Prague top 10 architecture monuments

Prague is renowned for its towers, winding streets and buildings from nearly
every period of architecture – from Romanesque rotundas and Gothic cathedrals
to Baroque and Renaissance palaces, to progressive and global award-winning
modern architecture.

TOP 10 Architecture Jewels of Prague

1 Prague Castle – Pražský hrad

Prague Castle has been an important symbol of the Czech state for over
a millennium. It was founded in the 9th century and became the seat of Czech
rulers and presidents. The castle complex, one of the largest in the world, is made
up of historical palaces, offices, churches, fortifications, gardens and picturesque
spots, such as the famous Golden Lane. The very sight of it is truly one of the most
spectacular panoramas in the world.

2 GOLDEN LANE

Address: Prague Castle – Pražský hrad

definitely worth to see in the Prague Castle Complex…

 

3. The Cathedral of St. Vitus, St. Wenceslas and St. Adalbert (Katedrála
sv. Víta, Václava a Vojtěcha) – Prague Castle, 3rd courtyard

This Gothic cathedral, the spiritual symbol of the Czech state, was founded in
1344 on the site of the original Romanesque rotunda. The construction took
nearly 600 years and was finally completed in 1929. Its impressive interior is
home to such wonders as the beautifully decorated St. Wenceslas Chapel with
the tomb of St. Wenceslas, the underground tombs of Czech kings, and the Crown
Jewels Chamber, where the Czech crown jewels are stored.

4 Charles Bridge and its Bridge Towers (Karlův most)

Construction on the oldest and most famous bridge in Prague began in 1357 by
Charles IV. It was completed in 1402. The bridge is supported by fortified towers at
either end – the smaller of the Lesser Quarter towers dates from the 12th century,
and the higher tower is about 300 years later. The entrance gate to Charles Bridge
from the Old Town, the most beautiful Gothic gateway in Europe, was completed
before the year 1380. The bridge was decorated with 30 statues of saints between
1683 and 1928.

 

5 Old Town Hall and the Astronomical Clock (Staroměstská radnice
s orlojem)

Address: Staroměstské náměstí 1 (Old Town Square 1), Prague 1

The Town Hall was established in 1338 as the seat of the Old Town administration.
The oldest part of the complex consists of a beautiful Gothic tower with a bay
chapel and the unique astronomical clock, where every hour between 9 am and
11 pm, 12 apostles appear. The Gothic revival eastern wing of the Town Hall was
destroyed on May 8, 1945 and was never rebuilt.

6 St. Nicholas Church in Malá Strana (Kostel sv. Mikuláše)

Addess: Malostranské náměstí, Prague 1

One of the most important buildings of Baroque Prague, with its dominant dome
and belfry. The interior decoration of the church is an outstanding example of
Baroque architecture. The dome has an impressive diameter of 20 m and an interior
height of over 49 m – the highest interior in Prague – and its monumentality is
enhanced by the ingenious play of light. During Mozart’s stay in Prague, he played
the organ here.

7 Dancing House

View this post on Instagram

The Dancing House or Fred and Ginger, is the nickname given to the building on the Rašínovo nábřeží (Rašín Embankment) in Prague. It was designed by the Croatian-Czech architect Vlado Milunić in cooperation with Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry on a vacant riverfront plot. The very non-traditional design was controversial at the time because the house stands out among the Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau buildings for which Prague is famous, and in the opinion of some it does not accord well with these architectural styles. The then Czech president, Václav Havel, who lived for decades next to the site, had avidly supported this project, hoping that the building would become a center of cultural activity. Gehry originally named the house Fred and Ginger (after the famous dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers – the house resembles a pair of dancers) but this nickname is now rarely used; moreover, Gehry himself was later "afraid to import American Hollywood kitsch to Prague", and thus discarded his own idea. source: wikipedia #pragueigers #dancinghouse #tancicidum #prague #praha #praga #prag #布拉格 #プラハ #프라하 #Прага #πραγα #modernarchitecture
