The Czech lands have a magnificent architectural legacy with one of the densest concentrations of great houses in Europe. This talk will explore the development of the great house (zámek) from late mediaeval times through the Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-Classical and Romantic periods up to the modern movement of the 1930s. Please email to participate. The event is free but please consider making a donation at www.czechfriends.net/payments
