"Gesamtkunstwerk" Prospect by King_Golo

Prospect Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 9 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 discovery. 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, softly swaying water. Hardly any sound can be heard, except for the chiming of a little bell in one of the harbour's buoys. Prospect is definitely worth a visit!

Have a look at my Prospect tip and travelogue, virtually visit other nice places on Nova Scotia like Cape Breton Highlands NP, Digby or Lunenburg - or continue your random tour through my pages here!
