Libeňská vodárenská věž

The Libeň Water Tower at the intersection of today's Davídkova and Na Slovance streets in Prague was built in 1904 by František Schlaffer. It was part of the water supply system fed from the Káraný water source and supplied drinking water to the lower parts of Libeň. It ceased to fulfil its role in the late 1960s. The tower in the style of a Dutch lighthouse is 42 meters high, on a circular ground plan. Up to 178 m³ of water could be placed in the water tank in the tower. Since 1991 it has been protected as a cultural monument of the Czech Republic.

The Church at Jacob's Ladder is a sacral building of the Kobylisy congregation of the Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren built in the northern part of Prague, in Kobylisy, in U Školské zahrady Street. Its construction was planned at the time of political liberalisation at the end of the 1960s as a replacement for an unsatisfactory temporary house of prayer that had been used until then. The architect of the building is the Swiss Ernst Gisel and its grand opening took place in 1971. Subsequently, in 1995 and 2001, the building was reconstructed and rebuilt according to the designs of Czech architects Radovan Schaufler and Jakub Roskovec, during which a bell tower with two bells was also built next to the church.
