Sladkovského náměstí Sladkovský Square
Sladkovského náměstí was founded in 1890 in a place where originally used to be an estate called Reismanka. It got its name after its owner Jan Reisman of Riesenberg, the contemporary Lord Mayor of Prague. The name Sladkovského is related to a noted Czech politician and journalist Karel Sladkovský (1823-1880). Karel Sladkovský actively participated in the revolution of 1848 as a spokesman of students. Sladkovský was buried in the neighbouring Olšanské hřbitovy (Olšany Cemeteries).

Kostel svatého Prokopa (St. Prokop´s Church)
Kostel svatého Prokopa (St. Prokop´s Church) is the main view point of Sladkovského náměstí. Its construction started on October 30th, 1898 on the occassion of the fiftieth anniversary of Francis Joseph I´s reign. It took five years to finish the church. One of the most interesting parts of the church is its seventy meters high tower. The church was built in the Neo-Gothic style and there are many rarities hidden inside of it. One of them is a little sculpture of Madonna with Baby Jesus from the 15th century or a painting by a significant Czech master Karel Škréta.

Sladkovský Square Gymnázium Karla Sladkovského (Gymnasium of Karel Sladkovský)
Besides St. Prokop´s Church the square takes pride in another significant construction. We refer to Gymnázium Karla Sladkovského (Gymnasium, or Grammar School, of Karel Sladkovský) which is rated among the oldest secondary schools in Prague. The education at the seven-year grammar school started on September 20th, 1897 but it moved to the new Neo-Renaissance building in Sladkovského Square only two years later. The construction was built according to a project of architect Jindřich Motejl. It took several years to fulfill the entire capacity of the school, i.e. fourteen classrooms, and there were five hundred students in total.The real school was transformerd into eight-year grammar school in 1943.

Noted personalities of the grammar school
The grammar school building of Karel Sladkovský is also connected with the names of many important personalities. One of them was for instance Antonín Svojsík who was working here. Svojsík was not just an excellent schoolman, but above all the founder of Czech Scauting. Professor Albert Pražák who was the President of Česká národní rada (Czech National Council) in 1945 was another important personality. Besides the professors the grammar school has educated many other noted personalities, such as the famous Czech actor Jaroslav Marvan or writer and journalist Ondřej Neff.
