Long Description:

Depicted late-Baroque entrance portal decorated by bear relief is one of key architectural elements of Baroque Nedvedovský dum (Nedvedovský House) in historic centre of town Slaný.

Nedvedovský House (house N°9), two-storeyed Baroque burgher house, is result of principal reconstruction and joining of two older Gothic-Renaissance buildings in 1779. The house is interesting by preserved Renaissance corner oriel and also by beautiful Baroque entrance portal decorated by stone relief with bear (name of house is derived from Czech word for bear: medved or nedved) and the date of principal rebuilding. The house was reconstructed also in 1893 and this date is in small shield holded by the bear.
