Long Description:

The pride of town Slavonice, complex of the Renaissance burgher houses, you can find in both main town's squares - the depicted cluster of five houses (N° 517, 518, 519, 522 and 522) is located in NW part of the Upper Square (Horné námestí).

The preserved complex of Renaissance burgher houses concentrated round both squares at Slavonice has become the basis of their exceptional architectural, artistic and historical value. Their imposing architecture, sophisticated handicraft design and artistic decoration demonstrate the welfare of the town and its burghers in the 15th and 16th centuries. The complex at Slavonice belongs to the most numerous in the Czech Republic. Houses have preserved on their original narrow Gothic frontage, with the external architectural expression corresponding to the visual concept of the Renaissance period, mainly from the time after the fire in the town in 1530.

Preeminent of them is the house N° 517, in the second floor of which there is a preserved former Protestant room of prayer with a set of paintings from 1568 depicting apocalyptic scenes.
