 Prague 2 - The Faust´s house (Faustův dům) Herewith, there is not many buildings, which would remember the founding of a square itself, Faust´s house represents obverse. As a gothic medieval palace, it was already built in second half of 14th century and in that time belonged opavian dukes from nearby přemyslov line. And just in this period, as it is mentioned by several sources, it was occupied by legendary doctor Johannes Faust.

After year 1420 it lapsed to ownership of novoměstský reeve Peter Kameník, but already in 1434 it lost its owner and stood on very scrubby. Mr.Prokop, counsellor writer of Nové Město, had merit in its repair. Then, the house changed several owners until it was bought by Edward Kelley in 1590, english alchymist of court of emperor Rudolf II.

In 18th century the object became possession of old czech vladyc stock Mladots from Solopysk. The very first from Mladots, Ferdinand Antonín, was interested in chemical and alchymic attempts a his son Josef Petr was partial to mechanical toys a technical works. Mladots intensified legends, that in the house are hatched a plot and magics. Pshaw, so as not! When old Mladot mixed various chemical substances, the house sheded variety of sounds, which where accompanied with sceneries of various colors, which could be seen also for people in the street. This was why citizens avoided this house with big arc and for that reason many of myths and legends are embroidered.

 Prague 2 - The Faust´s house (Faustův dům) In middle of 19th century where built up two new court wings and by it the palace was adapted to needs of Private institution for deaf-mute, which bought it in 1838. In that time the house was already commonly called the Faust´s and to eccentric inhabitants, living in it, joined chaplain from neighbour church of Jan Nepomucký Na skalce, Karl Jaenig. He is was realy eccentric, in nowadays it would be said defective individuum. He namely owned human skull a part of gallows-tree, used to sleep in casket a his room was ornated with black epitaphs.

In 1902 the Faust´s house bought General hospital, but to the end of 60th was full of tenants. During bombing in february 14th 1945, it was stricken drop bomb, which broke through roof and slumped down to cellar, but didn´t explode. It is said, that the hole, which the bomb left behind, could be seen many years yet. And again, it was reason for speculations. Wasn´t it exactly this hole, through which devil flew with Faust? Doctor Faust, that is, subscribed to devil for richness and knowledges. And everybody knows how fell it out: devil flew away with Faust through roof.

pha2-faustuv-dum110522_002 Another one of the legends tells, that a poor student visited, looking for accomodation. He entered the first room, full of furniture. He set down to a chair and fell asleep. In the morning he entered second and third room. Everywhere it was full of furniture. In the third room was a hole in roof a stairs too. When stepped up the stairs, they shrinked in by themselves. He walked through room, and when wanted go back, the stairs stretched out. He continued viewing next rooms. In one big room he found out a taler in saucer. He took it and went to take some food. When he came back, set down to chair and fell asleep. In the morning he again found out taler, which he added to changes from previous day. Such way he got taler every morning. After several days he already had on new dress. He got used to comfort a started to buy better things.

But the one taler was not enough already and wanted more and more.

Once he was again lashing out the money and invited his friends to a pub. Then they wanted look round him, but he estoped them. From that day nobody have seen him. His friends went to look for him into the house. In bedroom they found out an old hole in roof, a lot of fresh blood and inklings of struggle. The friends run away aghasted about how died their friend. Horror!
