Municipal House (Obecni Dum)

this Sight was last updated on 24 May 08

The Municipal House is one of the most remarkable constructions of Prague Art Nouveau. At the time of its creation it was criticised by some architects as its style was considered to be formally outdated. It was officially opened in 1912 - and now getting on for a century later you can lay the controversy aside and appreciate the building for what it is - a truly beautiful piece of classical architecture.
The semicircular mosaic on the top dome is Karel Spillar's "Homage to Prague." Inside you can find Smetana Hall, Prague's main concert hall, as well as many small restaurants and cafes that offer places to relax in an Art Nouveau atmosphere.
And that's not all! On October 28, 1918 the Municipal House was the site of the proclamation of the independent state of Czechoslovakia, also known as the First Republic.
