Design by Mathey, fresco by Wenzel Lorenz Reiner:




St. Salvator, directly on the kings road, built by Lurago and Kanka. Sadly the church is closed, you can only see the inside through a glass door... and I forgot to take a pic anyway. Most tourists ignore this church too, although the entry is only 10m aside of the kings road:

View towards lesser town and Hradschin. I tried to take a few pics of the Hradschin and St. Vitus two weeks ago, but there are so many tourist, frankly, it's horrible. Maybe during winter...:




This could be the coat of arms of Sigismund, emperor of the HRE and king of Bohemia. The two small eagles are the coat of arms of both Silesias, the bull on the right belongs to Lower Lusatia, the golden wall to Upper Lustia, my home:

There's only one reason Prague is my favourite European city, and all these photos have confirmed my decision.

AMAZING PICS!

Karasek - you have posted the best collection of Prague photos I have ever seen - great work!!
Yes, the masses can be really annoying but as you rightly say they tend to stick to a few places and leave the rest of the city for the more discerning to enjoy so perhaps we should not be too critical of them, they do us a great favour!!
Walked over the "Charles "Bridge immediately after a thunder-storm - not a person in sight- unbelievable, never thought I would see that!!!

Some more pics.
Old street sign in German and Czech. These signs are much more common on the Lesser side:




Now we visit the quarter to the south of the kings road. Most tourists ignore these narrow streets.
This nice, small baroque house already has a new roof:

About month ago the "new" street between the square and Lilová street was reopened after 60 years - it's called Zlatá ulice (not to confuse with Zlatá ulička at the Castle).

Hello guys,

I'll just add some pictures of the interior of one of the houses that Karasek posted, more precisely this one:

Quote:


It is a fin-de-sičcle building from 1890, not far away from the Old Town Square and the Spanish Synagogue.

The quality can't keep up (at all) with Karasek, but maybe you'll get an impression.

We enter the building, behind us is the iron entry door. The garbage bins and mailboxes are in this hall:


We're looking back to the entry, the floor is covered with pretty but dirty mosaics. The walls are plain white, maybe covering colourful paintings:


The ceiling in the entry hall, white as well.


The staircase, to the left there is an elevator from the 70ies:


Looking down the stairs from the first floor:


A flat door:


A door inside a flat, with nice flower motives in the glass:


Tiles in the toilet, originals from 1890:


And the hall in a flat, with an excruciatingly beautiful orange linoleum floor:


Special - the narrowest alley in Prague, complete with pedestrian traffic light. It leads from U lužického semináře to the river:

Geil. Fantastic thread, as I already stated multiple times.


Thanks for contributing the interiors of the Jugendstil building here. Really interesting.
Perhaps someday it gets some luxury renovation and more of the interior gets its former splendour.

As I already said in the German Prague-thread, they are waiting for the last family to move out (which will happen eventually due to a substantial increase of the rent), then they will renovate it all and rent it again as offices or to rich foreigners. Or so the current inhabitants suspect.

The demand for offices in such houses is long gone and rents in the city centre are stagnating or decreasing for years so I would say the owner will not be as much satisfied as he might think.

Fantastic thread and photos to go with it! Prague is beautiful and I really want to visit it soon. Love the little passageways between buildings like that in the last picture too.
