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 @nenio:

Photo of a detail in the ceiling and dome of the Spanish Synagogue of Prague. It is called like that since it was built in the Moorish revival style. Its construction took place in the second half of the XIX century. It is located in the neighborhood of Prague called Jesefov. From the photo it can be seen that the interior is beautiful decorated mosaics forming geometrical patterns.

On the Charles Bridge is a real gallery of thirty statues and groups of sculptures, mostly Baroque. Most of it was done even 300 years after the beginning of the construction of the bridge, so at the hinge of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Today, the original statues have often been replaced by copies.

What a great image to be featured today! Thank you so much and have a great weekend. Tomas

View of the greenery surrounding the Janek Pond (Jankuv Rybnik in Czech) 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.

You just gotta love the simplicity of our beautiful landscapes.

In the heart of Brno city are many architectural beauties; ranging from the designs to the arrangements.
I believe that the view is well seen during the mid of spring when trees and vegetation are well developed to add to the beauty.

One of my favourite places in the whole country! Beautiful panoramas, unique nature, historical heritage and all of this in the middle of a famous winemaking region! It's a smaĺl hilly area with castle ruins and sacrificial lake. A nice stop on the way. Beautiful scenery. I love this place for specific nature environment.

Can you tell us where is it? It's a beautiful place worth to visit but if you can tell us some more details we'll have the chance to visit It next time we come to Czech Republic. Thanks a lot!

Pálava Protected Landscape Area, Mikulov.
Interesting landscape and forest with grapevines and ruined castles.
We walked a 12 km trail which was well marked and popular with locals. Some excellent views from the high points. Track was mostly in very good condition but you need some fitness for the steeper parts.
Thanks for asking.

Thanks a lot! Cheers!

On a misty morning, hot air balloons take flight over Český Krumlov. The first manned montgolfière flight took place over two hundred years ago, and now we send people into space, but I still find something magical about hot air balloons gracefully ascending. I can imagine the breathtaking view of that picturesque town from above.

The Vltava river flows through the center of Prague, and is the waterway around which the city has developed over the past 1000 years. Even in the city centre, nature is ever present by the river. Swans float around in search of food, and other birds fly through the air and swoop down on the water.

My V70 needed some service, so I and my wife visited Náchod today. While my car passed the service, we went to see the city and especially the castle, which stands on a hill above the city and is its dominant.
This is the less traditional view:

Lovely old town square surrounded by amazing buildings and churches!
This square is definitely one of the nicest in the world. It's fairly big so doesn't get very crowded (even though there's a lot of people going there). The buildings and churches look like art! Beautiful! Perfect place for people who likes architecture and art.

View from the middle of the trail to top of Snezka, czech highest mountiain. It's high 1605 meters which is not really much and especially as a Slovakian guy, I'm happy about this cuz that means we have higher mountains :D (if someone except for @czechglobalhosts is reading this, to get my point you should know that there's this healthy rivalry between Slovakia and Czech Republic)Also, I'm not really into hiking, so I appreciated it even more, since the hike wasn't that long. But the view was for sure suupercool! :) It's just the hiking part I'm not really into :D

LOL, and it never ends:)......

The Czechoslovak government built a system of border fortifications, as well as some fortified defensive lines inland, from 1935 to 1938 as a defensive countermeasure against the rising threat of Nazi Germany.

We were on a hiking trip and we got to see a couple of these:

DAY IN PRAGUE

PRAGA, REPUBLICA CHECA.jpg

Beautiful city. The trip from Berlin is completely amazing. When you leave the station you realize that you are in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe (according to my experience). We walked throughout the afternoon. You have to cross the Charles Bridge, go to the Astronomical Clock and eat prague ham in the square. It is really beautiful.
