Jewish Old Town  - Jewish Town Hall (Židovska radnice) Construction of synagogues was the most important to Jews because they were very religious. They did not take care for the construction of the town halls and similar administrative facilities because the major part of their lives took place in the synagogues just like the administration of the whole community or for instance education.

After the poor history the Jews started to prosper during the rule period of Rudolph II when Prague was the centre of the intellectuals, scientists and other interesting personalities who markedly contributed to the town´s prosperity.

Mordechai Maisel became one of the richest men who was at last lending his financial means to the entire imperial court . Due to him many Jewish monuments were built such as Maisel Town Hall or the Renaissance High Syangogue which also used to be called  „Radniční“ (Town Hall´s) because it was part of the Jewish Town Hall.

The already mentioned Maisel Town Hall was built by a noted architect Panacius Roder at the end of the 16th century. The new Late Baroque remodelling of the Town Hall was carried out by to the architect Josef Schlesinger in 1763. The architect Matěj Blecha extended the building later, namely in 1908, by adding the south wing.

  Tourist guide PRAGUE CITY LINE - Prague 1 (14,7 MiB)

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.
