Prague Castle
VyЕЎehrad

Originally, VyЕЎehrad had been a Slavic ancient settlement, whose existence was first noted in 1003. A royal residence since the 11th century, the VyЕЎehrad fortress consists of 6 bastions, as well as a Roman Catholic church, two chapels, several residences, and a cemetery with graves of many famous Czechs. The fortress has three gate entrances. The VyЕЎehrad garden's curious sculptures represent Czech mythology.

Vladislav Hall

The throne room of the old royal palace in Prague Castle was built by Benedikt Rejt in 1487-1500 during the reign of Vladislav Jagello. This is the largest secular hall of the medieval Prague (63 С… 16 С… 13 meters) with star-shaped reticular vaults. Vladislav Hall has seen coronation feasts, council meetings, knight tourneys and trading. Starting in 1934, president elections take place here as well.

Royal Summer Palace

The palace was built in 1563 following the project of Paola della Stella for the wife of king Ferdinand I. It had been most often used for ceremonies and balls. Unprecedented in its elegance, the arcade with refined pillars and reliefs adds a southern touch to the palace. The grandson of Ferdinand I, Rudolph II, offered Tycho Brahe, an astronomer, to create an observatory on the palace's terrace. Johannes Kepler took Brahe's place as a court astronomer after his death and subsequently formulated his laws of planetary motion here in 1609.

Industrial Palace

In 1891 the Jubilee Exhibition was marked with construction of the neo-Baroque Industrial palace. Reconstructions of the 1907 introduced elements of Moderne onto the silhouette of the palace. In 1991 the palace and the famous Krizik fountains were renovated, and spectacular music and lighting performances started to be held here.

Bertramka

It was just a 17th century estate in the beginning, but in the 18th century it was rebuilt and given a very Classic look. The owners were the famous DuЕЎek couple, musicians and good friends of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It was here, in Bertramka, that Mozart finished "La clemenza di Tito", an opera commissioned by the Czech aristocracy on the occasion of Leopold II's coronation in Prague. Today, the Bertramka estate houses a museum dedicated to Mozart and the DuЕЎek couple.

Municipal House

The brightest example of Prague's Modernisme (Art Nouveau) is located on the spot where a royal palace founded by VГЎclav IV near Powder Tower formerly stood. The Municipal House was built in 1905-1911 by architects Osvald PolГ­vka and AntonГ­n BalЕЎГЎnek. All Czech Modernist artists of that time contributed to the decoration of the house. The facade is crowned with a large ceramic mosaic by Karel Е pillar, titled "Homage to Prague". The interior is famous for Alfons Mucha's murals and the Smetana Hall, a central concert space in Prague.

House of the Black Madonna

This cubist house, built in 1911, was designed and planned by Josef GoДЌГЎr. The facade is decorated with a statue of Holy Mary (hence its name), that was transferred here from the old house that was standing here formerly. There are so many windows that it seems that the House has no facade and no face, only countless eyes gazing intently at the passers-by.
