For example, in two steps from the Gothic Powder tower is the Municipal house with its mosaic facade, glass dome and numerous details of the work of genius Czech Mucha and around the corner old town square with the 15th-century town hall and old Church.Nicholas grew up the so-called “house of The Black Madonna”, which affects their broken faces. The world’s only street lamp in the style of cubism is surrounded by Baroque and Gothic buildings, and this neighborhood looks quite organic.
