Hotel Praha lecture

Lecture about Hotel Praha that took place at Nanovo shop on September 12 2016.

Hotel Praha was an architectural and design icon of one era: it was used as luxurious elite hotel for the members of the Communist party as well as VIP foreign clientele. Hotel Praha was constructed using the best technologies and materials available at the time and the interior decor was designed by famous artists. The hotel was situated in Prague at Susicka street 20. It existed between 1981 - 2014. After 1989 the hotel was fully functional until 2014, when it was destroyed under somewhat controversial circumstances by a private company PPF.
