Langer’s House on the Square Náměstí Míru No. 138 and 139

The house has two numbers because originally two late-Gothic houses used to stand here; later they were joined and rebuilt in the Renaissance style. A corner oriel was added at that time. While the front and rear wings of the house are from around 1530 – 1540, the yard arcade access balcony was added a little later. Sgraffiti with motifs from the Old Testament, which distinguish the house from surrounding buildings, date back to 1579. According to tradition, house no. 139 is one of the oldest in the town. The widow of Jáchym of Hradec, Anna of Rožmberk, was among the owners; she moved here after her husband’s death in 1565. In 1586, both houses were joined by a rich Hradec burgher, Čech of Kozmáčov. An exhibition and sales gallery is located in building no. 138 and concerts and chamber theatre performances are held here. An internet café is also located in the house.
