Discovery of a Renaissance ceiling in Malostranska Beseda

An old Prague building Malostranska Beseda (in Lesser Town ) has been restored due to its bad condition. An unexpected discovery revealed an old Renaissance ceiling. The ceiling has been saved thanks to Maria Theresa who issued an edict that all wooden ceilings have to be plastered as a protection against fire.

The restoration of Malostranska Beseda revealed also parts of original Renaissance paving covered by decking. The costs of the Malostranska Beseda restoration will be more then 50 million Czech crowns and should be finished during the next year. Malostranska Beseda will be open again in September 2007 as a cultural centre of the Lesser Town. Next to the concerts and theatres customers can visit a restaurant or a cafe.

Malostranska Beseda used to be a town hall in The Prague Smaller City (Mensi Mesto prazske) for three centuries. Its current look comes from the beginning of the 19th century.
