Architecture In The Czech Republic

The Czech Republic has a rich architectural heritage, both old and new. From the medieval castles of Prague to the contemporary designs of Jan Kaplicky, the country has a wealth of architectural styles. From the Byzantine-Slavic style of the 11th century Kutna Hora to the Neo-Baroque of the 19th century National Theatre, the country has catered to a variety of tastes and times. The 20th and 21st centuries have seen a surge of modern design, with some of the country's most iconic buildings designed in the last decades, such as the dancing house and the National Technical Museum. Contemporary Czech architecture is often characterized by an emphasis on simplicity and minimalism, with a focus on light and texture. Materials are often used to accentuate the surrounding environment, and modern buildings often feature unique shapes and forms, with some of the most impressive buildings being constructed in the last few years.
