Talk:Old Town (Prague)

I tried moving this article to an article heading with the 'special characters' but it didn't work very well at all. The history of this article is now on the redirect [[Staré MÄ>sto]]. I'll think twice before doing that again. --Randolph 04:08, 2 May 2005 (UTC)
"Old Town" or "Staré Město?"
Sandius has moved "Staré Město (Prague)" and "Nové Město (Prague)" to "Old Town, Prague" and "New Town, Prague," respectively. I think there should be some communal agreement on what the proper format for Prague cadastral areas should be. We need to decide:
- Should we use the native name (Staré Město) or the exonym (Old Town)? When living in Prague, I usually used the native name, but tour books often use English translations.
- Should we change "Malá Strana" to "Little Quarter" and "Josefov" to "Little Quarter?"
- Should "Prague" follow a comma (as Sandius has done) or be in parentheses (as it was before)?

The Old Town of Prague, Czech Republic, is a medieval settlement. The wall and moat that once surrounded it were dismantled in the 14th century; the remains of the moat now lie under several streets. The Old Town is home to Old New Synagogue, Old Town Square (pictured here), the Astronomical Clock, Malá Strana ("Lesser Quarter"), and Josefov.
