  • Walking along the promenade Masarykovo just opposite Slovanskogo island with its lovely Zhofinom you poljubasu won't be able to miss a very interesting five-storey building in the art nouveau style (or French style-art nouveau), over the door portal which gold and there are the big letters "GOETHE-INSTITUT". This lovely structure was designed by architect Jiří Stibralom (Jiří Stibral) and built in 1903-1905. Probably not really surprise anybody when I say that this very indiscreet externally 25-metre high "House" was built by order of the first Czech Insurance Bank (well, bankers are always among the engines of progress, including architectural). In principle, from the point of view of architecture and eye candy in General, IMHO, are of particular interest the original bas-relief framing of Windows of the third floor. Particularly keen will be able to see the sculpture on the Eiger North face-left-right from the arched pediment-they are a creation of the famous Czech sculptor Ladislav Monkey (Ladislav Šaloun). After the second world war, the building housed the first Embassy of Bulgaria, and then by the diplomatic mission of the GDR. From 1991 onwards there is a branch of the so-called Goethe-Institut Prague, whose aim is to promote knowledge of the German language in the Czech Republic and to promote international cultural cooperation between the two States. To the left of the entrance of the powerful Institute stands absolutely no noticeable passers-by two marble glybina (clearly "splinter" of some old architectural creations-perhaps "stub" a column), where you can see the letters "GOETE time pokocannye ».

  • I do not recommend Goethe Institut in Prague for exam taking as the correction done by some native speakers or teachers is not done properly and in some cases does not correspond to the reality. So my experience with Goethe Institut is not much positive. Next time I will rather visit their affiliates in Germany as they seem to be more reliable.
  • The best choice to study German
  • Despite the undoubted prestige to this jazykovky I have a really bad experience with customer service. Employees with whom I spoke, they were nasty and very nevstřícní. If you can't attend the official enrollment in the term, or do not try to. At the Goethe-Institut is an insurmountable problem.

  • We wanted to go to virtual reality (Gregory samsy). We called the day before and we were told that you can't do from the 13:15 reservation. Mrs. us today said that up to 6 is all taken. The lady was really unpleasant. Very I Do Not Recommend! Very poorly organized! Pity that so good projects go bad!

  • I walked into the building convinced there was a current exhibition but there was nothing. I took the opportunity to admire the style of the building internally and externally. Beautiful staircase that climbs with old fashioned lift inside it with details.
