Altstädter Ring - Old Town Square

Old Town Square, Prague 2009

The heart of Prague’s historical center is the Old Town Square. It occupies more than 9000 m². The market square has been beautifully restored. Here are the Gothic towers of the Teyn Church, which watch over the market square and a statue of the reformer Jan Hus, as well as, on the opposite side, the astronomical clock at the Old Town Hall.

In the early 20th century the house “Zum Einhorn” by Berta and Max Fanta was a center of Jewish intellectuals such as Franz Kafka, Albert Einstein, Max Brod and Samuel Hugo Bergman. Here, Max Fanta invented the Fantaschale named after him.
