The author of this corner building on Myslíkova Street is none other than Josef Schulz, whose masterpiece, the National Museum, stands in Wenceslas Square. Schulz designed the building in his typical Neo-Renaissance style for Vincenc Bubeníček, an important wood merchant from Prague. The ground floor used to house a famous old Czech restaurant called “U Bubeníčků”. The first thing you will notice on this vast, recently reconstructed apartment building are the outside sculptures and busts of legionaries. These refer to a period when the house was owned by the Central Credit Union of the Czechoslovak Legionaries’ Crew. In contrast with the historic value of the building, you will also be able to look inside the apartments, which are designed in a modern style.
