"Gesamtkunstwerk" Prospect by King_Golo

Prospect Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 8 photos

Prospect is pretty close to a gesamtkunstwerk, a term which refers to something that is pure art (at least in its literal meaning). This little Nova Scotian village, situated approximately 45 minutes away from Halifax, is a true gem. Stretching out on several small headlands the village's beauty is reflected on the waters of the coves. You see the tiny wooden houses mirrored in clear blue water that softly sways. No sound is to be heard, except maybe the chiming of a little bell in one of the harbour's buoys. Prospect is definitely worth a visit - and best before masses of tourists arrive as in nearby Peggy's Cove!
