The Charles Square - New Town
Originally a cattle market, the square was founded by Charles IV as the main centre of Prague's new side. It is the largest
enclosed square in Prague and one of the largest squares in Europe.
The New Town Hall (Novomestska radnice), which served to its purpose up to the year 1784, was built between
the years of 1377-1418. Renovated in 1905 the Town Hall today is used for administrative purposes, cultural
and social events.
Another attractions are the Baroque Cathedral of St. Ignatius completed in 1670 by Carlo Lurago and the Emause Monastery
founded in 1347. ts extraordinary series of frescos in the cloister are the largest collection of medieval wall paintings
outside Italy. Since the mid-19th century the Charles Square has been a park
Today, it is surrounded by busy roads but with its many statues of Czech writers, scientists and artists, it is still a
nice place to sit and relax.
