V. J. Rott Building at Malé Náměstí in Prague, Czech Republic

Follow the cobblestone street a short distance from Old Town Square to Malé náměstí. The triangular “Little Square” was established in the 14th century. The colorful facades that once housed chemists (pharmacists) are now restaurants, cafes and bars. Hard Rock Café occupies the V. J. Rott Building. It was built in 1890 for Ladislav Rott, founder of the V. J. Rott Company. The decorative frescos featuring common Bohemians are the work of Mikuláš Aleš. This prolific painter’s famous project is the façade of the National Theatre in Prague. Aleš is often called “the artist of his people.”


Malé nám. 142/3, 110 00 Staré Město, Czechia
