Prague Congress Centre
Since the year 2000, Prague has joined world’s prominent congress metropolises. The former cultural and social centre known as the Culture Palace, which was opened in 1981, was restored and completed in the years 1998 - 2000. Its construction started already in 1976, according to projects of architects Mayer, Vaněk and Karlík from the Military Designing Institute. It was used for cultural and social events, such as the communist party conventions.
In June 2000, the Prague Congress Centre was put into operation. The quality and suitability of the restored and new objects was checked via probably the greatest possible load: shortly after the opening, the 55th annual meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group was held here, being one of the most extensive and most significant events in the world. All the parts of the complex worked perfectly.
The Prague Congress Centre offers eight auditoriums with a total capacity of 4,500 places, and fifty lounges with a further capacity of 1,500 places. The largest Congress Hall for nearly 3,000 persons can also be used as a top quality music hall with perfect acoustics, air-conditioning and structured cabling.
The added multifunctional centre offers nearly 8,000 m2 of office space, with additional more than 1,600 m2 for commercial use, and a hotel building with a capacity of 261 rooms within the Holiday Inn chain. There are three stories of underground garages. There are a total of 1,000 parking places available in the complex.
