Where the Czech...? #73

Does anyone know which Czech town these four little snippets represent?

I believe this is Mělník. Have yet to visit the city, but heard of the čajovna in the clock tower. It looks like a charming place to visit.

Nice try Doogie, but no cigar, I'm afraid. Not even a cup of tea ;-)

I reckon it's the Leaning Clock Tower of the church in the Chod town of Domazlice...

Captain Oddsocks said...

Another good guess, komodo, but incorrect I'm afraid.

The lean on that tower is mostly to do with poor camera technique on my part. Oops!

time for a clue I reckon!

Captain Oddsocks said...

Okay...

In addition to the pictured gate towers, church of St Lawrence and the first statue of Mr ...., this town has one of the largest main squares in the country, its four edges measuring 127, 134, 147, and 153 metres.

And it has a two-word name, but is neither Karlovy Vary nor Hradec Králové...

Very well done, Komodo. If you can get another 19 right before Jay or either of the Michaels you'll win the prize.
