A Late Gothic masterpiece, now in ruins

Krakovec to the west of Prague conveys the unique atmosphere of the time of Wenceslas IV, a period of the florid Gothic style, of the famous Bohemian ‘Beautiful Madonnas’. Here there is architectural unity, originality and a certain "incomprehensible complexity" as well as great dimensional richness in the vaulting.
