Unique premises of the town hall Prague - Old Town Square - Old Town Hall - Brozik Hall (czech: Brožíkova síň
In the 2nd storey of the town hall you will find the so-called Jiříkova and Brožíkova síň (Jiřík Hall and Brožík Hall). The first of them was called after King Jiří of Poděbrady who was elected King of Bohemia in 1458 there. On the walls you can view 15th-century paintings. Brožíkova síň currently serves as assembly hall. It received its current appearance in 1910.

The hall is remarkable due its size because it occupies an area as high as two storeys. The room had been called according to Václav Brožík, the author of the oil paintings which are exposed there. Both of these spaces are together with the Gothic chapel (where you can view the figures of the apostles of the Old Town Astronomical Clock) part of the town hall´s public seightseeing. The exposition further involves the seightseeing of the Romanesque-Gothic town hall basement or a climb up the tower gallery.
