Long Description:

Depicted beautiful door decorates Bank of the Czechoslovak Legion (Legiobanka), located on Na porící street in the historic centre of Prague, which is a stunning example of Rondo-Cubist architecture.

Designed by architect Josef Gocár, the same architect who designed the famous House at the Black Madonna and its onsite Grand Cafe Orient (both superb examples of Cubist architecture), the Legiobanka was built in 1921–1923 and is an important example of Czech nationalism in architecture. The facade of the building depicts the Czech Foreign Legion and the battles in Siberia during WWI; the facade was made by world famous Czech sculptor Otto Gutfreund. The Rondo-Cubist Legiobanka boasts a beautiful exterior (even down to the corresponding pavement) and interior and features lovely wooden doors, intricate wrought iron railings and scrollwork, wall paintings, an abundance of marble, and an impressive dome on the second floor.
