Thursday Doors: Use the Interior!

This is part 1 of a series of doors in Prague, Czechia. I don’t know yet how many installments there will be in this series because, to my surprise, I think that Prague has the most interesting doors of any city I have been to so far.

Exterior

The owners of these doors make the inside more interesting than the outside, and then leave them open to show it off. Especially when food is involved.

From these doors I learned about a Czech pastry called trdelnik.

While these are quite common in Prague, they are originally called  kurtsoskalacs and come from Szekely Land, Transylvania. There are big models of the pastries hanging over the doors in Prague, even as the interiors of the doors advertise additional treats.

The following door caught my eye because of the word “Unitaria.” I wondered if it had to do with the Unitarian church in Prague. But probably not, because there is also a Blacklight theater in the building, which is what you get when you google it. The Unitarian congregation in Prague is located elsewhere.

Finally, this was my favorite of the painted interior doors, a souvenir and trinket shop with whimsical representations of the city itself.
