Construction of the palace Prague 3 - Palace Akropolis (czech: Palác Akropolis)
The construction
works on Palace Akropolis (czech: Palác Akropolis) started in March 1927 under the architect Rudolf Svoboda. He started to build a monumentous house with a café and a theatre hall. The academic painter Štroff created unique decorations of the entire theatre interior. In the foyer he designed sceneries from the rise of Czechoslovakia and he painted scenes from the stage and film lives in the basement of the theatre.

The purpose of the palace
Besides the theatre, there were also comfortable appartments in Palace Akropolis which were - due to high rents – only available for well-off families. Based on the exant records attorneys, doctors or stock brokers were living here in 1930´s. Due to the economic crisis Rudolf Svoboda had to sell the palace and the theatre was forgotten completely. Later the theatre was rented by an association of the Prague Theatre Komedie (Comedy). In January , 1928 a new hall was ceremoniously opened and the theatre was operating for long years again.

Post-war period Prague 3 - Palace Akropolis (czech: Palác Akropolis)
Later on, an extensive reconstruction under Jiří Koldovský was carried out. In the period of WW2 the theatre turned into a biograph. In the hard times of our history right here people were meeting to see various movies. After the war the theatre was reopened and theatre performances were on again. However, in 1948 the theatre was again and it was used as a storage place and canteen for workers and seniors. The palace was purchased by Žižkovská divadelní a hudební agentura (eng: Žižkov Theatre and Music Agency) in 1991 which carried out an extensive reconstruction not just of the restaurant but especially of the theatre hall.
