The Clementinum is an extensive Jesuit complex on the site of the old Dominican monastery and several medieval homes. Based on the designs of eminent Italian Baroque architects Carlo Lurago, Francesco Lurago and Giovanni Domenico Orsi, it was erected gradually as of 1653.

The Clementinum's Astronomical Tower

At the beginning of the 18th century Pavel Ignac Bayer and Frantisek Maxmiliam Kanka completed its grounds. It was the main operational seat of the Jesuits and later it became the University of Charles-Ferdinand. Today it is the National Library of the Czech Republic, which has a stock of around 6 million volumes.
