Finally. The clock resumed a few days ago. The big reveal! Love Orloj, the colors are so bright now. The blue is brighter than when I got tattoo few years ago. I loved watching this clock when we visited there!

Such a solid and classic bridge. Can't believe it's more than 700 years' old. We had crossed it again and again during our time in Prague, and it's constantly with lots of bustling activities: venders selling all kinds of touristy souvenirs, people taking selfies and family photos, those who admired the statues along both sides. Indeed, standing in the centre of the bridge, be it in front of you or behind you, you can't resist to take a photo of all that majestic architecture on both sides. The bridge consciously or unconsciously renders one a sensation of medieval aura, no wonder we consciously or unconsciously walked through it time and again. The only drawback was it's really overcrowded, which deprived me the opportunity of standing there quietly to daydream a bit, ha ha, reminiscent of kings and castles centuries ago.

Thank you so much for your great entry with a wonderful description. Well deserved featuring it in today's contest.

View of some of around 80 beautifully decorated wine cellars in Petrov - Plze. One of the famous and visited tourist attractions of the area, the vineyard complex has a tradition dating back to as early as the 15th century. The village of Petrov is located in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic.

Photo of the John Lennon Wall in Prague, located in the neighborhood of Malá Strana. It is considering a “monument” of the freedom of speech; since during the communist regime, the youth painted graffitis related to the lyrics of Lennon´s song and the authorities removed the painted and later they were painted again. Now days the graffitis continuously change.

At the end of September, I went to the Bohemian Paradise to explore the new sites that are ideal for taking pictures. One of the stops was Kost Castle. Unfortunately, the weather was against and on a beautiful day it was just before the sunset became gray. Fortunately, this castle will excel in any weather.

The Prague Astronomical Clock is a medieval astronomical clock in Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. It is located on the southern wall of the Old Town City Hall on the Old Town Square and is a popular tourist attraction.

The Prague Astronomical Clock consists of three main parts: the astronomical clock face, which represents the position of the sun and the moon in the sky, showing various astronomical materials; the "Apostles Walking", which displays the apostles and other moving sculptures every hour; the lower calendar disk represents the month.

Fair Palace, Dukelských hrdinů, Praha 7

What's interesting about this modern box? For example, it's 90 years old. It was actually put into operation in 1928. It is a functionalist building. The material for its building was partly carried by horse-drawn carts...
During the Nazi occupation, the palace served to gather our Jewish fellow citizens before sending them to the Terezín Ghetto.
After the war there were various offices. In 1974 the palace burned. The fire did not stop for six days. The repair lasted for almost twenty years.
Now the National Gallery is located here, specifically the collections of modern art.

This image of the dancing house, which unfortunately we did not enter, is seen from the long river Vltava, while we were walking on a late August afternoon in Prague.

Prague Castle
I came here with my partner last month and I absolutely loved it, It’s absolutely stunning. We visited all three parts and so glad we did. Got some stunning pictures. It was a beautiful day and very busy. Would definitely recommend anybody to visit.

Peace Square, not so far from Wenceslas 7 minutes walk, in which - the Cathedral of St. Lyudmila, where Hasek once married his wife (I do not remember which one) A nice place. For photo lovers, it is better to visit in the evening (so that the sun does not beat the matrix).

The Old Town Square of Prague is really breathtaking. It is unique among the great cities of Europe in the variety of its architecture, which mow has been mostly restored after decades of neglect under Communism. Unlike many other cities, Prague never suffered destruction by bombs. The buildings are really unforgettable. Although there are crowds, it is still possible to look up and forget them while contemplating one of the most glorious collections of buildings in Europe.

Church Of St. Nicholas
The church is very beautiful both externally and inside. Its dome can be seen from almost anywhere in the city. The ticket costs 70 crowns. Too bad for the renovations that cover most of the frescoes in the nave.

Dancing on the Rasin Riverbank, this singular piece of modern architecture symbolizes the dancing pair of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. The angled glass tower was meant to resemble Rogers and the concrete tower her partner Astaire. The famed architects Frank Gehry and Vlado Milunic designed the building in the 1990's, with the interiors by Czech designer Eva Jiiricna.
While we did not enter the building, the exterior view at night was magical.

St. Vitus Cathedral
The building outside it’s already a piece of art, and inside the Golden colors of the columns, ceilings and the many perfect paintings shows an innovative and unique design in architecture. You will need more than one hour for sure inside to see our the many sculptures, paintings and rooms around in details.

The heart of the romantic city The old town, listed on the World Heritage List, is, as the name suggests, the oldest part of the city and includes some of the most beautiful monuments in the city. It is a labyrinth of small cobbled streets, especially with the Jewish Quarter. It is also by its superb central place that became famous this district. Historical heart of the city, with its palaces, churches, houses of notables, it is still very popular and animated by both Prague and tourists. Do not miss this obligatory step of your stay and especially take a coffee or eat in a restaurant overlooking the square.

Cesky Krumlov
what a fantastic day we have had here. A fantastic tour of the castle, where the bears still guard the castle in the moat. Lovely streets and a very nice atmosphere. Very touristy, but it was more than worth the crowds. There was also a torture museum about the punishments in former times. I felt a little nauseous, but the children loved it

Very good travel.Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us.

As my sis' @zzuzza moved to Brno for her Bachelor studies, I went out there several weeks ago to check, where she lives and stuff. I'm totally satisfied with my choice of studying in Innsbruck, but I have to say Brno also has a lot to offer. We went for a beer to some tiny aisle close to her flat and this majestic random church was there. It's just funny that in other parts of the world, such church would be kinda "famous" place and in Czech republic - e.g. Brno or Prague, there are just sooo many of them all over the place :D
