Located in Holesovice, Prague 7 sits the historic Art Nouveau gem, the Industrial Palace. One of the first mounted steel structures in the Czech lands, this glass palace is one of the most important Art Nouveau buildings in the city. Designed and built for the Jubilee Exhibition in Prague in 1891 by architect Bedrich Muenzberger and Frantiskem Prasil, the exhibition space has held numerous events over the years including international trade fairs and exhibitions. Unfortunately on the 16th of October, 2008 a nasty fire broke out and destroyed the ornate left wing of this beauty; Prague 7 has lost a necessary part of its historical quintessence, let us hope it will be replaced regardless of how the destruction happened.
