Prague Market H11

The Prague Market (sometimes also the Holešovice Market) is a listed area located between Argentinská, Jateční, Komunardů and Bubenské nábřeží streets. The buildings in the complex bear elements of Art Nouveau and Neo-Renaissance; were built in the years 1893-1895 according to the design of the architect Josef Srdínek for the Central Slaughterhouse of the Royal City of Prague. The slaughterhouse served its purpose until 1983, when it was rebuilt into a market. Since 1993, the area has been protected as a cultural monument.
