In the nineteenth century the demand for housing in Prague led to an explosion of building in this area, which lies just to the east and south of Wenceslas Square. Fine neo-classical detailing such as this is not at all unusual as one looks up at the many imposing apartments surrounding the square.
The first of each month is 'theme day' at City Daily Photo, which collates photos from all over the world under a single website, and this seemed an appropriate way of celebrating July's topic, the colour green. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants
The photo is also a suitable cue for announcing my new blog, The Prague Vitruvius, which arose from a slightly obsessive plan to catalogue the thousands of architectural elements such as this that adorn the streets of the Czech capital. If you like Vršovice Photo Diary but would like to explore more of the city, why not pay a visit?
