If you go from the Lesser Town Square to the Prague Castle, you will pass through beautiful scenic street Nerudova named Jan Neruda. He was a well-known Czech poet, who lived in the house for naming «At the Two Suns» (№ 47). All houses in Prague earlier observed signs until 1770, when it was introduced a new way of numbering. Houses on the street are set Nerudova heraldic beasts in signs houses. Climbing up the steep street, you will see the Red Eagle, Golden Horseshoe, green lobster or White Swan.
Many homes are now being used as cafes, wine bars and pubs. Several large baroque palaces are also located on this street, for example, Thun Palace (the residence of the Italian Embassy) and Morzin Palace (Embassy of Romania). Morzin palace facade is decorated with two huge statues of Moors supporting round balcony. Another impressive façade relates to Teatinskoy Church of the Virgin Mary. Theatine Order was founded during the Counter-Reformation.
Most of the buildings are two modern mark: a red room area, blue sign — street number. On the red signs also show the street name, and the name and number of the district. In the Czech Republic, the street number is written after the street name. Historical signs can also be seen in older areas. Some houses of the nineteenth century preserved Gothic script Czech / German marks, and in some houses the Baroque era signs with illustrations. Name of home: probably the best example is the decoration of the house of the family of violin makers in the form of three violins, U tří housliček (Rabštejnský dům) — Nerudova ulice 12/210, Malá Strana.
