The Kaiserstein Palace is a popular venue for organising classical concerts with unforgettable amosphere.

The famous opera singer Ema Destinn 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 Frantisek Helfried, Baron of Kaiserstein and a military commander of Prague. In the 19th century the edifice belonged to marshall Radecky, who is considered one of the greatest generals of his time. Later owner, a hotelier Vaclav Petzold established a restaurant here.
