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 @phortun:

Close-up of the front side of the Vitkov Monument - a national monument dominated by a giant statue of Jan Zizka, a legendary Czech warrior and military leader. The monument is located on the top of the Vitkov Hill, overlooking the Prague neighborhoods of Zizkov and Karlin.

The colorful Olomouc

During my bicycle touring I passed through some beautiful cities, one of them being Olomouc, where for sure a bit of my heart stayed on those colorful narrow streets. I'll be back Czech Republic!

Oh, I just love Olomouc. It is actually not far from where I live. Truly recommended for anyone to visit who wants to explore more then just a capital. Have a great day.

View of the St. Hedwig´s Church, one of the most important modernist architectural landmarks of my Czech hometown of Opava. Built between 1933 and 1937, the church is considered one of the greatest works of the prominent Silesian architect Leopold Bauer. Easily recognizable by its unusual, pyramid-like appearance, the church is dedicated to St. Hedwig (also known as Hedwig of Silesia), a famous Duchess of Silesia who lived in the late 12th and early 13th century.


Night view of the Bata Department Store, one of the commercial buildings located on the Wenceslas Square in the center of Prague. The Bata company was founded by Tomas Bata, one of the most famous and successful Czechoslovakian entepreneurs in 1894. These days, Bata Limited is a Canadian owned multinational footwear and fashion accessory manufacturer and retailer based in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Prague Castle at dusk, view from Holešovice waterfront through Negrelli's vidauct
The view of the Hradčany never hurt me. Mainly at dusk ...
The Prague Castle is strategically located and can be seen from many places in Prague.
In the foreground we can see Negrelli's viaduct. It is a stone railway bridge that was put into operation in 1850. It was first closed and repaired this year. The iron will rust, the concrete will break apart, but the stone is eternal!
Do you see group of laborers (orange vests on the right). They stopped working and watched the sunset.


Prague is a very popular destination among tourists. Prague, of course, is an amazing city that cannot help but enjoy. And so on a detailed inspection of all the sights can take a few days. Of course, walking around Prague you will not pass by the famous Charles Bridge. Here, everything is saturated with amazing history, a mixture of Slavic and German culture and medieval mysticism. And at the same time it is now an unusually comfortable city, with impeccably walking transport, cheap hotels .


Thousand times shared Prague Castle is almost an evergreen in this comment section. And yet, every new picture has something to offer. This pic was taken nearby the rushy castle "square" where me and my sis chilled out in the suuuperhot summer day.
