Hello fellow Steemians,

I hope you are all having a great day! :) As usually, I am here with my daily photo challenge where you can submit your personal images from your travels to Prague and other locations in the Czech Republic in the comment section below.

The best 15 entries of the day will get my upvote. I will then pick the absolute winner of the day from these 15 photos. The winning photo will be awarded with a bigger upvote and it will also be featured as the cover image for the challenge post the next day to give the author of the winning shot some more exposure and publicity.

Don’t forget to add a short background story for your entry with at least 30 words and let me just remind you one more time that only personal images will be accepted in the challenge.

There were many great entries submitted in the yesterday Prague/Czech Republic photo challenge and I had a hard time picking the best one. After a deliberate consideration, however, I decided to choose the following entry by @francismoure:

The monument of 101 years Jan Hus in the Old Town Square. A quote from him on the monument reads: "love one another and want the truth to everyone." A date that I loved, this whole city is so full of life that you want to never leave it. And all the architectural styles they have are beautiful.
This photo was taken in October 2016.

I posted a closer shot of this a few months ago, but I found a wider shot I like too. This is Powder Tower, one of the original city gates that separates Old Town from New Town. I didn't know what this was at the time but I knew it was something striking, especially against the clouds in the sky. It really is an incredible architectural statement that leads into the beauty of Old Town.

Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in Central Europe, is a city that must be visited and visited with its magnificent atmosphere. You can easily visit this extraordinary city by organizing your own trip, which is the way I like and prefer more as you can see this beautiful city with Central European tours organized in our country.

Prague's Old Town Square is the oldest and most active spot in Prague, covering an area of 1.7 hectares. Located between Celetna and Staromestske namesti, the square is at the top of our list of places to visit in Prague. This gothic, Renaissance, baroque and neoclassical place is visited by tourists as well as the places to see and see, as well as human traffic and various shows that do not end day and night.

It is very enjoyable to watch the street demonstrators in the old city square, to sit and relax in the street cafes and restaurants. You can watch the hustle and bustle of the square by climbing to the top of the Old Town Hall where the Dilersen Astronomical Clock is located.
Prague Old Town Square is a place that has witnessed many important histories from the execution of Protestant leaders in the 17th century to the attacks of Soviet tanks in 1968. There are countless buildings and works you need to see in the Old Town Square, where the heart of the city is thrown and your soul is reflected. Astronomical Clock and Old Town Hall, Dum u Minuty House dating from 1611, which was inhabited by Franz Kafka for a while, Stone Canyon House, built with Baroque architecture and temporary exhibitions of the municipal gallery, was built as a simple church in the 14th century, the Church of the Virgin Mary in front of Tyn, the Jan Hus Monument in the name of Hus, who was told to change the church in 1415 and burnt for what they did, and the Marian Column, which was planned to be rebuilt in 1918 and destined for the independence of Czechoslovakia in 1918, is located behind the Tyn Church Storch House, which is known as the Ungelt patron of the area, Saint Vaclav 's painting, Golz - Kinsky Palace which was occupied by the communists for a while, the well in the middle of the small plaza and Male Namesti, the monument of plague are some of the most important structures you can see here.
Thanks for reading. @czechglobalhosts

One of the Prague's most-visible landmarks is the 216 meter-high Žižkov Television Tower. Also its Prague's tallest structure. Žižkov is also famous for Palác Akropolis, underground bars and stylish cafes. Its also contains several beautiful parks like Parukářka and Vítkov.

·

I think this is the closest one so far:)....

Big thanks to you Tomas for extending the competition for us Aussies here ^.^.

Back inside the Prague Castle, I had to the share the last plaque which I love the most. Because its in an awkward angle I had to take it sideways. The colours and the symbol on this reminded me of an old game I used to play and brings back memories of how nice to no worry about work and enjoy play and holiday. (reposting as I missed the cutoff last time)

No worries, you are most welcome!

The most beautiful time, when turn on the backlight, and the sky has not yet become black. At such times I'm torn to pieces. I want to be everywhere at the same time. But on the other hand you can stay in one place and watch as the sky slowly darkens and stars appear. The second option is closer to me. So you get fewer pictures, but more impressions.

Beautiful image as always. Thank you.

Prague is incredible around Christmas time. I took this photo during Christmas of December 2016. Prague Christmas markets are among the best in Europe, especially when it's in a beautiful winter wonderland! The atmosphere is further enhanced by elegant old houses, palaces and towers, cobblestoned streets and baroque squares lit with gas lamps, and wonderful Christmas decoration such as this one. :-)

Yes, indeed.... As the matter of fact, the Prague Christmas markets are voted as top in the world year after year. Tomas

The Great Synagogue in Plzen, Czech Republic. It is the second largest synagogue in Europe and world third largest synagogue. It is one of the most historical landmarks of Jewish community in Czech

You are welcome sir. I feel grateful to you for giving us a chance to share pictures here🙂

Hi, I want to talk about my experince about Prague
Prague is a magical city and I have not come across it. For hundreds of years, the capital city of Bohemia is fascinated by its elegant bridges, cathedrals, towers with golden hats and church dome, with its swift Vltava River. II. It is always lively, crowded and romantic, with almost no damage from World War II, with the medieval center of the fortunate city, with church bells, cathedrals, cathedrals, coves and cobbled streets lurking in the shadow of the ninth century castle overlooking the east.
The Czech Republic remains within Europe and has a temperate black climate. The winters are cold and humid, the summers warm, and the first and the autumn are exactly as these seasons require. Some days in the summer can be very hot. It is snowing in the winter, but the city is long before long. In general, we can say that Istanbul is a little cooler for Prague weather. Ideal months are May, June and September, but all summer and spring seasons are suitable for going to Prague.

Again another fabulous sky :-)

Thank you so much for your great intro!

For today entry I have prepared another photo from Prague. In last recent years there is usually small amount of snow there. I come from North of Bohemia so I am used to lower temperature, so when I am in Prague it is like spring for me :D

Your image is absolutely stunning!

Thank you ! :)

Located on the eastern side of the Petrin Hill, these creepy sculptures were created by a famous Czech sculptor Olbram Zoubek in 2002. The monument is dedicated to those who fell victims to communism in the Czech Republic. It looks very disturbing at night.

Here is a picture of the Fountain Stromovka with the Governor's Summer Palace in the background. It was right behind my apartment for the month I was in Prague. Well the park it is in was right behind my apartment. The part of town I was in was fantastic.

Also in the Czech Republic are places that seem to be almost untouched by human’s hand. This picture captures Palava Hills and river Jihlava. You can find there a lot of different kind of bugs, birds and other kind of animals. It is so peaceful there. You can take long walks along Jihlava river and you will meet only a few people.

Today I decided to share this photography of the National Museum. It is located right on top of the Wenceslas Square and I can totally see, why this dominant building is so greatly known. And if you don't know this place, than you should really visit Prague! It looks even more majestic in real life.

Chapel of St. Klara lies in the north of Prague in the Troja quarter. It stands at the highest point of a vineyard that bears the same name as a chapel. This vineyard is part of the Prague botanical garden. I turned my photo to black and white because I liked the contrast of the white chapel on the dark background.

This is my image today ... The Charles Bridge and the rooftops of the city seen from the top of Prague Castle. In the distance you can also see how vantage bridges adorn the river Moldava. The Charles Bridge is the tourist image of Prague, it is like being in a beautifully enchanted area with the tower on one side and the castle path on the other side. All tourists always want to be there.

A street artist in Old Town Square in Prague. In this place there are many street artists doing all different kind of performance, some of them are quite “crazy” as the one that in this photo.

I captured this wonderful sculpture located outside the Cross Club – a bit north of downtown Prague. The artwork is moving around and is the most steempunked(sic) thing I have ever seen, not only in the Czech republic, but everywhere I've been to. The club has a nice atmosphere, you can chill out, befriend nice strangers or dance like a crazy motherf***er. I tried it all and it was great, and I really recommend it if you're up for a different clubbing experience. From what I understand they have DJs there playing live sets almost every night and the place is really unique.

Really beautiful @czechglobalhosts ! Love czechrepublic! keep it up mate! Greetings from Spain :)

Prague is just that amazing city one cannot miss! This photo was taken on the first time we @travelingstories visited the Czech capital only to understand we needed to get back there and admire the perfect symbiosis between the old town and a modern, paced European city :)

Charles Bridge is one of the most famous bridges in the world and I can understand why. It has been around for almost 800 years. I believe it is not just the fact that it is old and beautiful, but also that it has a great atmosphere when you are crossing it, with music and paint artists all over it.

thats pretty cool mate!

The changing of the guard ceremony takes place in the courtyard of the Prague Castle and it happens every day at midday. It was quite nice to see them marching and there was band music too. It is definitely worth to be there at the exact time to be able to see it.

Nice view from your amazing bedroom balcon.this view has brought you to get a beautiful dream every night.you are very lucky people, because you have seen what I can not see in my life.I have never seen this scene is really amazing
Happy valentine day for you @czechglobalhosts
Love full
Thanks

Stodolní is a famous bar street in Ostrava. Every night is full of people from around the world. I used to work in one Irish pub called Dublin. That place was every night packed. It is one of the best bars there.

Museum Kampa

I took this picture of the Museum Kampa, form the other side of the River Vltava. It is a modern art gallery and they were holding an exhibition of Goya at the time I was there. I really like the yellow penguins in a queue, like they are waiting to have a go seating at the huge wooden chair.

helpful post.thank you for sharing us of your useful post

Wow amazing photography sir.Thanks for sharing with us.IMG_3447.GIF

My entry is about the beautiful night view from the Charles Bridge. This photo was taken on the last day of December when everyone was there to celebrate. The excitement was everywhere and the fireworks were incredible!

IMG_1291.jpg

This is my entry, sorry its a typical view, taken in 2008 when I visited with a friend over from Hong Kong. We have visted many cities in Europe together over the years but Prague, especially the old town has been by far her favourite :-)

We just loved the huge endless sky on this, the odd grey clouds threatening a perfect day and the colours make it almost look like a painting.
kindest regards :-)

CHARLES BRIDGE- PRAGUE
IMG-20160517-WA0049.jpg

Prague is like a city in a fairytale and Charles Bridge (Karluv Most) is one of the proof! Especially early in the morning, when the it is empty you will fell in love with the aura of the bridge... Also the statues on the bridge are amazing. I'm sure you will have desire to take photo of all:) Sunrise is the best time for photography because of the light angles! So I suggest you to wake up early and spend sime time in here while the other tourist are sleeping :) Enjoy!
