Traditional Buildings in Kutná Hora

Since Kutná Hora is known for its medieval charm, I would be remiss if I only put up photos of its present-day curiosities. While I left photographing the major attractions to others (well, for the most part), here are some older buildings that seemed particularly interesting.

We liked these windows.

The house of the siamese-twin deer had a sort of dual-purpose appeal.

The rest of these are different views of the same house.

These are terrific pictures! (Not in the literal sense -- I just mean they're really good.) Now I want to go there. Under Susana's prodding (and our book contract), I've finally awakened to an appreciation of architecture. It must be (along with movie making, which involves such huge crews) the most sociological of the arts, just because of the way it has to be produced. I mean, it reveals the most about the society where it was built.

Architecture is definitely one of the particular strong points of the Czech Republic.

NO kidding Karla, I love the turret, and that whole house is amazing. Brings back memories. Last year on this date I was on my way to Praha! Big deep sigh.
