Clementinum and National Library
Clementinum and National Library - The Clementinum, one of the most important historical buildings in Europe, is home to the National Library of the Czech Republic. These beautiful Baroque buildings were originally part of the Jesuit dormitory. Later, the collections of the Jesuit Book Fund, as well as a collection from Karolina, were added. After the Jesuits were expelled, the library was owned by the state. The library opened for the public in 1782 shortly after being promoted to the National Library. With over six million books, the Clementinum collection is enormous and includes copies of all books published in the Czech Republic. The highlight is the Baroque library with its beautiful ceiling painting, a 68-meter high astronomical tower with a remarkable view of Prague, and a mirror chapel with an extraordinary atmosphere.
Old-New Synagogue also known as Altneuschul is one of the oldest synagogues in Europe which is still used for ceremonies. The base was build in the 13th century in the gothic style. There are many legends connected to this place. One of them is about Golem, a creature made from clay that was activated by entering a secret kabbalistic password.
Another legend says that stones used for building the synagogue are actually from the original Solomon´s temple in Jerusalem.
Golden Lane is a beautiful street near Prague castle. The name was given for two reasons which most probably are not true. One of them is saying that it was named after the goldsmiths, which supposedly lived there. However, since it was the poorest part of the city quarter called Hradčany, it is most probably just a myth. The other story says that the houses were occupied by alchemists.
The real facts are saying that the lane was built by the employees of the castle on their own. Anyway, it is a beautiful part of Prague´s rich historical heritage and totally worth to visit this magical place.
