1848 Block – 3 + 1 flat – Lesser Quarter UNESCO zone

1848 Block – 3 + 1 flat – Lesser Quarter UNESCO zone

The block where my apartment is was built in mid 19th century and is located at the Lesser Quarter - Mala Strana in the UNESCO zone of Prague below Petrin Hill. The whole block is protected and has kept the original design. It has a stucco decoration on the façade, in the entrance hall and also above the staircase.

Unigue atmosphere

The flat is situated on the third floor, there is a newly built lift available. The flat itself is 85 m2 large, 795 sg. ft. with high ceilings (3,5 m, 11 ft), it has parquet floors in all rooms. Windows on one side overlook Petřín Hill, The Hunger Wall and Ujezd, whilst on the other side you can see a sunny courtyard.

The apartment offers four rooms – two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom and WC. There is a big central hall that takes you directly to the living room, white bedroom, kitchen and bathroom.

Beauty and comfort

Original ceramic stoves provide heat in each apartment. Nowadays it is only my apartment that still retains the ceramic heating in the living room (now purely for decoration). I also kept most of the original architectural details alive – a decorative wooden door and window frames with skillfully forged cranks, decorative bars or stained glass doors to preserve the unique atmosphere. I also carefully decorated the flat using more modern pieces of furniture, combined with antique pieces. You can relax after a long day walking in the city in a comfortable armchair (your feet will appreciate the practical stool), or fall asleep on a huge orange sofa with big soft pillows in the living room. Below the huge windows there is a large glass table, whereas the coffee table sits front of the sofa. The sunny yellow kitchen contains a big wooden table and cushioned comfortable chairs. It is fully equipped (an electric oven, a gas cooker, a dish washer, washing machine, and fridge with a freezer and kettle.

Green and white bedroom

The green bedroom is accessible from the living room, there is a very large and sofa bed with luxurious soft green pillows. There is also a big wooden table with an antique armchair and a wooden shelf (originally for manuscripts used in a bureau from 70 years ago).

There is a queen sized bed in the white bedroom, white wardrobe and marble antique decorative table with an original wooden carved chair and a linocut of the Prague Castle and Hradčany scenery.
