Palác Akropolis – Multifunctional and Multicultural Space of Young Artists
Palác Akropolis is a culture center hosting music/theatre events in its multi-floor space. The building itself was built in 1927 and it served primarily as a biograph. After a decade it was turned into a theatre. Currently Palác Akropolis is a multifunctional and multicultural space of young artists from all around the world.
Reasons to go there
The maze of independent culture in Žižkov – the hip district of Prague which might be getting a bit too well-known for our liking 🙂 Palác Akropolis is literally a maze, consisting of multiple halls, cafe/bars in an old Palac, so a very cool location. It’s also one of local alternative favorites, as well as for the expat community, so you can never have a bad day in Akropolis.
What not to miss
Depending on the night, you can bump into any type of music – check their schedule before going. Or simply take your chances… There is usually something going on nearly every night, even after the live music ends!
Cool building huh?
5 min uphill walk from Husinecká tram stop, or a more straight – but longer – walk from Jiřího z Poděbrad metro station.
Žižkov has been a popular district for alternative culture for many years now. Once on the off-the-beaten-path for tourists, now it has become very well known. But still, with its typical untidy look, local residents and various cafe/bar options, it’s a very good option to spend time at.
Combine it with
