Year: 1928–1932

The monumental building of the Ministry of Agriculture of the Czech Republic is located on the Vltava embankment. Unlike other buildings, however, it is not oriented towards the river, but to Těšňov, where a railway station used to be located. Its architect František Roith, also the author of the City Library building or today’s seat of the Czech National Bank, impressed his unmistakable style into it. The tour will take you to the representative meeting halls, a library and the private office of the Minister.
