Maltese Square

The Knights of Malta once lived in this part of the Little Quarter, where they had a monastery since 1169. And till now, the square still bears their name. It is dominated by the 12th-century Church of Our Lady beneath the Chain with mighty Gothic towers and beautiful Baroque palaces as the Nostitz with its balustrade, statues and Classical vases. Joseph Jager designed the attractive pink Rococo Turba. Now the square is mainly lined with mellow cafés and pubs.

In Czech: Maltézské náměstí
