Municipal House and its collection

Municipal House

The Municipal House of Prague, known locally as Obecní dům, is a significant civic landmark and auditorium in the city. It holds a prominent place in the architectural and political history of the Czech Republic. This modernist masterpiece is located in the Republic Square, close to the Powder Tower, and is used for representative purposes.

Historical Significance of the Municipal House

The Municipal House has a rich history, originally serving as the urban residence of the Czech kings, known as The Royal Court. It was built by King Wenceslas IV in 1380, marking a shift of the court from Prague Castle to the Old Town. This historical significance adds to the allure of the Municipal House for visitors.

The Smetana Hall

The interiors of the Municipal House consist of several rooms, each with its own unique charm. The most famous among these is the Smetana Hall, which serves as a concert hall with a capacity for 2000 people. The grandeur of this hall and the events it hosts make it a significant attraction for tourists.
