Prague historical center, more than ten centuries old, fascinates visitors by the unparalleled ensemble of many architectural styles – Romanesque rotundas, Gothic spires, Renaissance palaces, the Jewish synagogues, Baroque churches and monasteries, Art Nouveau and Modernist houses ‑ all telling the story of the city largely untouched by natural disasters, the last century wars and sealed off by Iron Curtain from the rest of the world for the last fifty years.
The Summer Palace at Prague Castle is one of the earliest examples of the Renaissance period. There are two magnificent Baroque Churches of St Nicholas in Prague both built by the same architect Kilian Ignac Dientzenhoffer – one in the Old Town, and the second one across the river in Mala Strana.
Prague’s Municipal House (Obecni Dum) is a showcase of Art Nouveau design.
Prague is one of the few cities in the world where you can see cubist architecture. House of the Black Madonna (Dum U Cerne Matky Bozi) on Celetna was built in this style.
Cheerful Dancing Building ( Tancici Dum) by Chorvatian Vlado Milunic and American Frank Gehry is a modern architectural addition to the city, inspired by the couple of Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers.
