Hello fellow Steemians,
Welcome to my Travel Tip edition where I promote some of the most beautiful places and landmarks of my homeland, the Czech Republic. This time around, however, I have something special for you.
I recently saw some cool black and white images submitted by other Steemians in the B&W photo challenge, which inspired me to compile a little collection of B&W images from Prague.
So, without further ado, enjoy these black and white shots taken in the capital city of my beautiful homeland, the Czech Republic.
Completed in 1402, the Charles Bridge is a massive stone bridge spanning the Vltava River in the historic center of Prague. Decorated by two lines of 30 statues and statuaries, the Charles Bridge is an iconic landmark of Prague and one of the most important civil Gothic-style structures in the world.

Colloquially also known as Fred and Ginger, the Dancing House is among the most prominent examples of modern architecture in Prague.

Known by many other names such as the Tyn Church, Tyn Monastery or just Tyn, the Church of Our Lady before Tyn, is a majestic gothic church and the dominant feature of the Old Town of Prague, Czech Republic. Built in the 14th century, the church is easily recognizable by its two, 80-m (262 ft) tall towers. Source: Shutterstock, author: Pyty
Many of Prague streets (especially in the historic center) are laid in cobblestone and boast a series of incredible decorative patterns and designs. Mainly found in the pedestrian zones, some of these cobblestone designs are dating back to centuries ago. Source: Shutterstock, author: Dana Betcman
