Hradec Kralove

location: 100 km east of Prague
population: 100,000

White Tower is to Hradec what Eiffel Tower is to Paris.

This tower is located on the Big Square.

Big Square segues into much more private Little Square.

Ensconced between the Big and Little Squares is the Klicpera's Theater.

Underneath both squares there is Zizka's Park.

A district known as "Slezske Predmesti" lies on this side of the town.
(the blue building is hotel Alessandria)

If you walk down from the Big Square to the other side, you'll hit the Commerce Bank.

Next you will see the river Labe (Elbe) with the Museum building peeking through the trees.

Here is the Museum in full glory.

The view upstream the Labe river from the bridge directly behind the museum.

Masaryk Square, on the other side of the river, is named after the first president of Czechoslovakia.

He has a statue here, and also in Washington, DC.

The Masaryk Square then narrows into a pedestrian zone.

Ulrich Square, often regarded as the main square.

High school where I spent 4 years learning many useful things.

A hydro power station behind the high school.

A view of the power station from the Labe embankment.

Tesco - the only supermarket inside the city.

The other side of Tesco with local banks.

A peculiar church on the way from Tesco to the railway station.

The railway station, an easy 2 hour ride to Prague from here. In front, the public transportation terminal.

Hotel Cernigov - in front of the train station.

A bus terminal, one block from the train station.
