Baroque in Prague

Only the Baroque art proved capable of reincarnation that the medieval Prague underwent in the 17th century: a new panorama of castle ensembles and monasteries had been presented to the world then. The oldest Baroque structure in Prague is the Matthias Gate in the Prague Castle. The top artistic achievements belong to the architects Lurago, Santini, and father and son Dientzenhofer. Charming secular buildings and magnificent Baroque churches were to symbolize the triumph of the Habsburg dynasty and the Catholic Church. The vast Baroque complex of the Loreta church is a place of pilgrimage. The largest Baroque monument - the Saint Nicholas Cathedral - is an exquisite sight as well.

The Prague version of Baroque is full of sensuality and theatricality. From the very beginning of the 18th century, the slopes of Prague get an uplifting treatment of many garden terraces and picturesque parks, but the replanning of squares and streets had been carried out with the Gothic-Renaissance blend still in mind. A very special part of Prague's beauty is the river cutting through the whole city: many bridges hover above the river Vltava, as if crowning it.
