Prague has examples of architecture that spans over one thousand years. It was spared from heavy war damage and now displays so much beauty that viewers are inspired at every corner.
Both domestic and business properties in Old Prague are heavily decorated with large slabs of granite, carved wood, stone statues and painted plaster decorations on an enormous scale. Doorways span 20 feet high and surrounding it is art that tells a story or depicts a religious tale. Before the 18th century Prague's homes had no numbered addresses so each house had to be identified by its name. The door entrances influenced by the dramatic baroque style became away of identifying an address and this style of design continued throughout the years.
