Horni Krc - Upper Krc

Upper Krč was joined to the Great Prague in 1922 as XIV. Prague district belonging to the Nusle. We can still find old numbers from the years 1922 -1949 on some houses.

Upper Krc welcomes us with its neo-renaissance atmosphere of luxury villas ...

 ..... with beautifully carved balconies and arcades

Sometimes we are transferred to Tyrol

Next villa is hidden behind high walls in a park landscaped gardens

Others villas are reconstructed in the original color

This villa takes us back to sunny Italy

Beautiful functionalistic works were created in Upper Krc during the inter-war period. This villa was built in the 1930s for the famous hotelier Julis .... yes the one who owned  the large same name hotel on Wenceslas Square designed by architect Pavel Janak, who drew his inspiration from hotel Avion in Brno.

Villa Maria, as we can read above the entrancewas built neo-classicisical style, but unfortunately the windows are new ones

I was captivated by this villa with nice gables on a hill.

There used to be a small village long before all the villas were built,  only a few old houses have been preserved ...

... with a lovely rural corners
