INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT PALLLADIUM
Among those stationed in the former barracks (today’s Palladium) was also Josef Kajetán Tyl, famous Czech dramatists and author of the lyrics of the Czech national anthem. The building was owned by the army until 1996, but it was not in use and gradually fell into disrepair. Therefore, it was decided to sell the site in the early 1990s.
