Ovocný trh 567/15: U České orlice

‘Mír a štěstí buď pod touto střechou’: ‘May peace and happiness reign under this roof’ AD 1897.

The House of the Bohemian Eagle (U České orlice) stands in the historic fruitmarket, near to the House of the Black Madonna. It was constructed in neo-renaissance style by Guido Bělský to a design by architect Friedrich Ohmann. Its most notable feature is the superb neo-gothic oriel window surrounded by sgraffito (designed by Mikoláš Aleš) combining the emblems of the Czech Kings and the Margraves of Moravia.
