Former place of medieval market

Former place of medieval market




In the middle Ages there were many specialized market places within the city where only certain goods were sold. Therefore we until now have places in Prague which are called Ovocný Trh (Fruit Market), Uhelný trh (Coal Market), the today’s Charles’s Square used to be a Cattle Market and even Wenceslas Square was the Horse Market. Naturally, the biggest market place of the city was at the Old Town Square, however, one of the oldest markets is close by where today another market place stands Havelské trhy – Gaul’s Market. The former market was much narrower but also longer, it reached to the church of St Gaul. The market exists until today and now it’s a good place to buy fruit and vegetables but also typical souvenirs from Prague.
