Architect: Není znám

Year of completion: dům U Minuty 15.století, dům U Zlatého rohu 17. století

In close proximity to the Prague Astronomical Clock, hidden between two historic buildings, lies the inner courtyard of the Scout Institute and Prague Creative Center. Inside the buildings of U Minuty and U Zlatého rohu, a space for gatherings, cultural events, and the headquarters of several organizations has been created. However, culture did not always reside here. The originally Gothic, now Renaissance-style, U Minuty house with its famous sgraffito facade used to be a pharmacy, and Franz Kafka even lived there for a while. The neighboring U Zlatého rohu house is built on medieval foundations that were later merged into a Renaissance palace. Its Baroque appearance was added about a hundred years later, and in 1801, the house was complemented by some Neoclassical details, such as a polygonal oriels on the corner of Malé and Staroměstské Square. The latest modifications according to the design by architect Pavel Janák took place in the late 1930s, and the changes are mainly visible in the upper floors.
