Skip downtown and discover the beauty of the representative hundred-year-old-plus villas in the quarter Bubeneč (Prague 6 and 7). Walking around them is an unforgettable experience. Most of them are in perfect condition, respecting the original design. Villa Pellé (1889) in Pelléova street is also a very memorable object. The residence’s purpose was changed to a modern, contemporary art gallery a couple of years ago.
During my first visit, I found myself admiring the architectural details, decors and character of the inner spaces more than the exhibition. Then I crisscrossed the exhibition one more time to see it all. I like to absorb the pleasant atmosphere without any rush. To be honest, I follow Villa Pellé on social media with “see first”, because it also gets very creative with concerts, theatres, performances and many interesting educational activities. The administration of Prague 6 is very proud of Villa Pellé’s best interests.
In combination with the cozy café with an exit to the green garden, you can calm down, relax and think about the exhibition or event you saw. It is opened just seasonally from Thursday to Sunday from 10.00 to 19.00. And a few more interesting things to end with: Villa Pellé is named after its the most famous resident – French general Maurice César Joseph Pellé (1863–1924). An upgraded experience includes saying YES in a ceremonial room and having a wedding celebration in the next room with a capacity of 80 persons.
