Hello fellow Steemians!

I am here with another round of my 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. I host this photo challenge twice a week - on Tuesday and Friday.

You can submit your entries in the current round from now until Tuesday, 6 AM (CET). Please, 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.

The best 15 entries of the round will be rewarded with my upvote. I will also pick the absolute winner of the round from these 15 photos and reward him with an extra upvote on one of his recent posts published on the Steem blockchain. The winning photo will be also featured as the cover image for the next round of the photo challenge to give the author some more exposure and publicity.

There were many great entries submitted in the last round of the Prague/Czech Republic Photo Challenge and I had a hard time picking the absolute winner. After a deliberate consideration, however, I decided to choose the following entry by @krakonos:

Břevnov Benedictine Monastery, Prague. This monastery has existed for over a thousand years. Twice he was almost completely destroyed and twice restored to even greater beauty. I like to walk there. Spring is my favorite. Around the monastery there is a system of ponds that makes it even more beautiful.

Congratulations, @krakonos! It is my pleasure to upvote one of your recent posts.

Thank you for your submissions everyone. Have a great day and keep on Steeming!

View of lines of trees in a beautiful public park in Straznice on a cloudy autumn day. Home to almost 6,000 people, Straznice is little a town in the Hodonin District in South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic.

Façade of Saint Vitus Cathedral in Prague. It was built in Gothic style and it shows the typic element of this architectonic style, as the twin towers, the rose window of stained glass, pointed arches for the doors and the gargoyles.

I love the gothic architecture of this cathedral, very beautiful. The St. Vitus Cathedral is 124 meters long, 60 meters wide and the main tower is 96.5 meters high. It's the largest and most important church in the country.

The best artists of their time were often financially dependent on the construction activities of the monasteries.
The taste of the abbots of the monasteries was exquisite. That's why they chose only the best artists.

Old Town Astronomical Clock. The height of the four-story tower is 69.5 meters. Every hour a small view. Apostles and Jesus Christ appear before the audience, and the skeleton rings a bell, as if reminding us that another hour of our earthly wandering has expired.
The face of the dial depicts the universe - day, dawn, dusk and night. Three golden circles are moving around the sphere, representing the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, as well as the equator.

Chateau in Moravsky Krumlov

Small city Moravsky Krumlov is situated 40 km southly from Brno. It used to be visited by tourists thanks to attractive exhibition Slovanska epopej - large paintings of Alfons Mucha. Now is exhibition moved from the chateau. Unfortunately the building is in horrible state and there is just a little chance that the monumental artwork comes back.

Hey, @czechglobalhosts is there any way to speak to you in a more "flowy" way than comments under your post? Love your contest and they are true gem, so I would like to discuss something with you.
Discord/slack/mail/linkedin - everything works fine. :) cheers.

A děkuju za ocenění.
