Bubeneč, a popular residential quarter, is notable for its high-quality villas by major architects. Suchardova vila (1904-1906) on the corner of Suchardova and Slávičkova street was built together with an atelier by well-known architect Jan Koteřa, the founder of Czech architectural modernism, for his friend, sculptor and medallist Stanislav Sucharda (1866–1916).
Regardless of which century we live in, large surfaces are still a privilege. Look at the shape and body of the majestic Suchardova vila. Most similar luxurious villas in the surrounding area are privately owned. Suchardova vila hosts the Stanislav Sucharda museum and it is open to the public by appointment. It is part of a cultural heritage. I like the whole quarter with the eye-catching silhouettes of houses, their architectural solutions and noble looks. The old trees in the gardens complete this splendid impression.
Suchardova vila is almost untouched by later changes, including the placement of his artwork. The climbing plant on the house is a barometer of the seasons. It is also an enriching experience just seeing it from outside.
A reservation is needed for visiting the villa. For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Stanislav Sucharda was the author of many statues and impressive monuments such as the František Palacký Monument in Prague.
The museum is open every first Thursday of the month, except for holidays.
