Carolinum (Prague) Karolinym

 

Carolinum is a national Czech monument and the oldest university building in Europe that is used for its original purpose to present day. Carolinum is the main building of the Charles University that was bought by Charles IV in 1348 from Jan Rotlev, manager of the Mint House. Original Gothic building was increased in the early 15th century after new Gothic wings were added. After 1620 Carolinum along with the University became the property of the Jesuits. Over next two centuries Carolinum lost much of its original Gothic architecture and acquired Baroque appearance. In 1945 the Carolinum underwent a new renovation project under supervision of architect Fragner. Two lions at the entrance of the main buildings were added about the same time period.
