...secrets of dancing Prague...
During this tour, partly on foot, partly by vehicle, we travel through the twentieth century, starting with the sensuous art-for-art’s sake Art Nouveau/Secession style, most notably the Main Station, the Municipal House, and the houses on Paris Boulevard. Prague is the only city where cubism made its way to architecture, and we will stop for a coffee in Prague’s famous cafe, where the piano, the decorations and the crockery itself are all in cubic forms.
You will have a chance to learn about some interwar architectural styles such as functionalism and Soviet-inspired constructivism. Observe certain monolithic exponents from the communist – socialist realist period, as well as some post-communist curiosities such as Frank Gehry’s Dancing House, inspired by the gyrating figures of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
