The famous opera singer Ema Destinnová lived in Kaiserstein Palace and the music hall named after her hosts chamber concerts of classical music. Two Renaissance houses were merged and rebuilt in 1714 into today´s palace. Under construction proposal is signed famous architect Giovanni Battista Alliprandi and construction was carried out by the workshop of Kilian Ignac Dientzenhofer.

The first owner of the Palace was František Helfried, Baron of Kaiserstein and a military commander of Prague.
