  • Found when browsing the slab in this building. When I went to the building were closed. Appearance is brilliant or so called "Palace" was not. It was a simple building.

  • Walking along the promenade in the direction of Masaryk vysehrad, you climbed the bridge Legia, poljubasu note the cute green-leaf island that really can notice the secluded to vltavskomu Bank. Meet-Slave Island (ostrov Slavic). Its main and only architectural decoration is outwardly the most mannered building (during the numerous Prague walks more and saw lush and pretentious)-the three-storey lovely structure of yellowish colour-Žofín Palace. In principle, in addition facilities as well as a small park with a children's playground on the island of nothing (well, a couple of monuments in various places). As far as the island itself-it deserves a separate post. And here in relation to the Palace-here, I believe, it should be noted that the name itself of this facility is directly connected with the vencenosnoj representative of the genus, Bavarian Wittelsbach Princess, Austrian jercgercoginej and the mother of the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph I, IMHO, highly aristocratic name Zsófi Frederick Dorothea Vilemina (Žofie Frederika Dorothea Vilemína), who lived in the 19th century. Because the Czech name "Sophia" sounds like "Zsófi, the Castle, named after the mother referred to the monarch, and called" the Palace of Žofín (that is actually the Palace of Sofia). The Palace was built in the years 1836-1837 in neoclassical style by the architect Vincenzo Kulganeka commissioned by the owner of a plot of land, located on the island, as it is fashionable now to say, Prague businessman Václav Antonín Novotný. In the year 1886 Žofín Palace by architect Heinrich Violets changed its appearance on new Renaissance. Currently, the Palace is owned by the municipality are a different kind of venue for cultural and social events.

  • Here's a boat on the island (aka duck boat) towards the jump just like a Sir! Completely wonderful. Prague is one of the few where you can see the lit-up leisurely place

  • Was here in summer 2018 for a conference. Beautiful main hall and a generally lovely ambience. Small bar inside. Also there was a children's park outside with an adorable miniature train ride, and pedalos to rent for the river. Fun for everyone
  • I was here fir UNYP Graduation '18. It's very nice place. It made the graduation ceremony looks perfect.
  • So nice place. So clueless personnel. Completely destroying the experience.
  • Great place for exceptional occassiona like dancing ball or conference. Visited many times and always highly satisfied. The island is nice place for summer walks.
  • Palace in the very city centre. A bit sober from the outside, impressive inside. Lovely view over the river.
