Today, the Stone Bell House on the Old Town Square is perceived as one of the few authentic medieval houses in Prague. However, its current look is the result of recent reconstruction, which began in the 1970s and took almost twenty years. On the outside, the stone façade was uniformly restored in Gothic style; inside, the remains of the medieval era are limited to a few areas with fragments of preserved, restored or retouched paintings and sculptural decorations. The illustrated guide outlines the building development of the house and the restoration of the historic look of the palace, and maps the preserved architectural and artistic elements.
