Wanderings Of A Canadian Loon Through The National Capital And Beyond
Wednesday, June 26, 2019
Picking up where I left off yesterday, here's more of the interior inside the Czech Embassy during Doors Open. Renovations have been done in keeping with the original design, and the details of the place are a pleasure to see.
Must be fascinating to go into these places. Love the look of those old staircases. Great post William!ReplyDelete
Though beautiful on one hand I suppose it´s very dark in winter or on grey days...ReplyDelete
Our bathroom has black tiles, the rest is all bright (not so shiny, though... sadly ;-)...)
I like their staircase, it's beautifully made.ReplyDelete
I love old buildings.ReplyDelete
Furnished with an austere style.ReplyDelete

Was it cool inside? Is it very warm in the Netherlands?
Yesterday were 39 degrees C ....

Interesting to visit places such as this. I like the staircase.ReplyDelete

very cool wood work. nice details. ( ;ReplyDelete
I love the hardwood floor. Simple and beautiful place!ReplyDelete
It's a good venue for an open door.ReplyDelete
A lovely opportunity to visit places you don't usually get to see. It must be like our "Open House" that we have in November. Great details inside.ReplyDelete

It would have been a fine dwelling inits day and makes a great embassy now!ReplyDelete
The staircase is beautiful.ReplyDelete
It looks a cosy, comfortable place, whilst still being grand enough for an embassy.ReplyDelete

Quite a building, and well cared for.ReplyDelete

They kept the richness of this interior. It's a pleasure to go in such a building.ReplyDelete
It's a beautiful building and very nicely restored.ReplyDelete
Details for sure! I love the balustrades, the stairwells, those book cases. Well restored woodwork. Great photos.ReplyDelete
Is the Czech Republic the only Embassy that opens its doors to the the public during Doors Open? This is a lovely old house put to good use. How nice that you were able to see inside.ReplyDelete

@Barbara: that it is.ReplyDelete
@Red: it is, yes.
@Kay: it really is.
@Joanne: so do I.
@Shammickite: in any given year there are a few embassies or ambassador residences that participate in the event, but this is the only one I got to this year.
@Angie: thank you!
