It is one of the most important Gothic buildings in the area, and the entrance hall with the Mázhaus vault is one of the largest surviving non-sacred spaces of the High Gothic period in Bohemia. In the history of the town, the town hall has witnessed many events that will remain imprinted here forever. The first and second Prague defenestration took place here, a dramatic fire occurred here, it used to be the seat of the criminal and provincial court with a prison, and executions took place in its courtyard. It is associated with the name of Jan Sladky - Kozina, the legendary robber Václav Babinský, Alois Rashin and Milada Horáková. Currently, the New Town Hall serves as a multifunctional cultural facility organizing exhibitions, concerts, festivals and other cultural and social events.
