Černý slon (Black Elephant) in Prague
The house U Cerneho Slona was built according to historical records of Prague Municipality in the period 1330-1340 in the Gothic style.
Prague rarity is the original roof truss,
which has been preserved in its original state. Very well maintained is also the original wall around the door of the hotel.
Over the centuries, the house of our hotel changed owners many times. The most famous of these was probably Mr. Capek, who ran the famous junk shop until the formation of our family hotel.
According to some historical sources, Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV was born in the neighboring house. And so it is not so surprising that walls of our hotel building have witnessed visits of historicaly significant persons such as Tycho Brahe, Mr. Vaclav Havel and Mrs. Albright.
