Prague Czech Republic The Old Town

 

The Old Town of Prague is the oldest part of the city, which was mentioned for the first time in 1091. Its name dates back to the 14th century, when the New Town was founded.

The square started its life as the central marketplace in Prague and during the next few centuries a host of elegant building, accomplished in Baroque, Romanesque, and Gothic styles, were raised around the market.

The Old Town Square is the centre of the Old Town, and the Church of Our Lady towers in the very heart of this square.

The Church of Our Lady was founded in 1385 and till nowadays it remains being a superfine Gothic cathedral with a Baroque interior and two spires, rising above the building of the church.

The Prague Astronomical Clock is another historical heritage of the Old Town Square, set on the southern wall of Old Town City Hall. It was constructed in 1410 and nowadays it consists of three main components: the astronomical dial, displaying the position of the Sun and Moon in the sky, and other astronomical objects.

"The Walk of the Apostles" is the second component, representing the Apostles. And the third one is a calendar dial with medallions, where the months are represented.

St. Nicholas Church is another pearl of the Old Town Square, which is a Baroque church, built in 1901. It is decorated with sculptures, accomplished by Antonin Braun.

A number of concerts of classical music are held in this church all the time and these are really popular venues among the Czechs.

At the centre of the Old Town Square is the Jan Hus statue, which was erected on the 500th anniversary of the reformer's death - on the 6th July, 1915.
