City guide by local people

the National House of Vinohrady

One of the dominant landmarks of Peace Square, the National House of Vinohrady is situated in the Royal Vinohrady district. It was built by decision of the city council by architect Antonín Turek in neo-Renaissance style in the 19th century.

The four-storey building has three large ceremonial halls, four lounges and a number of offices and retail spaces. That’s why balls, social dance classes and concerts often take place here. The building can accommodate up to 1500 guests.

Interesting facts about the National House of Vinohrady

The National House of Vinohrady is a favourite location for filmmakers from all around the world. For example, the epic La Mome (depicting the life of Edith Piaf) was shot here and actor Pierce Brosnan filmed a commercial here. 

Mayakovsky Hall, which is named after Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky, is the largest (500 m²) and most beautiful hall of the National House of Vinohrady. The ceiling paintings were carried out by Adolf Liebscher, who also participated in decorating the National Theatre. There are three historical chandeliers dating back to the 19th century and 23 sculptures of national revivalists lining the hall. Rais Hall, which is named after Czech writer Karel Václav Rais, was also constructed in Renaissance style, but the decoration is less elaborate, as it was created for film and theatre performances. Originally a winter garden, the Social Hall has a unique glass ceiling and serves as the main hall. The decoration reflects mainly the spirit of 19th-century historicism, with some Art Nouveau elements.
