Secret staircases, heart-shaped islands, epic icebergs and fairy-tale castles.

Scrolling through photographer Peter Rajkai’s Instagram feed is a journey of discovery, a photographic tour of some of the world’s most incredible landscapes and architectural treasures.

And always captured in mesmerising style – there’s a reason he has over 90,000 Instagram followers.

Peter, from the town of Budaors in Hungary, is particularly drawn to the geometric shapes and spiral forms of staircases, but is keen not to pigeon-hole himself.

He says: ‘Most photographers are interested in only one or two genres, but my plan is to make a really excellent photo in almost every category.’

Here we present 20 of Peter’s top shots, taken in the likes of Greenland, Hungary, Croatia and the UK.

This stunning drone shot shows one of the sources of Croatia’s 62-mile-long Cetina river – a breathtaking karst spring near the tiny village of Cetina near the Dinara mountain range known as ‘the eye of the earth’. This image garnered over 23,000 likes when Peter posted it to Instagram 


LEFT: It’s hard not to fall in love with this beautiful shot, which shows privately owned Galesnjak, a rare naturally occurring heart-shaped island in the Adriatic’s Pasman Canal. There isn’t much on the island, apparently, except some wild plants and a colony of rabbits. RIGHT: Peter reveals on Instagram that he got up at 4.30am so he could get a shot of this waterfall in Croatia’s Krka National Park before the crowds arrived. And the effort paid off. He adds: ‘[It’s] the most beautiful waterfall I’ve ever seen (and yes, I’ve already been in Iceland)’
