Palace Žofín

Slovanský ostrov 226, 110 00 Prague, Czech Republic

Situated in the heart of Prague on Slovansky Island, the Zofin Palace is a neo-renaissance building constructed in honour of archduchess Sofie, mother of the emperor Franz Josef I.

The Zofin Palace received its current form in 1885-87 thanks to Jindrich Fialka's design.

The 1930’s added a garden restaurant and a musical pavilion to the Palace. In 1992-94, this cultural landmark was reconstructed according to Tomas Santavsky's atelier's project. Since the middle of the last century, Zofin has been a cultural centre of Prague.

Nowadays, significant cultural and social events of international importance take place there and the Zofin Palace thus continues in its rich tradition.
