague Gardens

While in Prague a couple of weeks ago, my wife and I explored the Prague Castle. However, before we toured the castle we took some time to visit the gardens outside the castle. There were blooms everywhere! 

The first image you see below you may have seen on my personal FaceBook page. After looking at it I thought it might be a good candidate for Fractalius treatment. I have not played with Fractalius for a while but think I like the result, seen in the second image below.

The Royal Gardens are historically the most valuable of all the castle gardens. Founded in 1534 by Ferdinand I. Habsburg, they were inspired by Italian designs; the current form of the garden, however, follows the English adaptation of the 19th century. One of its greatest treasures is the Singing Fountain, one of the most beautiful fountains in Renaissance Europe. The southern gardens (Paradise, Ramparts and Hartig Gardens) spreading along the southern facade of the Prague Castle offer striking views of the Lesser Quarter, Old Town and nearby Petřín.
