In Panmunjeom, a military settlement in the demilitarized zone (DMZ) between North and South Korea, in which the end of the Korean War was negotiated from 1951 to 1953, meetings between North and South Korean delegations take place in the "Blue Pavilion". In Seoul you can book sightseeing tours and you have the opportunity to visit the Blue Pavilion, unless there are consultations between North and South. We were lucky.

Leningrad, today's St. Petersburg, is flown by the Neva, which flows from Lake Ladoga into the New Bay of the Baltic Sea. The city is impressive at that time, especially the Hermitage on the Neva, one of the largest and most important art museums in the world. The Musuem also includes the famous Winter Palace. This is a central part of the UNESCO World Heritage listed St. Petersburg city center.

The construction of a new opera house in Oslo had already been discussed for decades, before the first plans for a building made of concrete, marble, glass and wood were published in 1998. The new opera is considered the largest Norwegian cultural project of the post-war period. The building, modeled after a driving iceberg, looks especially in the light of the setting sun.

Hamburg at the blue hour

From the jetties in Hamburg you can reach an excellent photo spot through the Elbe tunnel. From here, the city panorama as well as the yacht harbor and the Elbphilamonie can be perfectly photographed at the blue hour and of course at other times of the day and night. In this photo a long exposure time was realized in order to harmonize the rather strong waves on the Elbe.
