  Art Nouveau / Jugendstil in Brno / Brünn
by globetrott
 
 

In some of the streets in the very centre of Brno / Brünn you may still see these great and beautiful Jugendstil / Art nouveau-street-lights dating back to the time, when Brno / Brünn was still part of the Austrian empire .
It certainly was not always the fact that these old things survived because people were fond of them , but mostly they were simply not replaced by modern ones, as long as they worked well and there was not enough money in Czechia to modernize everything.

Directions: I took this picture in Masarykova

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
