Do you know where opulent receptions are held and where the mayor of Prague invites his special guests? The mayor’s representative spaces can be found at Mariánské náměstí in the southern wing of the Municipal Library building, which has stood here since 1928 and whose design was created by architect František Roith. You can witness the splendour of these interiors for yourself at this year's Open House Prague festival.
The representative part of the residence is located on the second floor you can reach using a unique historical lift with comfortable couches. However, due to its capacity, visitors of the Open House will have to use the stairs. But it pays off. The rooms here are magical!
In addition to the impressive lounge, the large reception lounge and the dining room, you can also enter the more intimate rooms, which do not lose any of their luxury. There is a women's and men's lounge, as well as music, lemon and gaming lounges.
You can admire the luxurious wood and stone tiles, the beautiful mosaics, the decorative paintings on the ceilings and walls, as well as the works of art from leading artists of the time. The luxurious winter garden is spectacular as well, and when you enter you feel like you are in a completely different time and place. We always have similar feelings in luxury château interiors.
The mayor's flat is located one floor above, but it will not be available during the festival.
Everyone who comes to visit on May 18-19 during the Open House Prague festival. On other days, there are ceremonies attended by the mayor, special guests receive welcomes, and any institution request a space. It is up to the mayor to lend space for a particular social event.
