Welcome to Andaz Prague, a project we had the pleasure to curate and collaborate with local and international artists. Together we bring in a blended mix of different artistic mediums and artworks, which all are simply unique and inspired by a fine selection of myths and legends from Prague. Throughout the hotel, you are invited to walk and experience local stories and fairytales interpreted through each artist individually. Experience Prague‘s rich history, and the pulsating heart for art that each artist amplifies.
Inviting you, on a journey through Prague’s stories and legends. Together with all the artists and our team, we have developed a walk for you to connect with the surrounding myths and sights while wondering around the hotel. A place that combines the history and tales of local sights: What happened and what was believed – the real and the unreal merge into a dream.
With its rich history, picturesque cobblestone streets, the Vltava River and Charles Bridge, Prague has always been the setting for fascinating myths and legends. Whether the story of the Golem of Prague and, why Prague today still stands on the same location once prophesied by the Slavic princess Libuše – the legends in this town are centuries old. Yet, they are still being passed on from generation to generation and contributing to the magic of this unique medieval town. The renowned Czech writer Franz Kafka is deeply linked to Prague. Kafka was known for combining real situations with the unreal and, putting even the most unimaginable thoughts into a real light/perspective. Most importantly however, is Alois Jirasek, one of the most famous Czech prose writer in the era before World War I. This collection reminisces upon his Old Czeck Legends, translating them into bite-sized English vignettes. Inspired by both Kafka and Jirasek you will experience the myths, legends as well as the history behind Prague in a dreamlike way and its ancestral stories as if they were real.
