Local Lens: Capturing Lines and Angles in Prague with @prazakj

Local Lens: In this series, we let local Instagrammers show you their favorite places to shoot in their city. Experience Prague through the lens of a local by following @prazakj and explore some of his favorite locations through the links below.

"I’m fascinated by architecture and landscape," says Jan Pražák (@prazakj), who calls Prague home but travels often to all corners of the Czech Republic.

"I really enjoy the minimalist architecture, and Prague is filled with shapes and curves," says Jan. "I didn’t study architecture—I just look for forms I like."

For those visiting Prague and looking for unique architecture to shoot, Jan recommends running or skating along the scenic Vltava River. “From the river, you can see Danube House, Nile House, Amazon Court and Main Point.” For more adventurous folks willing to walk a little further, Jan recommends Prague Castle and nearby Stromovka Park.

"Prague is full of pretty places and I have little space to tell you about them, so just come and visit! My best tip for photo taking is to go out when the sun is rising or one hour before it goes down. That’s the best light for making shots."
