The #NusleBridge towers over the houses in the Nusle Valley. After almost a century of speculation, design competitions and planning, it finally opened in February 1973. It's a stark piece of #Communist era design, with the highway traveling above and Prague's #Metro C line carried underneath.

The Last Judgement, as seen on the timpanum over the door of the Basilica of Ss. Peter and Paul in Vysehrad. Notice the weeping sinners (right) being tormented by demons and dragons, while on the other side the virtuous are welcomed to their eternal reward. In the centre, stands the Archangel Michael, bearing a flaming sword - he's in charge of the sorting - while the four trumpets blast out over his head to announce the coming of the apocalypse. This is Christian art at its most literal.
