Salah and Pictures

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Asalam Aleikum Warahmatulahi wabarakathu!!
I have a question regarding praying in a house with images, because we went on a vacation to a country and we rented the house and when we arrived it was fajr time but I wasn’t sure if I can pray in a house with christianic images. When I will be praying I will be facing the opposite direction so is it allowed to pray or should I remove them or at least cover them?

الجواب وبالله التوفيق

If the pictures are in the same direction as qibla, it is better to move away and pray or at least cover the pictures.
