The Social Evening takes place at the Municipal House, one of the most significant public buildings in Prague. 

Municipal House 

From an architectural perspective, the Municipal House is very interesting. This is due to the usage of the irregular triangular shape of land it is built on. The architects included organic and rhythmical proportions, inspired by the Art Nouveau style, along with baroque elements.       

  

The historical significance of the Municipal House has been affirmed by history itself: the Municipal House witnessed the coming to life, the birth, of the independent Czechoslovak state, which was declared here a few years after the building’s completion. The republic’s establishment is commemorated by a bronze plaque, situated on the same corner as the Spirit of the History. 

After the Velvet Revolution in 1989, Prague’s municipal authorities perceived it as one of their primary tasks to restore the dilapidated ceremonious building to its former glory and. The extraordinarily demanding reconstruction took place between 1994 and 1997. 

As part of the reconstruction, which fully respected the nature of this monument of national heritage, the building was fitted with modern technology to facilitate high-quality services. Thanks to the sensitive approach and the effort to preserve the institution’s original purpose, the Municipal House can once again fulfil its social, cultural, and ceremonial roles with pride and welcome its domestic and foreign visitors.
