In Prague 1 - Old Town, one of the most important and best-known monuments of the capital of the Czech Republic, the Old Town Hall, stands on the Old Town Square. The town hall was established as early as 1338 and served as the seat of the Old Town government, the nearly 70-meter-high Gothic tower with a bay window chapel is its oldest part. The dominant feature of the tower is the unique clock, on which 12 apostles move every hour from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. For hundreds of years, the astronomical clock has shown not only the time and date, but also the position of the Sun, the phases of the Moon, astronomical cycles and holidays of the Christian calendar.
Petrín Tower, one of Prague's inseparable landmarks, was built as part of the Jubilee Exhibition in 1891 as a loose copy of the Eiffel Tower in Paris (to which it is in a ratio of 1:5), it is 58.70 m high and at its top, which is at the as high as the real Eiffel Tower, there are 299 steps. The view from it shows not only the whole of Prague, but also a view of almost the whole of Bohemia in clear weather.
Visitors to the museum will be treated to an exhibition that introduces them to the history of the gendarmerie and the police on Czech territory in the years 1850–1938, during and after the Second World War. There are also sections focused on criminology, border protection or anti-drug issues. Uniforms, weapons and equipment can be seen, as well as eight hundred photographs. In the outdoor part of the exhibition, interested parties can view large equipment, including, for example, the Mi-2 helicopter.
The room manager prepares you for the adventure that awaits you on the Titanic. He won't reveal much, you'll have to figure it all out yourself. Then your 60 minutes of exploring, searching, guessing, decoding and unlocking vital locks begins. Help will be prepared for the clueless, don't be afraid to ask about it. The tension will rise and you will - hopefully - get off the ship in time. We're keeping our fingers crossed for you, the water is said to be very icy there!
The 11 ha city park, known as Smetanovy sady during the Second World War, was created more than 100 years ago by merging plots of land, often vineyards, and includes, for example, the wonderful Kanálka garden. From it, for example, Mlíkarna, a late-classical lookout tower with a lookout, which now houses a nice cafe, or a sandstone obelisk with bird reliefs, were transferred to today's orchards, undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Vinohrady parks. The park opens up wonderful views of Prague: you can see Hradčany or Petřínská rozhledna, Prague Castle or the Main Railway Station.
