Trojský zámek was built in the XVII century for Count Wenceslas Sternberg. The count wanted to make a beautiful castle that would impress the Habsburgs. The main stairs near the exit to the French garden, adorned with statues of Olympian gods and other baroque figures are considered the most beautiful sights of the castle. The interior of the castle is distinguished by lush décor. This is particularly true about the main hall of the building that is decorated by portraits of the Habsburg dynasty from top to the very bottom. The Prague Castle is considered the branch of the Prague State Museum. It exhibits a large collection of glass items in the baroque style and paintings of Czech painters of the XIX century. Trojsky Botanical Gardens and the Prague Zoo are located a bit further.
This is a nickname that has been given to one of office buildings in Prague. The unusual shape of this building has always been causing a lot of discussions. The architects of this unique architectural sight were the Czech architect Vlado Milunich and the Canadian Frank Gehry. The house looks a bit like a dancing couple. Therefore, initially the house was called “Ginger and Fred” after famous actors and dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. The roof of the house is occupied by a French restaurant, which offers a wonderful panorama of the city.
