Prague’s Architectural Wonderland (July 2016)

with No Comments

Prague, in the Czech Republic, was like a portfolio of architectural styles and structures. Together, the city was greater than the sum of its parts. Each building design and detail brought a different flavor to the city, e.g. the medieval astronomical clock and Church of Our Lady before Týn in Old Town Square. Other unique structures were the Charles Bridge, Dancing House and the buildings at the Jewish Quarter. The Charles Bridge had an array of 30 statues created by different sculptors.

Other unique-looking churches included the Cathedral of St. Clement, St. Vitus Cathedral and St. Nicholas Church. The Golden Lane, a street in Prague Castle, was lined with colorful miniature houses. This was once home to goldsmiths, a fortune teller and a Nobel laureate in literature, among others. Golden Lane was connected to the Dalibor Tower, which contained a dungeon and collection of medieval armor.

Prague was certainly an architectural wonderland, filled with history and legends.
