Description

The Golden City has always been one of the most important architectural centers of Europe. The architectural history of Prague reached its first peak during the Gothic period. The Renaissance and Baroque period are still very much in evidence today as part of the cityscape. After the Habsburg monarchy influenced Jugendstil, the national identity finds its expression in the architectonically unique Prague Cubism. In the 1920s and 30s the city maintained contact with the International Modern Style, while after World War II the socialist building culture held sway. After the end of the cold war the city made the connection to contemporary architecture in the form of extraordinary buildings. The chronologically sequence and the high-quality photos graphically display the typical characteristic of each era. In addition to several hundred individual buildings, significant ensembles as well as the influential architects of Prague and each epoch are portrayed.
