Desfourský Palace

Architect: Josef Kranner

Year of completion: 1847

Desfourský Palace is a three-story neoclassical corner building. While its facade may appear relatively austere from the street, its interiors are adorned with artificial marble, wall paintings, gilded chandeliers, stucco decorations, and mosaic floors. Particularly breathtaking is the central staircase with columns made of brown marble and illusory patterns on the ceilings. Due to insensitive alterations, some valuable elements were destroyed, and there was a time when complete demolition of the palace was considered. In September 2020, it was entrusted to the Prague City Museum, which initiated its complete reconstruction for use as a museum. From time to time, the palace is open to the public during events such as the Open House festival or 4+4 Days in Motion.
