Open House Prague
May 18-19 2019

Prague is considered one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in the world. The Old
Town represents manifestation of medieval urbanism but city itself is full of architectural
works of Gothic, Baroque and Modernism. Although you may know the city for its historical
and cultural heritage there are some high-quality contemporary pieces built in past few years.
Prague’s inhabitants may enjoy nice view on the way to work and the city attracts tourists
from all over the world to see its varied fascinating buildings. But what is hidden behind those
terrific facades? The most of buildings are not open for public, thus not even locals have a
chance to look inside of them.

Open House Prague 2019 is the fifth volume of the festival opening the city to its
community and showing interiors of commonly inaccessible buildings. There will be 80
buildings and spaces to be opened in the course of one weekend in May (18–19). The festival
offers not only residential and office buildings but also industrial, cultural, educational and sport
facilities, all from 15th up to 21st centuries. Moreover, for demanding and curious visitors
there are also technical buildings, railway stations and mysterious cemeteries to see.

The festival is organised by a non-profit organization Open House Praha. Large network of
300 volunteers is helping during the festival weekend providing free access to all buildings with
talks, tours and programmes for children and handicapped people. Its most recent fourth year attracted more than 54 thousand people from the entire Czech Republic and abroad. The festival took place in the Czech Republic for the first time in 2015 and has since become one of the most important cultural events in Prague.
