Local Lens: Exploring the Old and New in Prague with @j1rk4

Local Lens: In this series, we let local Instagrammers show you their favorite places to shoot in their cities. Experience Prague through the lens of a local by following @j1rk4, and check out the location pages for Náplavka u Hergetovy Cihelny, Charles Bridge, National Monument on Vitkov, John Lennon Wall, Mare Point and Radotínský Most.

Jirka Kryl (@j1rk4) is from the Czech town of Olomouc, but he attends university in Prague, the Czech Republic's capital and largest city.

"In my opinion, Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There is wonderful architecture—both historic and modern. I’ve lived in Prague for only two years, however I walk everywhere, and love to explore and find photogenic places."

Jirka shared these favorite spots as top sites for any visiting Instagrammer:

"I wouldn’t miss a place like Náplavka u Hergetovy Cihelny, where you can feed the gorgeous swans. And no trip would be complete without seeing the Charles Bridge. If you want a great view of the iconic Zizkov tower, I recommend the National Monument on Vitkov. Of course, the John Lennon Wall is another popular tourist spot.”

And what about places off the beaten path?

"The bridge over the road by Mare Point in the neighborhood of Karlín is worth the trip, as is the absolutely fabulous spot under Radotínský Most.”

Documenting South Africa’s Farewell to Nelson Mandela with @danielberehulak

To view photos and videos from the 10 days of mourning for Nelson Mandela, follow @danielberehulak on Instagram.

Following the news of Nelson Mandela’s death, Australian photojournalist Daniel Berehulak (@danielberehulak) has been sharing scenes from the 10 days of mourning.

From the crowds which gathered to pay respects outside the former South African president’s home in Houghton, Johannesburg, to the stands of the First National Bank (FNB) stadium for the state memorial service, Daniel has been sharing photos while covering the story for the New York Times, choosing moments and outtakes which wouldn’t make the picture desk cut.

Some of the most moving photos from the last 10 days show crowds thronging the pavements along the route of the funeral procession being lead through Pretoria. He said the atmosphere along the route was one of joy—with people celebrating Mandela’s life more than mourning it.

"The mood indeed has been mixed, with people overcome with emotion only shortly after witnessing the cortège driving past, with the reality probably setting in," he said. "Thousands and thousands of people lined up to catch buses in order to pay their respects to Nelson Mandela. The mood was incredibly jovial despite the sombre reality. People want to celebrate his life rather than mourn it. They were certainly marking it by singing and dancing in the streets."

Daniel’s photos have captured a nation in mourning for a leader and the celebration of an outstanding life. “People were paying homage to his incredible life and the impact that he and had on South Africa and what he meant to people across the world.” On Sunday, a traditional burial ceremony took place in Qunu, Mandela’s Eastern Cape home town.

Exploring Middle Earth on Instagram

To see more photos and videos from Hobbiton, explore the Middle Earth location page.

Ever since English author J.R.R. Tolkien first published his fantasy novel, The Hobbit, in 1937, readers around the world have been enchanted by the sprawling landscapes of Middle Earth. Nearly seventy years later in 2001, director Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings film series brought Tolkien’s world to life on the silver screen. With much of the film shot in New Zealand, the country has come to be known as the “Home of Middle Earth.”

Over 250 locations throughout New Zealand were used in the production of the films, taking full advantage of the diversity in the country’s landscape. From expansive fields and lush farmlands to snow-capped mountains, New Zealand’s features opened ample opportunities to make Middle Earth real.

With the release of The Hobbit film series, the sets from Hobbiton—home of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins—have been reconstructed and are open to tourists. Instagrammers from around the world have come to explore and share photos and videos from their time in Tolkien’s world.
