Southern Bohemia Sights

Žižkovo náměstí (Žižka Square)

  • Plaza/Square/Piazza

Fodor's Review

There's no doubt who this square belongs to—a bronze statue of Jan Žižka dominates the area and clearly points to its Hussite past. The stone tables in front of the Gothic town hall and the house at No. 6 date from the 15th century, and were used by the Hussites to give daily communion to the faithful. Many fine houses that line the square bear plaques describing their architectural style and original purpose. Be sure to stroll the tiny streets around the square, as they curve around, branch off, and then stop; few lead back to the main square. This bemusing layout, created in the 15th century, was purposely created to thwart incoming invaders.
