Description Change this

Hotel Juliš is located in the heart of the Golden City on renowned Wenceslas Square, Prague. Designed by Pavel Janák, the building represents a bright example of the 1920s' Constructivist architecture.

The hotel with passageway is built on a narrow lot. On the lower floor was a terraced café with a cake shop inspired by the Hotel Avion in Brno designed by Bohuslav Fuchs.

Pavel Janák said: "I wanted to create a building that was not crowded and had the uniformity of the usual Prague cafés. I was therefor very glad that I succeeded in opening out the interior with a big window - probably the biggest of its time - facing the busy atmosphere of Wenceslas Square."

"Designed by Josef Gočár, the building represents a bright example of the 1920s' Constructivist architecture" Designed by Pavel Janák, but you already know that, just a mistake I suppose.
