Neighborhood: Nove Mesto - New Town

Located on Prague's largest square (Charles Square), the current New Town Hall is a remnant of the 14th-century original and the site of the city's first demonstration. Encouraged by Hussite leaders, an angry gang stormed the town hall demanding the release of Hussite prisoners and eventually threw Catholic officials to their death below. A statue of Jan Zelivsky, a Hussite preacher and all-round hell raiser from the time, stands in front of the structure which was renovated in the 1990s.
