History of Prague Old Town Hotel Clementin:
House No. 176/4 At the Virgin Mary from the year of around 1360 (later also called At Our Nice Lady) is a very narrow ( 3.28 m!), biaxial, three-storey house, set in a crooked Seminářská street – this irregularity shows a very old origin of the street and houses located there.
Building history of this house is uncertain, lay-out of the city, however, shows that the house was developed by a supplementary division of a larger neighbouring building. Current look of the exterior and interior is a result of modern modification of late classicist facade. The oldest part of the house is a Gothic cellar with an unusual massive wall, where also a part of a stony, certainly medieval vault, remained preserved. Until 1433 the house was obviously part of the neigbouring house No.175, whose part was probably the cellar space. It is not possible to exclude that in the 16th Century frontal part to Seminářská street was built up, where there was probably a narrow street between the houses. After following connection with number 175 in 1627 the house had the same facade. Renmaissance construction corresponds with an overlapping floor over the ground floor. Probably in the 17th or at the beginning of the 18th Century, the house became totally independent. At that time the house was increased by a 3rd floor. The entry into the house is framed by the sand-stone Baroque ribbon portal with a transom light.
Hotel Clementin Prague surroundings:
Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is our most valuable historical city reserve. In 1992 the historical core of the city covering 866 hectares was listed in the UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage Register.
Prague represents a unique collection of historical monuments dominated by the Prague Castle which towers high above the city. It is a specimen of all artistic styles and movements. The historical core of the city is situated on both banks of the Vltava river and consists of 6 parts - formerly independent urban units unified in the 18th century. They are as follows: Stare Mesto (Prague Old Town), Josefov (the preserved part of the former Jewish Town - today a part of the Prague Old Town), Nove Mesto (Prague New Town), Mala Strana (Prague Lesser Town), Hradcany (Prague Castle Area) and Vysehrad. Naturally, most of the historical monuments, museums and galleries are concentrated right there.
