During the following centuries, the appearance of the Castle underwent changes with each significant monarch that ruled the Czech lands - Charles IV, Vladislav Jageellonský, Rudolph II or the Austrian Empress Marie Theresa.

 

One of the oldest parts of Prague is the legendary Little Quarter. This town quarter was built under the rule of one of the most powerful kings – Přemysl Otakar II.

For the revolution, later referred to as the Velvet Revolution, the appropriate domestic and international political conditions occurred at the end of the nineteen eighties.

On 17th November 1989, the date of the 50th anniversary of Nazi repression against Czech students (during the Second World War, the Czech lands were part of the Third Reich), many Czech students took to the streets. The state police brutally intervened into this demonstration. This intervention against unarmed students launched dramatic events which led to fall of the totalitarian government. At the end of the Velvet Revolution a new European democracy arose – The Czech and Slovak federative republic.

If it will be your wish, we can arrange lunch in the Melantrich building in Wenceslas square (Václavské náměstí) – where Vaclav Havel made his legendary speech from the balcony of this building to the mass gathering held in the square.
