Werich Villa

Arts Centre in Malá Strana

A recently renovated historical building on Kampa Island, Werich Villa is worth a visit if you're interested in the history of Czech theatre and the lives of Czech poets, playwrights and such. The more than 450-year-old villa houses exhibitions, as well as daily events – mostly theatre performances, but also discussion rounds and workshops. The villa is named after its most famous inhabitant, Jan Werich, who was a writer, a playwright and an actor.
