pha1-staromestske-namesti007 Old Town Square(czech:Staroměstské náměstí) in Prague is according to many tourists the most beautiful square of Europe. Tourists visit the square basically because of Orloj (Astronomical Clock) to watch the apostles move. However, the square is much more interesting and mysterious, it has a unique and very long history. It had been witness of numerous historical events and it is still the central point of all events in Prague.

On this site you will find the introduction of this most significant Prague square. We will introduce its history to you, you will learn about its most remarkable monuments and houses and finally we will focus on Prague Orloj.

If you click on the article sequenced at the bottom of this site you will get to the menu where all the landmark information related to the article is concentrated. The menu contains not just description of the selected place or landmark but also the photo gallery and map of the whole square.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (unknown)

Prague 1 still belongs to one of the most attractive parts of the whole Prague. Probably nowhere else you can find such a concentration of historic monuments and places where the history and romance of bygone times are all around you. Hardly anywhere you can walk on the same paths where were walking Franz Kafka, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and the Golem of Prague.

Pha1 - Spanelska synagoga a Zidovske muzeum008The youngest synagogue of the Prague´s Jewish Town Josefov was built at the crossroads of the streets Dušní and Vězeňská between 1867-68. Just like some other synagogues also this one was built in the Moorish style according to the project of Ignác Ullmann and Josef Niklas. The construction was performed in place of the former oldest synagogue called The Old School or „Templ“ which according to the extant historical sources existed already in the 12th century. It was called „school“ because the synagogues used to serve as educational institutes for the inhabitans of the Jewish community. » More »
