About Staroměstská brána (The Old Town Gate)

The Old Town Gate will be a new urban space in the heart of Prague.

We want to give the end of Pařížská Avenue a new form that will serve the city’s inhabitants as well as its visitors. We will open an area of 6,250 m² from Bílkova Street across Miloš Forman Square up to the quay at the Dvořák Embankment. We will enrich it with greenery, fountains, street furniture and new shops, services, cafes and restaurants.

The old and the new

The Fairmont Hotel

The remarkable building of the former Hotel InterContinental forms an integral part of the area. After a thorough reconstruction it will be reopened as part of the Fairmont chain. The reconstruction honours the unique elements placing the edifice among the pearls of brutalist architecture while at the same time emphasizing the technological and ecological requirements of the 21st century.
