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 @dali-gis:

Krizovnicke square. The early Baroque Church of St. Francis (kostel sv. Frantiska Serafinskeho) was built in 1679 – 1685 on the foundation of the original Gothic church according to the design of French architect Jean Baptiste Mathey. His plans were of vital importance to the origins of Czech dynamic Baroque.

Officially Kostel Nejsvetejsiho Salvatora, or Church of Holy Saviour, in case you are looking for it in guide books. The church deserves more notoriety than its location, across the narrow street, and facing the entrance to the Charles Bridge. Thousands pass it every day more interested in the bridge than the history and culture that the church brings to Prague. Stop and admire it at least. Now mostly used for organ concerts, the church has stood here for almost 500 years. Also in the shadows of St. Francis of Assisi across the street. It is a simple looking structure with a large arched entrance and two smaller arched ways and a railing balcony above adorned with statutes of saints. Although I was not looking for it, I was happy to stop and admire it although no concerts were planned while we were there.

Thank you very much.

View of the St. John Tower, one of the most famous landmarks of the Silesian city of Frydek-Mistek. Located at the confluence of two rivers Ostravice and Moravka in the foothills of the Beskydy Mountains near the Polish and Slovakian borders, the city is home to over 55,000 people.

View of one of the beautiful streets in the historic center of Hradec nad Moravici, a picturesque little town that is home to some 5,500 people and is located just a few kilometers outside of Opava, the capital city of the Czech part of Silesia.

The most picturesque spot in Prague
The Charles bridge is an excellent place for everyone whenever you're around. A beautiful bridge with a lot of pre-wedding shoot happening on it for some reason. Great place to take a few memorable pics. Anytime after 8:30 am, you will see truck loads of tourists here So it is advised to either go early morning or late evening.

Cesky Krumlov
This is a charming city built around the winding Vltava River. We had an excellent walking tour outlining the remarkable history of this jewel. It escaped the fate of many other towns (not being torn up by bombs). There are fascinating buildings in a profusion of styles and colors. Because it is popular old Cesky Krumlov can get very crowded.

Lapidarium of the National Museum, Exhibition Grounds, Prague 7
P1090298.JPG
Lapidarium is the place where sculptures are collected. There are 3,000 here. Many original sculptures in Bohemia and Prague were replaced by copies. And here you can see the originals. Originals are protected from bad weather and all other harmful effects - exhales, pigeons, etc.
The Lapidarium building is neo-baroque in 1905. But it has been enlarged and changed many times.

The Old Town square has beautiful historic Prague buildings around it. There is also a regular market there selling local food and souvenirs. There was constantly a big crowd there, especially when getting close to the hour because that is when the clock will strike and you can watch the little statues on it get animated and the trumpeter play. Good to get a chance to visit this place during the day and once again at night.

We enjoyed Old Town Hall completely! The children chasing the bubbles, the mimes, all the people and the food. It was all fantastic! It was fun to mill around the square as we waited for the chime. The details of the clock are fascinating and the survival of the wars of the last century are a true gift. The Old Town Hall is one of the oldest town halls in the world.

The church of St. Ludmilla is located in the Vynohrad district between Prague 2 and Prague 3, in the middle of two streets surrounded by a park stands out for its typically Gothic verticality. A real gem outside the center. To be seen absolutely.

Powder Tower
Good day to all. The second of the towers I saw and examined in Prague. They did not visit the tower inside with the family, they thought it was not necessary, but in vain. The tower itself is large. Like all towers, a lot of decorations outside - figures, ornaments, stucco. And be sure to watch. The number of towers and clocks on them in Prague is amazing. In general, for the first time in Prague, I realized one thing - it is imperative to return here. Successful all rest.

The Prague Castle is a city within a different city. Wonderful, from a distance you can see its greatness and extension !! Its cathedral is imposing. its streets, bridges, access. everything is great! And in opposition to so much grandeur and grandeur, the "Golden Lane" is a little street on the side of the castle, where the lower class lodged. Among those minimal houses and almost "dolls"; There is the house where Franz Kafka lived. The Golden lane is as enjoyable as the rest of the castle. In general, all of Prague is a beautiful city. Of those cities that could be visited dozens of times!

Žižkov Television Tower - cool and interestingly looking transmission tower built in Prague between 1985 and 1992. Since 2006, to mark the 125th anniversary of the elevation of Žižkov the tower is illuminated in the evenings. There's also a restaurant up there and a cool machine which transforms a czech currency coin into those cool fancy collectible coins with the pattern typical for the location.

The second courtyard of the Prague castle is dominated by the Kohl's Fountain (Kohlova kašna). It is a baroque fountain dated from 1686. Its sculptor was Jeroným Kohl and the fountain was named like him, but they also name it Lion (because of the sculptures on the pillar) or Leopold (because of Emperor Leopold I).
