Travel Tip: Black and white beauty of Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic

in travel •  2 years ago 

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.

Located in the Lesser Town (“Mala Strana” in the Czech language) of the historic center of Prague, the Church of St. Nicholas is a monumental Baroque church built in the first half of the 18th century. It is one of the most famous and photographed churches in Prague. Source: Shutterstock, author: Marc C. Johnson

Colloquially also known as Fred and Ginger, the Dancing House is among the most prominent examples of modern architecture in Prague. Found on the bank of the Vltava River, this remarkable building was designed by renowned architects Vlado Milunic and Frank Gehry. Source: Shutterstock, author: HelloSvet

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

Wow when I visited Prague I saw all of these but the dancing house. I had no idea something like that was in Prague. I wonder if it looks out of place being that Prague is a very old city and has a lot more ancient architecture than other more modern cities.

Amazing photography sir.Upvote and resteem done.

i saw some photos in black and white challenges of Charles Bridge but this photio is really so briliant from this angel make more brilliant this photo and also in B&W effects is more looking so impressive @czechglobalhosts

Prague looks like a magical city. Especially the building you described like so below. Its has an exceptional design.

Colloquially also known as Fred and Ginger, the Dancing House is among the most prominent examples of modern architecture in Prague. Found on the bank of the Vltava River, this remarkable building was designed by renowned architects Vlado Milunic and Frank Gehry.
Your photo skills are good. Which Camera did you use.?

Nice view

Prague is a very beautiful city, but from your perspective it looks as if it's not from this world!

Stunning photos. I have never been to Czech Republic.

Wonderful city in the world.I like your all photograph.Thanks to sharing this kind of informative post.

Wonderful photos of your hometown!

Prague would be an awesome place to fly the birdcam!

European architecture is unmatched in its aesthetic nature and the nostalgia/ historic feel of being in a structure that has existed for centuries, generations of humans have walked exactly where you walked.

Lovely post!

Thanks for sharing your Homeland beauty, i think Czech Republic is the place for the real traveler .

This art took me to old age; as i am huge fan of ancient assets.

Completed in 1402, the Charles Bridge is a massive stone bridge spanning the Vltava River in the historic center of Prague.

This reminds me of "SHAHI FORT" of my native land. Both are quite similar in many aspects. I think i have see Charles Bridge in a Bollywood Movie "Hum Sath Sath Hein".
You are truly so blessed with Peace and Beauty in your land @czechglobalhosts

Keep letting us know about Czech Republic More and More :)

Stay Blessed, Steem On!

for me black and whites are more eye catching than coloured is because when it in black and white it creates more sharp images :) nice captures
