About this title
It is no exaggeration to call Praha (Czech for Prague) one of the most beautiful cities in the world; few places possess such atmosphere and history, such magnificent art and architecture. Part of its allure comes from its extraordinarily eclectic layers: a single vista can encompass soaring Gothic turrets, voluted Baroque gables, colorful Art Nouveau mosaics and jutting Cubist facades. Its museums and galleries hold masterpieces from medieval paintings to the latest in contemporary art, and many are found in buildings as fascinating as their collections. This guide introduces travellers to Bohemian art and architecture in and around Prague. It provides a fascinating art historical context, explaining history, styles, patrons, and artists and suggests easy-to-follow trails that lead art lovers through different sections of the city and nearby towns.About the Author:
