    You'll find the City Theatre at the southern end of the Republic Square (namesti Republiky). I didn't go inside so just a picture from the outside.
    The link further down will take you to the homepage of the theatre. It's all in Czech.

    Vilem of Pernstýn had the St. Bartholomew’s church built in the beginning of the 16th century to serve as the temple for a monastery which he in turn had founded in Pardubice prior to 1514. He then built the church on the remainings of a church from the 13th century which had been demolished by the Hussite War (1420 - 32).
    Inside the church there is a sandstone tomb with a marble gravestone with a life size figure of Vojtech of Pernstýn, dead in 1534.
    Unfortunately you can not really get into the church since there is a glass door inside the entrance doors.

    Here's a link to a map showing the church, but the marker sits unfortunately at the wrong side of the street!!

    Mosaics over the entrance doors.

    There are a couple of well known, not to say world known, regular sports events in the city:
    * Zlota Prilba/Golden Helmet speedway race, held annually since 1929
    * The Czech Open Chess Tournament, the biggest in Europe if seen to
    the amount of competers
    * The Great Pardubice Steeplechase, a horse race held annually since 1874

    Pardubice also has one of the best ice hockey teams in the Czech Republic.

    Favorite thing: I have put links to Google Map in my tips to make it easier to find the objects mentioned, when possible to get the right position. The links are marked in italics. Unfortunately Google Map isn't very precise and too often points to other buildings than the wanted one.
