Cultural Heritage in Prague 1
The “Cultural Heritage in Prague” seminar focuses on significant places and monuments. Together we will observe the famous Quarters (Hradčany, Lesser Quarter, Old Town, and Josefov) and discover the beauty of architecture from the Romanesque and Gothic periods, Renaissance and Baroque styles, and Historicism, Secession, and Cubism. Throughout specific tasks, students will learn how to describe and classify architectonical elements into specific periods and will learn how to understand the principles of decorative systems. Students will work in small teams and prepare answers to specific questions concerning the broader historical context of cultural heritage and monument care. Through worksheets and accompanying materials, they will learn to describe and classify monuments based on formal elements. Classes will take place inside the city, in the gardens, in front of the facades, or inside the churches and other cultural monuments. The seminar is intended for art history students from the daily study program of KTF, so as for students of the Erasmus+ from all disciplines and different fields of study programs from CU. If you are interested in cultural heritage and would you like to know more about urbanism and architectural ensembles of outstanding quality in Prague, you are sincerely welcome to attend this seminar.
