Formerly the largest and most modern spa in Prague, City Spa Žižkov was once visited even by Emperor Franz Joseph I. After years of decay, the neoclassical corner house is finally going to be reconstructed. It is set to be turned into a House of Dance as part of a project prepared by the association Tanec Praha. The project represents a symbolic continuation of the original spa, also aiming to revive the surrounding public space. The pool area is going to be turned into dance halls, and the plans also include a public wellness studio. The goal is to create a modern cultural center focused not only on dance and art presentation but also on body care. The project has recently received funding, and the reconstruction is scheduled to be completed in 2025. Together with PONEC Theater and Krenovka, a community center located nearby, the House of Dance will be part of an imaginary dance axis of the lower part of Žižkov. Take a look inside this building with a rich history before it turns into a busy construction site!
