Národní dům na Smíchově

In 1906, before the connecting of Smíchov to Prague (1920), the representatives of the town of Smíchov decided to build the National House. They planned it as one of the dominant buildings of the main square of Smíchov, on the site of the original botanical garden, which was destroyed by the flood in 1890. The representative Art Nouveau building is one of the important realizations of Alois Čenský, a Czech architect and professor of Czech Civil Engineering in Prague, regarded as a representative of the Czech Neo-Renaissance and Art. The construction of the National House in Smíchov took place in 1906-1908. The building originally had two restaurants, electric bowling, a café, a billiard room, a chess, and a reading club. This cultural stand is one of the five largest cultural houses in Prague with its capacity for social events.
