Holešovice (Czech pronunciation: [ˈɦolɛʃovɪtsɛ]) is a suburb in the north of Prague situated on a meander of the river Vltava, which makes up the main part of the district Prague 7 (an insignificant part belongs to Prague 1). In the past it was a heavily industrial suburb; today it is home to the main site of the Prague's National Gallery, the Veletržní palác, and one of the largest railway stations in Prague, Nádraží Holešovice. On the Strossmayer square lies neo-Gothic Church of St. Anthony of Padua.
