This magnificent historicist villa was built by a family of industrialists of Jewish origin. In the turbulent twentieth century, the villa served quite a variety of purposes; there was a girls` dormitory, a Hitlerjugend residence, a police station, a nursery, a kindergarten, or a medical school. Today the building is used by the Prague 8 Municipal Authority, and as part of the festival you can freely explore its artistically valuable representative premises.
