Yesterday's "House Insignia of the Day" Revealed - The Golden Key (U zlatého klíče)

The Golden Key (U zlatého klíče)

Originally a Renaissance house with Baroque and Classicist adaptations, it sits where a moat once divided Hradčany and the Prague Castle.  The house insignia, a richly adorned wrought key in a Baroque cartouche, is from 1844.

Today, the building houses The Hotel Aureus Clavis, a three-star hotel that was recommended by the New York Times as one of the top 100 hotels in Europe for under $150 per night.
