Doors of Prague
With its beautiful architecture, cobblestone streets and its plethora of hidden places of interests, Prague is a wonderful city to visit for the aimless wanderer. And if you’re someone like me, you’ll love taking photos of all the little features that make the Bohemian city so whimsical. Among the lot are Prague’s courtyards, its narrow winding streets, its lanterns and a favorite of mine – the capital city’s doors.
The Czech capital’s buildings are adorned by some of the most gorgeously ornate doors I’ve ever laid eyes on. Indeed, the doors of Prague are both colorful and captivating to look at. Each one ranges in style with Art Nouveau, Baroque and Neo-Classicalism being the most popular.
While walking through the city right after visiting the John Lennon Wall, I came across many Prague doors which called out to me and beckoned me to take my camera out and start snapping away. Among the lot were a few plainer doors with bold colors. A few common ones I noticed were blue, green, red and yellow.
Other doors in the city appeared more rustic in nature. Namely, brown doors bearing carvings and medieval metal adornments as accents. Below are a few photos I took of the doors of Prague. Have a look and let me know which is your favorite one and why.
