A part of the Charles IV New Town was formerly a horse market. Today, it is an area full of shops, offices, hotels, restaurants and cafés.
Church of Our Lady of the Snows
The building’s construction was started by Charles IV in the 14th century who saw it as the future biggest church building in Prague, however it was never completed.
An architectonical masterpiece built out of private donations in the Pseudo-Renaissance style, it is a symbol of the National Revival and one of the most important cultural sites in Prague.
Apart from its obvious cultural meaning in the Prague history, it is also the architecture symbol of the 19th century National Revival.
Maybe a little less lucrative opera scene than the National Theatre, it can compete with the grand building in terms of architecture.
Just like the Wenceslas Square was formerly a horse market, today’s Charles Square was a cattle market. Founded by Charles IV, it was supposed to be the centre of Prague’s New Town, but this position went to the more famous Wenceslas Square.
Church of Saint Cyril and Saint Method
First built by the famous Baroque architect Killian Dietzenhofer, it was a place where old priests spent their retirement years.
