Baroque Doors in Prague
Baroque was introduced in Prague after 1620 mainly by the Jesuits who built in Prague
and elsewhere in Bohemia many churches, schools, hospitals which followed the pattern of the similar
buildings the Jesuits had in Rome. The use of curved lines and stucco decorations soon became a common
feature of all buildings, including relatively small houses. This style lasted until the end of the XVIIIth century.
