House at the Balls

The house is named after its decoration – when the Putim Gate was pulled down (1812-1836), cannonballs of various sizes found during the demolition were placed on its facade. In addition, it is decorated with renaissance graffiti. The rich literary history of the place is primarily connected with the stay of writer Fráňa Šrámek. A memorial to the violin teacher Otakar Ševčík is located in the courtyard. A few steps away, behind a small stone bridge, you can enter a refurbished Gothic moat.
