Every time you pass through a building that appears like no other, look up! You may discover frescos that grab your attention instantly and that will likely prompt you to want to see them again repeatedly.

The Maxim Gorky’s Colonnade is an icon of Marianske Lazne or Marienbad in my language. The Colonnade was built between 1888 and 1889 in the renowned style that is Baroque. In the summer during the evening hours, there are displays nearby of “singing fountains”. What a perfect scenery for SPA holidays!

Maxim Gorky Colonnade is the icon for the SPA building in the Region of Karlovy Vary. In fact, it’s the largest construction in Czechia! The steel structure was built in the neo-baroque style and was untouched by attacks during the Second World War. The ceilings of this building present a metaphor of humans’ desire to fly – the frescos of these are depicted in one of my other photographs from Mariánské Lázně.
