The project of the residential complex Old Town Court was recently completed in close proximity to St Anna Convent. The area dating back to the Middle Ages consisted of four buildings of which only three have remained to this day. On the vacant space a remarkable new building with a distinctive silvery façade decorated with organic motifs has recently grown up. If you go inside, a refreshing inner courtyard offers a peaceful green oasis in the very heart of Prague. Come and see how architects have managed to deal with the reconstruction of heritage-listed buildings, alleged home of personalities such as the Czech painter Josef Mánes or Austrian mathematician and physicist Christian Doppler!
