Enjoy the classical music concert in beautiful Gregr hall!

The decoration of Gregr Hall, designed originally for the Civic League, the initiator of the Municipal House’s construction, was entrusted to František Ženíšek, a member of the National Theatre generation, whose work is based in the ideological world of the academic painting of the second half of the 19th century. For this hall, Ženíšek painted ceiling allegories symbolizing Life, Poetry and Death. The hall is dominated by a mural triptych of Love Song, War Song and Funeral Song, depicting life from birth to death. The hall bears the name of Julius Grégr, a founder of the National Daily, which was an influential newspaper in the 19th and 20th century.
