Dear Steemit friends,
Let me take this opportunity to present you some of the greatest images that have appeared in my daily Prague/Czech Republic Photo Challenge in the past week.
If you are not familiar with the contest, feel free to check my blog as it is a regular daily photo challenge that everyone can join. I am collecting personal pictures of other Steemians from their visit to Prague and other locations in the Czech Republic and rewarding their effort in the form of an upvote.
Please sit back and enjoy some of the greatest recent Prague/Czech Republic submission.
Have a great weekend and keep on steeming!

This has a fabulous atmosphere with so much going on with entertainment provided. This is the heart of the old city,especially you get your bearings from here to the Jewish quarter and Charles bridge and many streets lead off this important traffic free zone.

Praděd is a mountain in the Hrubý Jeseník range, on the border of the Moravian-Silesian and Olomouc Regions. With its elevation of 1,491.3 m (4,893 ft) above sea level, it is the highest mountain in Czech Silesia and Moravia, and the fifth-highest in the whole of Czechia. You can see the TV tower representative of the mountain.

Pálava Protected Landscape Area. The town is quite small so one weekend is enough to see most of it. Really nice view over the town of Mikulov from the Palava hills. One of the best places in South Moravia. Must see. Must hike to the top for panoramic views.

Escape the crowds and visit one of Prague's most important landmarks after dark. You will drive to Prague Castle, passing the "Hell's Hole" on the way. You will enter the castle estate and will see the Golden Lane, discovering its links with Alchemy. You can admire the three spiers of Saint Vitus Cathedral and Prague Castle while immersing yourself in this nocturnal atmosphere and discovering this remarkable city from a new perspective.

Photo of the façade of the Spanish synagogue at Jesefov in Prague. This synagogue was built in the second half of the XIX century and the style used is Moorish revival (for this reason, it is called the Spanish synagogue). Recently I published in your blog a photo of the interior of this building which is beautifully decorated.

View of the famous Kravare Chateau, a majestic Baroque chateau located in the little Silesian town of Kravare. The building was first mentioned in the first half of the 16th century but its current shape was formed during a reconstruction between 1721 and 1728. The chateau also includes a museum, permament exhibitions, vast English-style parks and even a golf course.

Prague has been a political, cultural and economic centre of central Europe complete with a rich history. Founded during the Romanesque and flourishing by the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque eras, Prague was the capital of the kingdom of Bohemia and the main residence of several Holy Roman Emperors, most notably of Charles IV.

Photo in sepia tone of Old Town Square. In the image, it can be seen the beautiful Gothic towers of Church of Our Lady before Týn. The buildings of the photo are in Gothic and Neo-Renaissance. At the left of the image there is the Kinský Palace, which is an art museum.

When we were in Loket, we couldn't visit the castle as it was closed. From the outside it is a beautiful castle, set an a fantastic scenery. We walked through the whole history center of the town and saw the castle from different angles. I will certainly visit it next time I'm in Loket.

Not sure if world-famous but for sure world-unique Adrspach Rocks in Teplice region are must visit in czech republic for sure. There are actually many rock pieces very close to this one which have much more spectacular shape, but I liked the whole scene here. With the sunset and the perfect green grass :)

One important this i have learnt about photography is how different photographers view the same subject of interest or scenery. The photo remains an image of the prague castle but different photographers get different and peculiar shots any time the place is visited. Let us continue to appreciate this lovely and amazing shot.

Linking Malà Strana to the Old Town, the Charles Bridge is traditionally the place to see in Prague,
If you come from Karlova Street, you will inevitably fall on the tower of the Old Town, gateway to Charles Bridge. This tower is just iconic. You can climb the tower to have a higher view, and contemplate the Prague Castle and its imposing silhouette or view of the Vlatava. It is therefore necessary to linger a little on this tower, then to pass its way to cross the bridge.

This picture is one of my favorite views of Prague. It is taken from the top of ulice Ke Hradu which leads down from the castle to Úvoz and Nerudova, two beautiful streets lined with restored houses, many of them sporting decorated façades. The former leads up to the Strahov Monastery which you can still up on the hill in the background, the latter to Malá Strana, or Lesser Town.
