History of the structure
The Baroque house known as U tří mouřenínů (At the Three Moors) was built in 1760 in Tržiště Street in the historical centre of Karlovy Vary. In 1759, a devastating fire broke out at the house and subsequently destroyed 224 buildings, including the Castle Tower and the formerKarlovy Vary Town Hall. In 1910, the house was rebuilt in Art Nouveau style according to the design of renowned Viennese architect Johann Friedrich Ohmann.
World-renowned German poet and writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe stayed at the house nine times between the years 1806 and 1820. A historical inscription with the text "Goethe walked through this door" is carved above the entrance door and a memorial plaque commemorating Goethe's stays is installed on the forefront
