The largest area is occupied by park
There used to be gardens in the past where we are standing now which in the 19th and 20th century turned into an urban park. The park currently occupies the main area of the square. The park went through an extensive reconstruction between 2001-2003 during which the green space was completely revitalized and new trees were planted and the park was newly paved  and therefore became a suitable place for hiking. Yet the park is not the only view point of Jiřího z Poděbrad Square. Greatest attention belongs to the local sacred monument which due to its unusual appearance attracts every passer-by.

Kostel Nejsvětějšího Srdce Páně (Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord) Jiřího z Poděbrad Square and Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord
It is a parish church Nejsvětějšího Srdce Páně. The church was built between 1929 – 1932 based on a project of a noted architect Josip Plečnik. We learned about this architect already during our walks through the Prague Castle Premises. The church was built in a very specific style – in modernist neoclassicism. It is used by Roman-Catholic Church these days. The church tower is remarkable, it raises over forty meters high. In the square tower which is closed by a huge copper dome and a tall cross at its top there are six bells inside. You can notice the glassed-in clock in wider parts of the tower whose dial has nearly eight meters in diameter.

Jiřího z Poděbrad Square and Stone fountain You can also spot a stone fountain in the park which is located in the south-west part of the square, not far from the metro exit. It is a fountain by sculptor Šedivý which was made according to a design of Hana Hübschmannová. The park is currently used especially for walking and also for relax. You can take a rest for instance close to the church on one of the benches. The park also serves as shortcut for pedestrians which shortens the way between the individual backstreets of the square.
