The House At The Holy Spirit

Architect: Není znám

Year of completion: renesance, přestavby v 18. a 19. století

The House At The Holy Spirit follows the paradox that in one of the busiest streets in Prague, there are numerous empty buildings. This four-story early Baroque building got its name from the house sign depicting a dove with outspread wings in a cloud-shaped frame, symbolizing the Holy Spirit. Although the building stands on Renaissance foundations, its significant Baroque transformation contributes to the harmonious character of Nerudova Street, which is known for its beautifully adorned Baroque bourgeois houses and palaces. However, there is a noticeable difference in the ground floor of the house, which underwent alterations in the 19th century during its last major renovation. It is also the only part of the building that is currently in use as a souvenir shop.
