Long Description:

Renaissance Konstanz House (CZ: Kostnický dum; DE: Konstanzer Haus) in Tábor represents partnership of towns Tábor (Czech Republic) and Konstanz (Germany), which is based on historic events in years 1415-1416.

The present owner reconstructed the Konstanz House in 1994 and house itself became soon the symbol of close cooperation between towns Tábor and Konstanz. The towns are connected by their common relationship to medieval Czech religious thinker and church reformer Master Jan Hus (John Huss) whose legacy has been present in German Konstanz since the period of Reformation. On one of the houses, which is located near the town's gate Schnetzor was placed his bust and in 1862 Konstanz citizens unveiled festively his monument so called "Hus´s Stone", which has later become a place of pilgrimage. Several years later, to commemorate Jan Hus, the name of the street "St. Paul´s" was changed into "Hus´s Street". The house, where Jan Hus lived in 1415, was on the initiative of the Czech societies living in Germany embedded with the memorial plaque. In 1923 the Society of Hus´s Museum in Prague became the owner of the house. In 1965 there was opened the first exposition of Jan Hus, in 1980 "The Hus Musem" was opened here and in 2007 there was festively opened The Centre of German-Czech Meeting near the Hus´s Stone.

Mutual agreement on the partnership of the towns Tábor and Kostnice has deepened the cooperation of the Czech and German side. In 1993 the society "Partnership of Towns Tábor-Konstanz" enabled historical exploration and on 17th September 1994 they festively opened the reconstructed house for the public.
