Schönfeld House - Karlova Street 12/184, Old Town
Karlova Street 12/184, Old Town
The house was built around 1789 when three older houses (rebuilt in Renaissance and Baroque style, with Gothic foundations) were joined together and adapted in late Baroque style. The famous printing workshop and a publishing house of Knight Jan Ferdinand of Schönfeld used to be located there. One of the first Czech newspapers Schönfeldské c. k. pražské poštovské noviny (Schönfeld’s Imperial and Royal Prague Post newspapers) were published there in 1784-1824. Journalist, poet and politician K. Sabina (1813-1877) was also born in this house.
