Friendly Friday – Balconies

When I was researching the topic for this week’s Friendly Friday Photo Challenge, I realized that all my relevant photos were located in Europe. Except for one! I hope that you can show me some more balconies, or patios, or verandahs from all over the world.

The oldest balconies I spotted were in Germany – in Berlin and Frankfurt and in Italy.

Juliet’s balcony was a popular tourist attraction in Verona.

Where for art thou

I noticed the fashionable balconies, in Italy, have window boxes that are more often filled with greenery or Geraniums.


And I couldn’t possibly exclude balconies found in Scandinavia from this montage, seeing as that region is my first love.

Sweden has a very famous indoor balcony.

Do you know what special purpose it serves?

Norway has some spectacular balconies in Dragon Style

  1. I’m finally done with my balconies and trying out the new WordPress gallery system. If I wish to have captions, and I do, there is no horizontal gallery any more. Still, I like it like this.

    And I like your balcony theme since, as I said, I have never done a balcony compilation. As for yours, I like them all but the Crucial Balcony has the future. 🙂

    1. No such thing as ‘never’, Bushboy. No deadlines here. Funny that you have chosen Spanish balconies. There seems to be a bit of a Spanish thread for this prompt. They are certainly something to see.
