  • This is the balcony of the Velvet Revolution. However, at this time, balcony hiding around trees, it is difficult to understand. Look carefully! Marks & Spencer is building balcony!

  • My favorite Vaclavake about three dozen different miniatures houses. Almost every one of them, IMHO, really deserves a separate post on vast expanses of TripAdvisor. Almost every ... But I never would have thought that one of the tourist must see the Czech capital will be considered relatively modest outwardly structure "zatesavsheesja" between berserk Vaclavaka "stone"-"House of Shupicha" (Šupich houses) and the book is at magazom krasivoshnom Vilovom House (dům Wiehlův)-House No 36-the so-called "Building the publishing house" Melantrih ", built in 1911-1912 by architect Bedřich Bendelmajera (Bedřich Bendelmayer) in the style of late modernism. By the way, mentioned in krjaknulo safely publishing wave of the economic cataclysm at the end of the twentieth century, leaving the building its name. In principle, there is nothing special about the building, IMHO, not-well, except for lovers of rock paintings of "960035", which by virtue of special knowledge and with a good view can appreciate iPhone is located on the left-right predkrajnih Windows the sixth floor four beautiful artist Vratislav Mayer, famous author of Sgraffito (if you believe the book pamphlets "the political and social history of the party moderate progress in the framework of the law," Jaroslav Hasek). Well, caryatids, nevesjololikie support on their fragile female shoulders balcony. Vooooo! BALCONY! Thanks to this very balcony building this and got some tourist "profit". Supposedly it is on him in November 1989 Alexander Dubchak, chief proponent of the Prague Spring, and Vaclav Havel, then President of Czechoslovakia, and not just one of the initiators of the "civil forum", however, welcomed thousands of working demonstrations in support of students, held at Vaclavake. And it turns out that "Melantrihovyj" the House can be called "home to one of the balcony", because there is nothing more special, architectural and attractive it is.

  • I don't know what this object people liked? Apparently, only the fact that at one time he was proclaimed some purely political slogans. -Capitalism forever! -Czech Republic Czechs paws! -Slovakia, live how you want. And the like. This I'm exaggerating, of course, now. Because speech Václav Havel as the people's President, pronounced the right. From his own point of view. Politically correct. But their meaning was in General is such as I and passed. In my opinion, the collapse of the country, albeit peacefully, a voluntary, will still collapse. But enough about politics. I do not, therefore, will be assessed solely travel aspects of the attractions. Wenceslas square. Big wide Avenue. Probably because he has served all his life for pushing speeches to the masses. Stand in the middle. Face to Nacionolnomu Museum, zatjanutomu in the blue building blinders. Look at the monument to Prince on horseback. Watching. We admire. Then abruptly turn face to the right. -See, on the roof of a building inscription "Mark & Spenser"? Us there. In fact now it is a mixture of hotels and shop. On it we resembled. Space is big. Typical clothing. There is a discount, but not at all. Yes, we are not for clothes. Look on the façade. The House, like the House. Relatively simple, in comparison with the rest of Prague. But at the level of the third floor, almost along the entire length of the balcony is arranged. Here he is precisely the attraction. If b is accidentally stumbled on Tripadvizore note about him, nor in life would have thought that such it really important. Looks like an ordinary. Empty. Simply grate against the background of long and identical Windows. And, as I understand, it is not allowed to anyone. Memory, apparently, about ancient events cherish.
