The monument of Jan Hus, famous Czech protestant reformer who was burnt as a heretic in 1415, is situated on the Old Town Square since 1915. Since the middle ages, the Old Town Square used to be the main Prague´s square and market place where exotic goods were sold. It had many names during the centuries: the Big Square, the Old Market or the Large Old Town Square.
The present name comes from the end of the 19th century. The Square used to host knight tournaments, celebrations, artistic events, etc. It witnessed many crucial historical events such as the election of Jiří of Poděbrady as the King of Bohemia in 1458, executions and fightings. Demonstrations, marches and parades take place on the Square even today.
The Jewish Quarter in Prague can be found between the Old Town Square and the Vltava River. Its history goes back to the 13th century, when Jewish people were ordered to vacate their homes and settle in one district. The Jews were banned from living anywhere else in Prague for centuries and many people then arrived from Moravia, Germany, Austria and Spain. Fortunately, most of the significant historical buildings were saved from destruction, and today they remain a testimony to the history of the Jews in Prague. They form the best preserved complex of historical Jewish monuments in the whole of Europe.
There are six synagogues in the Jewish Quarter, including the Spanish Synagogue and Old-New Synagogue, the Jewish Ceremonial Hall, and the Old Jewish Cemetery, the largest one in Europe. The monuments luckily survived the Nazi occupation since Adolf Hitler decided to preserve the Jewish Quarter as a “Museum of an Extinct Race”.
