This Prague's most prominent Art Nouveau building was constructed in 1911 (A.Balsanek, O.Polivka) on the spot of the former king's court, a seat of the kings of Bohemia from the end of the 14th century till 1438.
The rich interior andexterior decoration is work of A.Mucha, M.Svabinsky etc. The monumental Smetana Concert Hall forms the centre of the building being the place of the international Music Festival Prazske jaro (Prague Spring), other concerts and important social events.

This impressive building is a frequent stop for visitors drawn in by the art nouveau gold trimmings, stained glass, sculpture, and the regular exhibitions and concerts.
Historically, Municipal House had been used as a seminary and a military college, but was finally demolished and replaced by the present cultural centre,

There is also a cafe and the famous French restaurant in the lobby hall.
