Where the Czech...? #52

Does anybody know where and what this building is?

Tough one this week, hey?

Got me stumped!

Je ne ski, pas

Yes a tough one. From all of the flags and the balconies, I would guess it is a hotel or maybe a spa. I can almost read a name in the railing under the flag. Interesting style, perhaps from the turn of the century?

You're on the right track, Michael S, but I think Esigodini has beaten you to the answer.
I know it mightn't look like an answer, but perhaps he was doing a cryptic crossword at the time and got the two puzzles mixed up.
Can anyone work it out from "Je ne ski, pas"? You don't need to understand French...

A reader too shy to sign in and leave a comment (let's call him Doogie) wrote and says it's 'Jesenik Spa'.

And he's right. It's the Priessnitz sanatorium building on the edge of Jesenik, in Northern Moravia.

The points go to Esigodini, though; sorry Doog.
