Department store Tesco is a cultural monument

The department store Tesco (former Maj) in the centre of the city on Narodni trida confronted the thread of being demolished or at least very changed. Architect Rostislav Svacha raised an objection against it this March. Also thanks to his action, the Ministry of Culture declared this building a cultural monument.

The building is a good example of the architecture of the 70’s in the 20th century – in the communist regime. It was built in 22 months, the ceremonial opening was on 21st April 1975.

There are a lot of discussion concerning the building. If Tesco company wants to change the building it must be done carefully with respect to the cultural monument now. Parties involved can still appeal against the decision of the Ministry of Culture till 27th October.
