Shopping Mall
“PALLADIUM was built on a site of the former “Jiří z Poděbrad” Barracks on náměstí Republiky square in Prague 1 district. The Barracks had been under the army's ownership for more than two hundred years (1780s — 1996). There were many famous Czech personalities within the army crew, for example Josef Kajetán Tyl who wrote lyrics to a song that became Czech national anthem later on. The complex became dilapidated in the second half of the 20th century as the facilities were not used very much. While occupied by the army, the complex was completely closed to the public. It was not until the beginning of the 90s that the Ministry of Defence decided that the site should serve.”

Monument / Landmark
“The Astronomical Clock, built in to one side of the Old Town Hall Tower, dates from the 15th century. To fully appreciate the clock's intricate construction, join the crowd in front of the tower to watch the procession of the Twelve Apostles: on the hour, every hour, a small trap door opens and Christ marches out ahead of his disciples, while the skeleton of death tolls the bell to a defiant statue of a Turk. ”

Neighborhood
“In the 10th century, 70 years after the establishment of Prague Castle, a church and fortified trading post were built on a cliff top overlooking the Vltava River, on the heights of Vysehrad. Although not much remains of the castle today, Vysehrad Park none-the-less makes a pleasant excursion out of the hustle and bustle of Prague's city centre. ”

Museum
“At the edge of the Letná park, in front of the National Technical Museum, stands the oldest floored carousel in Europe. The National Technical Museum is planning to restore the carousel's structural parts in the immediate future, which, however, will not be enough to restore the carousel to a fully functioning state. Therefore, a cooperative project between the district of Prague 7, the National Technical Museum and other nearby institutions has been formed to plan the restoration of the remaining portions, and return the carousel to fully functional status in the near future. This initiative is open to sponsorship by the public, that is, to anyone wishing to help restore the Letná carousel.”

“Welcome to the original American restaurant (or should we say “Diner”), that is located in the centre of Prague near the Old Town Square. Our restaurant is themed with authentic US diner style furniture which is inspired by Chevrolet Bel Air’s armchairs from 1952. Immediately on entrance you will notice the monumental hand-made, 60 piece ceramic columns (mosaic) of James Dean and Marilyn Monroe. These artistic masterpieces took 3 months to create.
