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 @daveonarrival:

I wish I knew the story behind this work of art. It appears to be a boy holding up either a big beach ball or a figurative planet. It hangs by wires from Dolni Vitkovice in the city of Ostrava, an old steel plant that is now used as an events venue. There are works of art here and there, sometimes hidden in plain site. I was attending a party here. It is a really cool venue.

Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross - the most dominant landmark of the little Silesian village of Chuchelna. Home to just some 1,300 people, the village is located very close to the Czech - Polish border in the Moravian - Silesian Region of the Czech Republic.



Sweet looking building


That sure is very unusual construction well worth featuring today. Thank you so much and have a great day.


Side view of the National Theater (Narodni Divadlo in Czech), one of the most important Czech cultural institutions. Today the National Theatre consists of three artistic ensembles: opera, ballet and drama.

Reflection of the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew, Pilsen
This Gothic cathedral is one of the view landmarks in Pilsen. The Church dominates the square.Worth looking round,you can also go up the tower.The view is superb. Tower gives great views of the city especially for pictures.


Beautiful work

Pavilon of Hannau, Letenské sady, Praha
In 1791, 1891 and 1991, the Century Exhibition took place in Prague. The Czech industry and science were present here.
The Ironwerks in Komárov, owned by Prince William of Hannau, were introduced in 1891 by this pavilion.
It is the first building in Prague made of cast iron, concrete and glass. The building was donated to Prague. It was dismantled and transferred to the present place. There is a restaurant here today. It is also an interesting sightseeing place.

Cesky Krumlov

Cesky Krumlov is one of the most popular destinations of Czech Republic. It's in the southern part of Bohemia surounding by the Vltava River. It consists of 40 buildings and palaces and all are sitting on about
17 -18 Acres.

Presently it's known as the “Little Castle”. The Lords of Krumlov founded in the middle of the 13th century. It passed on to their relatives, the Rosenbergs, after they died. The Rosenbergs maintained it well, and by the 16th century, it has been expanded to a grand Renaissance residence.

Under Habsburg rule, structures of the Baroque style were added, later passing on to the Schwarzenbergs in 1719, to the Czech, and then to the state in the mid 20th century.

Prague is a very beautiful city, I was last time 2015, to look the
Ice Hockey World Championship 2015 Men. A very hospitable country!
So has the Czech capital hosted a World Championship for the 10th time.

Wait?!? Where do I park my Aston Martin? Yes Bond fans, I found another Casino Royale location. This one not far from Karlovy Vary in the town of Loket.

Only problem is, the spot where Bond parked his Aston Martin, on the way to meet Vesper and Mathis, now has a platform with seating. Oh well. Still, I feel like I'm in the movie seeing this little town.

Best View From Letna Beer Garden
Stunning views over one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Great open air space for drinking beer near great park. This place is looking down at Old Town and you get view of it all at once. It's quite a trek to the top but once there you can sit an enjoy beautiful surroundings of a park and lots of trees and a panoramic view of Prague.

There is such a category of attractions - for the youth. So, "The Wall of Lennon" - from this series, and even despite the fact that it appeared in the 80s of the XX century. There are few outstanding paintings or inscriptions on it. Rather, it is just a monument to freedom, love and peace throughout the world.

"Lennon lived, Lennon is alive, Lennon will live!"


Prague Castle
Wonderful architecture of the royal complex. This is one of the main attractions in Prague. Amazingly beautiful and historic castle with stunning gardens. It is a must visit for anyone who visits Prague. Remember, after security, you can wander the grounds for free and see beautiful views of Prague Old Town.

Cesky Krumlov
Such a charming and lovely town - you are walking through history as you step on the cobblestone streets. Very touristy but so much fun to walk around and admire the restoration work that has been done. So glad that Viking River Cruises offered this as an included excursion - well worth the time to see a preserved medieval village. We were very lucky to have a beautiful sunny day to explore.

Old Town Square
Lovely square, but if you want to see it empty, best arrive early in the morning. If you're looking for amazing people watching, random performers and a vibrant atmosphere, it is definitely the place to go. It's full of people from morning til late at night. Be sure to visit at night. It comes alive.

Cesky Krumlov is probably the most beautiful historic town in the Czech Republic. If not for the crowds of tourists, it looked like we were back to the old times, with many classic and beautiful buildings around. The view of the town is excellent looking from the castle. The town itself was peaceful, especially in the early morning or late evening when not much people were on the streets. It was a pleasure to walk along the streets, exploring new discoveries.

This pearl of the Czech Republic is, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful stages to be part of the journey to discover Central Europe. Adrspach is a town of stone located on the border between Poland and the Czech Republic, but it is not far from Prague. The unusual natural landscape in Europe, which we are used to knowing, is absolutely discovering by attending at least a half-day visit.
