O ovom smještaju
97m² spacious private apartment on the 1st floor of a historical pre-15th Century townhouse which used to be a hostel for journeyman tailors in 18th Cent. 200m walk from the famous Charles Bridge, you will stay in the very heart of Prague’s Old Town.
Our spacious first-floor apartment is composed of:
・entrance hall with access to bedroom, bathroom and walk-through kitchen which leads to the living room
・bedroom with a king-size bed (180x200), large wardrobe & writing desk
・large living room sporting a semi-detached sleeping niche with another king-size bed (180x200), sitting area with a sofa-bed (140x200), antique buffet, a rarely-used pianoforte and two antique wardrobes
・kitchen with dining table by the window, full-sized fridge and a kitchen corner with gas stove and oven
・bathroom with a proper bathtub, WC and a back room with washing machine, dryer, boiler and storage area
Entrance to the apartment itself is from a so-called "pavlač" - a large inner courtyard balcony connecting all apartments on the same floor with the main staircase. This is a prime example of a characteristic 19th Century building style used in Prague, Wien and Budapest. The courtyard, the staircase as well as the street façade were recently carefully reconstructed under supervision of the Czech National Heritage Institute.
Prague's Old Town Herberghaus is a unique place in touch with history:
- the original house was built around the time Charles IV. was king (from that period only the gothic cellars now remain)
- first written document mentioning the house dates back to 1406 AD at which time it used to be a blacksmith's forge
- in later centuries a lot of other craftspeople lived and worked in the house: cutlers, hatters, carpenters, later glaziers and most recently locksmiths (who still have a shop downstairs)
- in 1671 AD the original three gothic semi-detached houses were partially torn down and reconstructed in early baroque fashion
- in 1713 AD the Old Town's tailors guild procured the house, adapted it into a hostel for journeyman tailors who wandered from town to town (so called "herberg") and it stayed so for another 250 years
- between 1720 and 1726 AD the house was also home to Christian Willenberg, the first Engineering Professor of the Czech Estates and his initial collection of books which later became the Czech National Library of Technology (NTK), the largest and the oldest library of science and technology literature in the Czech Republic
- current appearance is a result of the late 19th Century adaptation of the house and of the expert renovations between 2009 and 2011
