My random, desktop image of the day comes from five summers ago.

Interior Ceiling of Prague’s Spanish Synagogue

The Spanish Synagogue is the most recent synagogue in the Prague Jewish Town.

I saw a photo of this before going back to Prague and knew I had to see it. It’s even more amazing in person.

I was initially put off by the long line to buy tickets. Turns out, you don’t need a ticket unless you want a tour. So just walk past the line and on in to avoid the wait and to keep 500 CZK in your pocket.

Kutná Hora

Kutná Hora is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is a great day trip from Prague.

House in the Carlsberg Brewery neighborhood

valby carlsberg denmark house

After Niels Bohr won the Nobel Prize in 1922, the Carlsberg Brewery gave him a gift. The gift was a house located near the brewery with a direct pipeline to the brewery so that Bohr had free beer on tap whenever he wanted.

This house probably wasn’t Bohr’s house, but it is in that neighborhood. There are some amazing houses in this neighborhood (between the Carlsberg and Valby Stations on the north side of the tracks). I rode my bike through this neighborhood at least once a day this past summer as my apartment was next to this location.

Administration building interior @ University of Copenhagen

University of Copenhagen

As mentioned previously, the private tour of the campus of the University of Copenhagen was rather special.

The building pictured today was the home of the Zoological Museum from 1870 until 1967. Since then it has been an administration building for the university. If you look closely you can see some of the sculptures that have been part of the architecture for 150 years.

I’ll post more photos of this beautiful place (especially since the public is no longer allowed to enter) soon. Here is what it looked like in 1868 before opening.
