New Town

The New Town, founded in 1348 by Charles IV, was carefully planned and laid out around three large central market-places: the Hay Market (Senovazne Square), the Cattle Market (Charless Square) and the Horse Market (Wenceslas Square). Twice as large as the Old Town, the area was mainly inhabited by tradesmen and craftsmen such as bkacksmiths, wheelwriths and brewers.
During the late 19th century, much of the New Town was demolished and completely redeveloped, giving it the appearance it has today.
The 750 meter long and 60 meter wide boulevard originates from the Charles IV period when it was used as a Horse market. In the upper part of the boulevard the statue of St. Wenceslas on his horse can be seen. It is the good king V?av, who was murdered by his brother over a thousand years ago, and who over the years has become the national hero. The artist J.V. Myslbek began to make this statue in the year 1884 and 36 years later it was finished

Nationale Theatre

A Neo-Rennaisance building of 1868-81, built to plans of J. Zitek. A fire destroyed much of the building in its first year of existence; it was reconstructed by architect Josef Schulz in 1883. The outside and inside decoration was completed by the artists of the National Theatre generation . M. Ales, F. Zenisek, V. Hynais, J. V. Myslbek, etc. The National Theatre is the outstanding Czech stage and its repertoire consists of drama, opera and ballet performances.

Jindřišská Tower

The building conversion in the historical tower according to the design of the architect Vrzal and its commercial use was completely in conformance with the requirements for the protection of monuments. The ferroconcrete, self-supporting construction does not in any way impinge on the stone masonry of the original bell tower.
It is quite simply unique and the only tower in Central Europe that has been opened up to the public for multipurpose use. It is furnished and fitted out to a standard appropriate for visitors in the third millennium (air-conditioning, modern lighting, staircase and express elevator, etc.) All of the café, restaurant and retail spaces in the tower have managed to preserve the characteristic values of the building and locality. There is a magnificent panoramic view of Prague from the tenth floor, which has remained unknown up to now. The tower is in the epicentre of all of Prague's renowned "one hundred spires", of which there are actually more than a thousand in total. For this reason there is also a museum of Prague spires on the sixth floor.


New Town Hall

A gothic complex of buildings from the late 14th and early 15th centuries, rebuilt in the renaissance style in the 16th century. It contains a tower with Our Lady Chapel, two gothic halls with ribbed vaults and a renaissance hall. During 1377 - 1784 the seat of the New Town authorities. On 30th July, 1419, the scene of the defenestration of the Catholic aldermen by Prague Hussites which mardked the begining of the Hussite revolution.

 

The Emausy Monastery

The Emmaus monastery with the Church of Our Lady and Slavic patron saints was founded by Charles IV in 1347 for Slavonic Benedictines. At the endof World War II it was burned by bombing. The two asymmetrical spires were finished in 1967.
