Pavements in the centre of Prague with mosaic patterns

Many pavements in the centre of Prague are decorated with mosaic patterns. Observant people can recognize 25 patterns, one of the most difficult one for tilers are stars. The Prague city council wants to replace all remaining asphalt paving in the historical city reserve with mosaic one.

Paving typical for the beginning of the 20th century will come back to streets Kaprova, Rytirska and Myslikova. Later on also to Revolucni and Parizska streets. Each street will get its own mosaic pattern.

Mosaic paving can be easily taken to parts and put together again. On the other hand, when one paving stone is broken, the whole mosaic is rather destroyed. The paving is also not resistant to heavy vehicles and some tourists steal paving stones as souvenirs.
