[kl-bogel] Prague. Along the Vltava River

Walk along the right bank of the Vltava River from Charles Bridge upstream to the Visegrad railway bridge, ie essentially to the edge of the central, historic part of town. As the distance from the center of the character development is changing, and you can see how the varied architectural styles of the late XIX century to the 1910s.

1. Getting a walk from Charles Bridge.

2. The building, constructed in neo-Renaissance in 1883. Initially it housed the Old Town pumping station. Since 1936, there dwells a composer Bedrich Smetana Museum.

3. Type in the same building with the left bank of the Vltava. In the center of the frame - Staromeststkaya water tower, built in 1489. In 1885, was rebuilt. The remaining houses can also quite a respectable age, their foundation is probably even XV-XVII centuries, but they were rebuilt, probably the last time in the XIX century.

4. Protection novodneniya - ie from all the major pieces, which carries over, so that the water tower and the station is not gouging.

5. At any time of day and year occupied by gulls. Go beyond the old town - a new city. In fact, New Town was founded in the XIV century, at the same time was built. But in the late XIX-early XX centuries it has undergone virtually complete reconstruction, so all the houses in the main the same period. We reach the bridge Yiraskova.

6. View to the center. Building the embankment at the site - mostly late XIX-early XX century - the eclectic with elements of Neo-Renaissance and Art Nouveau. So very richly decorated. Left - Lesser water tower, built in 1560.

7. Dancing House. That's what I Architecture 90!

8.

9. This form is to the center of the bridge Palacky. That does not hurt the eyes, even the Dancing House, and quite a fit.

10. Troyanov street.

11.

12. Note that the distance from the center decoration on houses is getting smaller, because they have built a little later.

13. View of the Lesser Town.

14. The embankment of the bridge Palacky.

15. Kind of the same bridge in the direction of the suburbs. This part is built up even later, probably in the late 1900s and early 1910s, and instead of richly decorated with eclectic, we see a fairly restrained neoclassicism.

16. It has all the 1910's, some homes (especially those that are left) - is pretty close to functionalism.

17. The last leg of the embankment in front of Visegrad building a railway bridge.

18. Embankment.

19. And here is the Visegrad bridge. Behind him a dense historical buildings are no longer going on, begins medial zone of the city, gradually turning into suburbs.
