The Old Town Square

The Old Town Square has been since the 10th century the center of the economic life of the city: originally a large market for all merchants comnig to Prague from close and distant destinations, it turned within centuries into the principal square serving as a gathering and social and political events venue: it was here where the protestant noblemen and leading merchants were executed after the defeat in the Battle of the White Mountain, it was here where the newly born Czehoslovakian Republic was celebrated in 1918, or the Communist putsch in 1948 announced and confirmed. 

Not only the famous Oltd own Hall with the Astronomical clock and beatiful gothic building, but all the houses here have teir long and notable history.

The author of the article and the manager of the hotel in one has many years experience with writing texts, she has been working as a free-lance journalist contributing to different Czech daily newspapers and other periodics of all kinds. She has spent a part of her career working as a city guide, and her articles are therefore providing a highly informed insight of a person, who was not only born in Prague, but who has crisscrossed the city streets countless times, has read hundreds pages of literature about Prague, and who constantly strives to contribute to the good reputation of the city from her todays workplace. Hopefully with a success…
