Using Swiss marble and Parisian fabrics, Adolf Loos clearly designed this villa to impress and represent. It is austere, yet luxurious and practical, its outside functionalist appearance contrasts with a generous internal layout. A joint ticket for the Rothmayer villa entitles you to a discount.

The design of architect Otto Rothmayer’s family home was directly inspired by his teacher Plečnik, for whom he carried out major transformations at Prague castle. Materials ‘borrowed’ from there can be found all over his villa, which has a rather Mediterranean atmosphere. Can be visited in small groups after reservation.

In spite of its neo-Renaissance style, this villa is named after a French general, not after the Italian football player. Its façade is lavishly decorated with sgraffito technique
and well-preserved remainders of stucco. The four floors are shared between an art gallery and a cultural centre.

For this villa, the famous architect Jan Kotěra drew inspiration from English country manors. The result is a unique example of Art Nouveau geometric ornaments combined with rural architecture and Slavic traditions. The colourful wooden panelling of the central staircase is simply spectacular.

When it was built by Kilian Ignaz Dientzenhofer, the main architect of the local Baroque era, this summerhouse was still located far outside the city. Its main hall resembles a temple to the muses, with frescoes depicting Greek gods. It frequently hosts concerts, as the Museum of Music has installed the permanent exhibition on Antonín Dvořák here.
