The House at the Stone Bell

PHA-Dům u kamenného zvonu07

The House at the Stone Bell on the south side of the square is perhaps the most attractive building on the Old Town Square. It was probably the property of Queen Eliška Přemyslovna, the wife of King John of Luxemburg and was originally a Romanesque structure, proof of which are the 12th-century walls in the cellars.

In the early 14th century the house was transformed into a splendid Gothic Palace with two floors, Gothic halls and two chapels. Frescoes from the early 14th century have survived to this day, and in the parts of the ground floor accessible to the public the remains of the original carved stone decoration can be seen featuring a king and queen on the throne and two armed figures

The house gets its name from the obvious house symbol, a stone bell which protrudes out into the square from the corner of the building. Today this is a replica of the bell. It’s generally thought that the bell serves as a reminder of the events of 1310, when Queen Eliška Přemyslovna’s chaplain gave a signal to the army of King John of Luxemburg and his followers in the town to open the gates, avoiding the taking of the Old Town by force.

In 1333 Charles IV stayed at the house when he found Prague Castle completely deserted and abandoned on his return to Prague from France and Italy.

  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.
