Prague : it’s in the details

Prague’s architecture goes all the way from Gothic and Baroque to Renaissance and Art Nouveau, so the wealth of detailing is astounding. I spend most of my time with a craned neck, looking upwards. A post dedicated to the details …

Imagine stepping out onto your balcony and there are these gorgeous sculpted figures. An owl, a book and a mask … it can only be about wisdom and theatre and learning.


Definitely Art Nouveau.






Can’t resist a red door.


St George slaying his dragon? Even Prague knew about it.
