The House of the Black Mother (U Černé Matky Boží),sometimes referred to as Black Mother of the Lord, was designed and built between 1911 and 1912 on the corner of Celetná Street and Ovocný trh in Old Town.

Velká pardubická is a famous cross-country steeplechase run in Pardubice, Czech Republic since 1874, although the town of Pardubice had long been known in the horse racing world. Even some trainers and jockeys from England came here to work. The current steeplechase course was established in 1856 and has been changed several times. Some obstacles have also been changed, mostly to improve safety, although the difficulty of the race is said to have suffered as a result.
This both sport and social event takes place every year on the second Sunday in October. Some sources consider Velká Pardubická as the most difficult race in Continental Europe.
