The Embassy of Denmark

Literature Night 2022 / Prague / The Embassy of Denmark

Thanks to the bright red colour of its doors and shutters contrasting with the white facade and opening onto the square, the building is recognizable from a distance. The house has been the Royal Danish Embassy’s seat since 1997; it is mentioned as early as the 16th century when it was called Na Korábě. In the second half of the 17th century, it was known as the House of the Black Noh (or Black Griffin) after its Renaissance reconstruction. It acquired its present form during the late Baroque reconstruction in the second half of the 18th century. Originally, there was an arcade on the ground floor, later rebuilt into shops.
