Colonnade near the House of Culture

The houses of an old Jewish ghetto used to stand in the area where the House of Culture with a modern colonnade is situated today. The residents left the zigzag Papírová, Karlova and Široká lanes after 1850 and they built their homes freely at their own will. Planned demolition started after 1946 and Peace Square (Mírové náměstí) was formed. The period of 1977–1986 saw further adaptations of the adjoining areas and the construction of the House of Culture. Its creator was the architect Karel Hubáček from Liberec who worked in cooperation with the architect Otakar Binar. Soft landscaping of the surrounding area in the line of Papírová and Dlouhá streets followed the construction with a continuous transition to Spa Park.
