This historical area is home to a number of the main attractions within prod containing the astronomical clock, also the old new Synagogue, the old town square, the Charles Bridge and more. The old town Prague was some of the earliest formations of the city which date back to the ninth century. This area was a spot of spacious marketplaces that were located along the bank of Vltava. A series of large military gatherings also took place in this area and eventually the town of Prague was formed. The city area has 13 different gates as well as a very large moat which would have improved defenses at the time.
The city eventually expanded into the 14th century by Charles IV and this is when the new town of Prague was formed and a moat and wall were dismantled to expand the city outwards. Through this expansion a number of new developments were also founded in the old town of Prague including the University of Prague. A new bridge was also constructed in the year 1357 across the river into the lesser town of Prague and between old town of Prague. The area experienced a large-scale fire in the year 1689 that claimed a fair portion of old town as well as Jewish town. It wasn’t until the year 1784 in which all of the towns of Prague were united into one capital city known as Prague. Today the old town of Prague still remains under this title of a district of the royal capital city of Prague. Many of the original seats of government including the old town hall still remain even though the city is overseen by a centralized government.
