Open House Prague
May 13-14 2017

From the tourist point of view Prague is one of the major European cities - also thanks to its architecture fitted into a wavy landscape. The history of the city brought Prague several waves of development that left an outstanding architectural heritage ­ baroque palaces are met with art-nouveau business buildings and functionalist or cubist apartment houses. Recent decades brought another wave of development as Prague took back its role of one of the centres of Central-European business.

The first Open House Prague took place in 2015 and was very well received by the public. Over 38,000 people visited 33 buildings in the centre of the city. At some places, people were willing to wait even for several hours. The second edition of the festival opened more than 50 buildings during the weekend of May 14-15, 2016. The portfolio of opened buildings for 2017 will include historical palaces, newly constructed housing projects, modern office buildings and technological complexes such as a brewery, a historical gasometer or a tower with telecommunication equipment.

Eva Jiřičná, a world-famous Czech architect is the guarantor of Open House Prague. The event has accepted the auspices of the Mayor of Prague and town mayors of several districts of the capital city.
