All about The House of the Black Madonna more read here

Cubism uses geometrical shapes in its architecture. This comes from the architect’s conviction that the basic geometrical form is the cube.

The House of the Black Madonna was originally a multifunctional building with shops on the ground floor and offices, flats and the famous Orient coffee house with its cubist furniture on the floors above.

At present the building is a national monument and houses a collection of Czech cubist paintings, furniture, sculpture and architects’ plans.

The name of the building comes from the Black Madonna house symbol on the corner, kept behind gold Renaissance bars.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (unknown)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.
