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.
