The area
Neighborhood: Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.

This is a commemorative plaque to mark the house where Christian Doppler stayed between 1843 and 1847. The house is a private house and there’s nothing there concerning the physicist. The plaque is made of bronze and has a relief sculpture of Doppler in portraiture. And engraved with words related to his stay in Prague.

It’s certainly not a must-see, nor even if visiting the Old Jewish Quarter. I did physics and fully appreciate the work he did, along with Hippolyte Fizeau on our understanding of the Doppler Shift, especially on astronomy. Plus one just because I love physics.
