Prague, Czech Republic is renowned for it’s architecture. Sites like Cernin Palace, Saint Vitus’ Cathedral, Old Town Hall, the Charles Bridge and the National Museum in Wenceles Square are just some of it’s most iconic landmarks. The city itself is a museum showcasing countless different styles including Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and even Rococo.
Naturally, you could easily pass by hours walking and taking photos … I certainly have! The wonderful thing is that even when you deviate off the “beaten path” and make your way down a side street, you’ll come across buildings accented with small but beautiful architectural details.
I had a chance to visit Prague recently and spied this lovely terrace balcony while taking an evening walk.
Imagine if your flat had such a terrace, decorated with colorful flowers and flanked with ornate statues? Sigh … this terrace makes the view from my own flat in Berlin seem like such an ugly bore, as it looks out into a courtyard that is home to a giant crane and various piles of construction materials. Our building is currently having it’s roof repaired!
If you’d like to see photos of the city on a snowy Christmas night, check out my blog post called Prague by Night, Is a Romantic Delight.
