Keywords Click a term to view the records with the same keyword
This object has the following keywords:
  • architecture
  • Bohemian - Refers to the culture of the historical region, kingdom, and later administrative district of Bohemia. Often used as a synonym of 'Czech.' Bohemia ceased to be an autonomous administrative district in 1949, and in 1993 formed part of the modern Czech Republic. There is no cultural difference implied in the terms 'Czech' and 'Bohemian,' the distinction is more precisely a chronologic or historical one.
  • castles - Buildings or groups of buildings intended primarily to serve as a fortified residence of a prince or nobleman.
  • etchings - Prints made from an etched printing plate, which is a metal plate on which a design is made by coating the plate with an acid-resistant substance, creating a design in the coating, and then exposing the plate to acid, which etches the plate where the metal is exposed. For designs incised directly into a copper plate using a burin or graver, use "engravings (prints)."
  • islands - Landforms smaller than a continent, completely surrounded by water at high water. Islands appear in oceans, seas, lakes, or rivers.
  • landscapes
  • shores - Strips of land bordering large bodies of water; an example is area of land between the lowest low-water spring tide and the highest point of storm waves.
