Beautifully ornate baroque town hall originally built in 1955, reconstructed a few times since. The attic holds the statues of four virtues - Wisdom, Prudence, Courage and Justice. Every hour on the hour the bells play a cute tune. Public bathrooms located inside.

Amazing building! It is one of the Cultural monuments in Czechia. It’s also worth to be there in the whole hours - there is always a different glockenspiels. There are also special ones for public holidays.

When you enter the Premysl Ottokar II square, you will see at first the City Hall, as this building is so colorful, that it gives you the best impression. There are 4 statues on the top, inside there is a little, but interesting city exhibition.

The town hall is probably the most prominent building in the square. It houses, among other things, tourist information and small exhibitions, but most importantly the best, smartest and cleanest toilets in town. Very important after a few pivo on the square.
