  • Old Town Hall

Origin

Old Town Hall- One of the most famous Prague building was founded in 1338. It was placed into the house with a tower, which was bought from a Prague buyer. Later the town hall was couple times rebuilt. In 1364, the town hall tower was raised. At the beginning of the 15th century the famous Old Town Astronomical Clock was connected to the tower.

Later adjustments

Further modifications were not made until 1805. So in that year, little pavement was added to the top of thetower. There were also buildings that joined the town hall. Between 1838-1848 a Neo-Gothic wing was added and in 1880 the Neo-Renaissance rebuilt Miksův dům (next to the tower).

Modern history of Old Town Hall

Another event for the Town Hall was the Prague May Uprising in the last days of the Second World War, where the staff of the anti-fascist resistance was stationed. It was during the fighting that a fire broke out, which greatly damaged the entire Neo-Gothic wing and the tower. The wing was later demolished (now only part of it can be seen). The tower was repaired after the Second World War to its present form.

Today, it is possible to visit the city hall tower where the stairs lead, but also a lift, so  everyone will get there.
