František Křižík’s Square - Hosted By

Not review yet

František Křižík’s Square – practically everyone who even passes through Tábor will not be able to avoid it. The space between the Old Town and the New Town, on the road from the Jordanian dyke and continuing towards České Budějovice, became a natural crossroads when only horse-drawn carriages were traveling. Indeed, it was here that the city’s weight was placed and all-round public life developed. With the gradual construction, a large square called Husovo was built in the second half of the 19th century. Its significance was also reflected in the gradually emerging dignified buildings, whether it was an exhibition building of a state real estate or a first-class hotel, later a cinema and Živnostenská banka. In a number of apartment buildings, nowadays partially non-existent, there were trading companies, of which we would like to mention at least the “Vaňha”. The Liberator’s monument 1914 – 1919 originally found a place in front of the U Jelena restaurant garden, later it was extended by the author Jan Vítězslav Dušek and moved to the 1919 Lípa Liberty in the center of the square. However, his name after the Kostnicka martyr also moved to a more suitable place, while the bustling area in the center was named Riegrovo Square. A keen Czech patriot and political leader of the nation was left here by the German occupation administration, the name of Rieger-Platz is read on her 1943 plan of the Camp. However, the stump grew out of the stump, which the gardener secretly watered and, after the occupation, produced seven tribes symbolizing the years 1938-1945. The end of World War II was also reminded otherwise. On November 15, 1947, the square was named after former US President F. D. Roosevelt (in office 1933 – 1945). Among other things, US Ambassador Steinhardt said in a solemn speech: “There is an interesting similarity between Hus and Roosevelt. They both fought bravely and persistently against the forces of oppression and terror … and they will be bright examples for all humanity that the democratic freedom of expression we value is a blessing that must be enthusiastically guarded and often struggled – not once but over and over again… ” The name of Roosevelt Square was left until 1958. At that time, by the decision of the Council of the local National Committee, it was renamed to Antonín Zápotocký Square, for which the following decade meant above all worrying about transport. The space itself has been modified several times. The overall appearance of the square has changed, especially in the 1980s after the demolition of some residential buildings and new construction. Immediately after 1989, a tribute to Czech science and technology was given to František Křižík, who did many meritorious deeds for the city of Tábor. It is a pity that this place has not been reminiscent of a dignified square for a long time, but rather a complex adrenaline road junction. Source: Táborský deník
