Prague Municipal House

The Municipal House was built between 1905 and 1911 to design of the architects Polívka and Balšánek, occupying the area of the former Royal Court, which had been demolished in 1903. The new building, conceived as the centre of the Czech cultural life, presents a mixture of architectural styles as neo-Renaissance, neo-Baroque and Art Nouveau.


In  1918,  the  National  Board  was  founded  in  this  building  and  the  independence  of  Czechoslovakia  was  declared  from  its  balcony.  Following  that,  in  the  1920s  and  the  1930s,  many  cultural  events  took  place  there.  Between  1994  and  1997,  were  carried  out  major  reconstruction  works  with  the  aim  to  re-establish  the  original  appearance  of  the  building,  based  on  original  plans  and  photographs.  At  present,  the  Municipal  House  is  used  as  a  concert  hall,  ballroom  and  civic  building.  It  also  houses  cafés  and  restaurants.

Architects:Osvald  Polívka  and  Antonín  Balšánek
Project  date: ca.  1905
