Hello fellow Steemians,

I hope you are all having a great weekend! :) 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 @sk-russell:

Holy Hill near Mikulov. Great view, great hike. Nice view of Mikulov and surroundings. Interesting rocky trail up. Pleasant hike, spectacular views! Holy Hill is a magical place. It has a special combination of natural surroundings, the location itself is a protected nature reserve where rare species of plants and animals are found.

For many, the beauty of Prague is at its peak at nightfall when its castle, bridges and charming buildings are illuminated.
I took the bridge in photos from all angles. And there are the other buildings: the Spanish synagogue, the theaters, the towers ... I find that at night, when they are lit from the inside, we want to know what's going on inside. It reminds me when, kid, I was looking at the lighted windows of Parisian apartments. I imagined people's lives.

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

"Pohledem na vodu vylepši si náladu" - this sign freely translates as: "Improve your mood by looking at the water" :) It can be found on a bench at the Vrbovec Pond (Rybnik Vrbovec in Czech) that is located in a protected natural area known as the Hvozdnice Microregion. Found in the Moravian - Silesian Region of the country, the reserve is home to numerous animal and plant species.

Sweet shot. That looks like a nice relaxing spot. I would like to sit there with a rum and coke and improve my mood.

The perfect walk
My & my girlfriend went there on vacation for 35 days and going to the old Town Square was something we dreamt of long time ago. This place is magical and is something you have to see for yourself. The only downside was that we couldn't see the clock because they were making a renovation on it.

The architecture and beauty of Praga´s houses have nothing to envy to the other Europeans capitals. I was walking, I looked to the right and on a narrow street I found this beautiful home, I would love to own something like this someday!

The Czechoslovak Pavilion at the Expo 1958 was built between 1956 and 1958 in Brussels. After the exhibition, the pavilion was dismantled. And was built in 1959 in Prague on Letná. In 1991 the building burned down and was demolished. He managed to save only restaurant that was reconstructed. Today it serves as an office building. The building has a beautiful view of Prague.

The Old Town is the oldest and by far the most beautiful city part of Prague. The heart of the historical center is the Old Town Square, which stands at the site of a 10th century marketplace, where a number of political and cultural events that influenced Prague's history took place.

It is prague city; even though the weather was not conducive enough, people were still having fun through boatcruise.
What i enjoyed most was the breeze and the view and the fact that a lot of tourists and visitors were around to catch a glimpse as usual.

I've spent 2 hours yesterday in the city centre in Brno (had a train transit on my way home to Slovakia) and made several pictures. This one is of a Petrov cathedral. Built in 1904 it's the dominating feature of Brno skyline and looks just fabulous.

One of the many trademarks of Prague. Certainly one of the most beautiful... Do not miss taking a few steps over it, there's a beautiful view over the city! We had a wander through the town and onto the Charles Bridge. Watching the sun go down in the distance from the bridge is beautiful.

Holy Hill, Mikulov.
Coincidentally, we just came from, when it was sunset. Beautiful views, fresh air. Olomouc at your fingertips. Inversion was little, so the turret sticking out of the mist, romance. Beautiful walks. The basilica is gorgeous.

It's shabbat today, so time for one of one of my favorite synagogue pictures. This is the Spanish Synagogue. I particularly like how the organ has been incorporated in the overall Moorish Revival style design, and also that you can peek at the pipes at the back. František Škroup who composed the Czech national anthem was organist here from 1836 to 1845.

When I slipped right into my own mind into the future I created... Prague had been the city of my destiny and even if my destiny had been the emotional death of me unforgotten is the larger-than-life magic that brought me there and otherworldly the ~ BEAUTY ~ of experiencing my whole inside reflected outwardly all around myself... it was worth a thousand times to die most truly.

My entry for the completion of today accompanied by a few poetic lines inspired by real-life events :)

Prague in general could be called the City of Towers. But, as I already wrote, most of them look somewhat the same. But you can not mistake the towers of the Tyn church with anything. They are called not only the most notable, but also the noblest in Prague.
No less famous is the bell of the Tyn Church, which weighs almost seven tons. To make this community suffer from the impacts of its own "language" (which constantly beats in the same place), the bell is turned over several times. Under the bell there are 10 commemorative coins, evidence of historical events.

The collection only contains machines linked to the Czech history of motorcycling. These primarily consist of motorcycles by Czech producers, though the collection also features numerous foreign models that were previously operated in the territory of what is now the Czech Republic.

We had a walk in the center of Prague and 'Vaclavske Namesti' was suprisingly empty. I decided to take this shot as it nicely points out the lenght of this square. We were also lucky to have sunny day.

Awesome photography. Would love to visit some day.

I also hope you can enjoy this weekend happily gathering with friends, family and friends. always use vacation time with maximum. happy nice weekend.

The Klementinum Library In Prague, Czech Republic, is an example of a very beautiful Baroque architecture building. The Mini Library was first opened in 1722 as part of the Jesuit university, and currently holds over 20,000 books.

Beautiful photo, but don't claim as yours pictures that are taken from other websites. This photo appears in hundreds of websites so I don't think you are the original author. This contest is only for original photos. Anyway, If I'm wrong let me apologize in advance.

I have followed the challenge well. this Photo of my old file, you should review more thoroughly with photos spread across the website. Thanks

I am pretty sure the photo is not his. It has been shared on the interent for years, it is a very famous photo and I doubt we are that "lucky" to have the author of the very original competing here in this contest...

OK, let me clear this up for everyone. The photographer of this photo is named Sean J Yan and he lives in my old town of Temple, TX, where I actually used to be a Police Officer, so @kutrulaju this is not your image and you did in fact plagiarize this photo. A link to Sean's 500px.com profile with this exact image is found here:
