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 @khaan:

Reflection of the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew, Pilsen. St. Bartholomew's Gothic Cathedral is located in the main town square and surrounded by some marvelous old buildings. Access to the cathedral is limited to a viewing area during "Tourist Hours" but worth a visit just to view the architecture.

One of the beautiful old houses found in the historic center of Krnov. Located at the foothills of the Jeseniky Mountains in the Moravian - Silesian Region of the Czech Republic, the town of Krnov is home to about 24,000 people and it is famous for producing Kofola, one of the most popular soft drinks in the country.

Such awesome colors.

Wow, did not know Kofola comes from there. What a spectacular building. Something new to the contest and well worth featuring. Have a great day!

A detailed of the John Lennon Wall, one of the iconic places of Prague. Located at Malá Strana, near the French Embassy. This place was a landmark of the youth against the communist regime in Czechoslovakia, now days is a symbol of the free speech.

A very colorful town
The historic center as well as the town is full of history and it will depend on the storyteller you may hear so many. The place is very charming and the people is very friendly. A short walk thru the city of Český Krumlov will bring you to the 16th century and the atmosphere will be topped by the castle tour.

Chateau in Letná, Letenské sady, Praha 7
P1090099.JPG
Since 1863, the restaurant has been operating here. Once there was a major crossroads here.
It was standing right over the Chain bridge of Franz I, which operated from 1841 to 1891. Today it was replaced by The Bridge of Legions from 1898. The cable car was led from the bridge. The cable car from 1891 was connected to the 1st electric tram in Prague ... But that's all the past.
But there's still music on the weekend, dancing here and eating and drinking.

Seriously, I get a nosebleed just looking up at this huge gothic church. Just one more view of her. This time from the front. I very much enjoyed this attraction. Very beautiful paintings and architecture. Kutná Hora is family friendly and St Barbara's Church offers an amazing view and historical insight.

One of the most unique and most attractive outdoor and natural areas in the Czech Republic is these areas with sandstone cliffs - Adrspach-Teplice is likely to be from these three areas, although the others are also nice, Bohemian Paradise and Little Switzerland. So many beaituful attraction in these area.

This is my portrait. It's not exact. Krakonos has been the ruler of the Giant Mountains since the beginning of time.

If you love Gothic architecture, you simply have to see this. It is one of the most famous Gothic churches in central Europe and it is a UNESCO world heritage site. St. Barbara is the patron saint of miners (among others), which was highly appropriate for the town Kutna Hora, the wealth of which was based entirely upon its silver mines.

Old Town Square
It is the heart of the city, the oldest and richest part of history collects art and attractions steeped in history and legend, in short, a must to visit. beautifully preserved tenements many attractions big selection of pubs only one minus is a huge amount of tourists during the day and at night.

Just behind the treasurer is a beautiful blue lake, where you can not bathe during the opening hours. Here is also the Felsenweg, a great round is definitely recommended. After the first flat, you get on a steep ridge up and down, leading to many beautiful views and views of various shaped sandstone rocks, some of which are over 100 meters high. You can save your boat trip: swampy, elongated lake does not offer anything special. Much, much nicer waiting for the final time or returning in the evening and swimming in the lower lake in the middle of the rocks. The real summit!

Cesky Krumlov
It is not very big, the old city but it looks like it is taken out of a fairy tale. It is surrounded by a river and the city is like a small island guarded by the large castle walls. A really nice place to visit.

Secret beach at Lipno lake

Last year's birthday trip was to Lipno lake, to a small pension in the middle of nowhere near Milná. When exploring I found this wonderful beach that was completely empty and therefore relaxing for me. I took many photos and enjoyed the evening until a storm was coming and I had to go back - to enjoy a wonderful dinner, some glasses of excellent rum and pool billard :-)

This city is filled with some of the best architecture in Prague. This is a beautiful city with lots of great scenery and historic site to visit. Definitely a must see if your visiting Prague. There was so much life and energy within the square both at night and during the day. At night it was still full of life and a very enjoyable place to visit.

This photo was taken from the Charles Bridge in Prague, one evening after dinner, while we were walking. We were lucky enough to attend a beautiful fireworks show directly on the Vltava River. The colored lights of the long river reflected the beautiful colors on the water.

An impression from when I visited the as popular as beautiful historic town ˋKutná Hora´ this summer ~ 🌟 ~ promenading along the large cobble stone way that leads to the mesmerizing ˋSt. Barbara's Church´ many statues can be spotted ~ they speak of Christian heritage obviously but I yet have to discover all their meaning... that would take quite some while I believe...! ~ When one experiences them shadow-like and gloriously rising against the horizon (- especially at the twilight hour -) it may not be that hard to envision God himself sitting enthroned above the whole scenario just as well... ha...!...

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.

I had the privilege to visit Ostrava for a travel blogger conference. I got to go up the tower of the New Town Hall to take in the 360 degree view. The best view being overlooking the old town with Dolni Vitkovice, the old steel plant, in the background.

Charless bridge enterance. You can go to Charles Bridge anytime. There are no closing hours (it's publicly open 24/7) and no entrance fee – it's completely free. Charles Bridge is a historic bridge that crosses the Vltava river in Prague, Czech .... At the end of World War II, a barricade was built in the Old Town bridge tower gateway.

Statue of Franz Kafka
This is an 11 meter tall moving statue of Kafka located in a non descriptive area of artistic Prague. It is a combination of modern art with extraordinary mechanics. The different sections of the statue move to form the entire face. It is an amazing piece of art, mechanics and creativity. It takes a few minutes for the moving statue to complete Kafka's face.

Above from Petrin tower. Drone view of prague.
There’s no better way to photograph Prague than from up above. With its fairytale red roofs and its many towers, it makes sense to head to one of these viewpoints for the best shots of the city.

@khaan You took really cool photo ! I like this perspective, photo caught my eye !
