More concerts in the Mnunicipal House
In the Art Nouveau Hall you can appreciate original wood panelling with inset relief ceramic tiles and mirrors, as well as stucco decorations and remarkable inlaid tiling of the stage. Some of the lamps are also preserved originals.
The Municipal House was built at the place of the former Royal Court in 1912 to celebrate the Czech nation. It is a representative building which for its splendour and beautiful decorations is one of the jewels of Prague architecture. Although the building is usually described as an "Art Nouveau" edifice it is more of a blend of neo-Baroque, neo-Renaissance, western and oriental influences and Czech Art Nouveau style.
The venue offers a wide range of multifunctional premises in which all sorts of events are held (exhibitions, conferences, fashion shows, charity events, companies' shows, etc.). There is also a great and highly recommendable French restaurant, Café and American bar.
