Havlíčkovo náměstí/Square, with its lovely park and flower beds, is graced in the middle with a statue of Karel Havlíček Borovský, Czech satirist, poet, and journalist. The corner building, in fine Historicist style, is the district town hall. Serving as the local administrative centre, it features an exhibition space and small inner courtyard with sculptural decorations.
Curiosity: Václav Havel got married twice at the Žižkov Town Hall. The world-renowned Czech playwright, dissident, and later Czechoslovak and Czech president, married Olga Šplíchalová, who lived nearby, here. After he was widowed, he once again went to the Žižkov Town Hall to wed actress Dagmar Veškrnová.
