Svitavy Landmarks

The town square Náměstí Míru (Peace Square) in Svitavy

The Svitavy town square is famous for its arcade being one of the longest town squares in the Czech Republic with arcades on both sides. The town square acquired its present form after the 249 original wooden houses with stone foundations burnt down in great fires in 1590 and 1781. Some of the most significant buildings standing on the square Náměstí Míru (Peace Square) are the Church of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary, the old town hall, the house U Mouřenína (Blackamoor House), and Ottendorfer Library. There are also other interesting architectural works of art such as the plague column, baroque fountain of St. Florian, the marble table with the zodiac, or the modern Fountain of Life in the lower part.

Jan Palach Park in Svitavy

Jan Palach Park was set up together with the grounds of Langer Mansion in 1890. After 1946 it bore the name of Dr. Edvard Beneš and was first open to the public. Since 1993 it has been bearing the name of the student Jan Palach. Its continuous deteriorating after Wolrd War II was the reason for extensive regeneration in 1999 lasting until 2001. The park with its area of almost two hectares witnessed modifications of the paths, buildings, and vegetation, plantation of new species of decorative plants, trees and solitaires.

In Jan Palach Park you may find a decorative pool or the “hill” planted with rhododendrons.
