The Church of St. Martin in the Wall

The Church of St. Martin in the Wall is located near Narodní trida and has been preserved as an almost intact work of the Middle Ages - a rare example of valuable Romanesque and Gothic architecture. It was built in the twelfth century in the village of Ujezd, which became known as the Ujezd ​​of St. Martin. The church acquired its current name in the thirteenth century, when King Wenceslas I enlarged the castle and then surrounded it with a castle wall. The wall divided Újezd into two parts, the inner one became part of the Old Town of Prague. The greater part of Újezd ​​remained behind the walls and was destroyed by the construction of the New Town under Charles IV. The south wall of the church became part of the city wall - hence the name Church of St. Martin in the Wall. As it was common, the church was surrounded by a school and a cemetery which has a connection to one of the Prague´s legends.
