Snapshots: Hue, Vietnam’s imperial city

From Hue (or Huế, as it’s written in Vietnamese) reigned the emperors of the Nguyen Dynasty in Vietnam. The city was also the capital of the country until 1945. These two facts together make for a glorious city, with its citadel and forbidden Purple City a beautiful physical incarnation of the country’s history. Huế’s surroundings are dotted with tombs of past emperors, all elaborate monuments built early into their reigns. Huế’s a good spot for history buffs and photographers into colours and lines (that’s me).
