The Langweil model of Prague
The Langweil model of Prague as a three-dimensional illustration of the city is a unique work of art unlike any other in the world.
The model made from paperboard on a wooden construction was created in 1826-1837 by Antonín Langweil, an assistant at the university library in the Klementinum.
The model contains over two thousand buildings from the historic heart of Prague in a perfect and realistic state with all the structural and decorative details of the facades.
Approximately half of the buildings in the model were later demolished or radically rebuilt in the real Prague.
