An example of an early Art Nouveau building in Prague is the former Hotel Central built 1898-1900, now the K+K Hotel Central at Hybernská. This 4*-boutique hotel in the city centre of Praque is located within a short walking distance from the Main Train Station (Hlavní nádraží) and Old Town Square.
