The Baroque era in Prague, which dominated the cultural scene mainly in the 17th and 18th centuries, left distinctive traces of its rich artistic heritage in the historic core of the city. Some of the most important Baroque monuments were built during this period and still adorn the city today. One of the top examples of Baroque architecture in Prague is the Church of St. Nicholas in Malá Strana, built by Kryštof Dientzenhofer and his son Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer. Prague’s Baroque sculpture has gained international recognition, especially thanks to the sculptures of Matthias Bernard Braun and his pupil Ferdinand Maximilian Brokoff, which decorate the city’s squares and parks. These sculptures give the impression of movement and dramatic expression typical of Baroque art. Overall, the Baroque in Prague not only enriched architecture and sculpture, but also left an unmistakable aesthetic imprint on the city’s historical panorama, making Prague one of Europe’s major centres of Baroque art.
