After opening the house The House of the Black Madonna
We will transfer to the year 1912 now when the house was opened. There was a pleasant wine restaurant in the lower floor, a café was above it and there were also shops with drapery in the second floor. Anyway, the café was not opened for too long because according to the records it ceased to exist already in the ´20s of the 20th century. There were offices in the floor above and the appartments were located in the top floor. The fans of Cubism really came to their own here because the furniture and the interior were all Cubist.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (14,7 MiB)

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.
