The Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic

Literature Night 2022 / Prague / The Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic

The Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic. The main seat of the ministry is the Nostitz Palace, built between 1660 and 1676 by Johann Hartwig von Nostitz, High Chancellor of Bohemia. The palace´s late Baroque reconstruction took place around 1760; the classicist modifications of the facade date from the end of the 18th century. The palace housed the Nostitz art collections, a numismatic collection, and a picture gallery, which still contains paintings on loan from the National Gallery. The Nostitz library, with 15,000 volumes, remains in the building and is administered by the National Museum. After 1945 the palace was confiscated by the state. From 1998 – 2002, the building underwent a general reconstruction for the needs of the Ministry of Culture. In its interior, contemporary works of art are installed, and in the corridor and atrium, sculptures by Karel Nepraš and Olbram Zoubek are exhibited
