B3 Klementinum

The registration is closed. In case of interest please contact the IUGG Prague Secretariat.

A visit to the Clementinum (Klementinum in Czech), a historic complex of buildings in down-town Prague. Its history dates back from the existence of a chapel dedicated to Saint Clement in the 11th Century. The Dominican Monastery was founded here in the medieval period and transformed in 1556 to a Jesuit college. In 1654 the whole complex merged with Charles University. The Jesuits remained until 1773, when the Klementinum was established as an observatory, library, and University by the Empress Maria Theresa of Austria. The Astronomical Tower was erected with the completion of the unique Baroque library and of the Mirror Chapel. The tower was used for astronomical observations till the late 1930s, when astronomers moved out of Prague to the new observatory in Ondřejov. The Meteorological Observatory is the oldest measuring station in the Czech Republic, where the first regular meteorological measurements started in 1752 and has been continuing until now. Commemorative plaque of Croatian seismologist Andria Mohorovičć in the Clementinum was festively revealed on September 23, 2011.
