The Municipal House was an expression of the confidence of the Czech nation and was conceived as its celebration. The spectacular decoration and politically motivated names of halls corresponded to that. It stands at the site of the royal residence called King's Court and it was built from 1905 to 1911 according to the project of architect Antonín Balšánek and Osvald Polívka.
One of the most interesting lounges is the Mayor Hall, which was decorated by Alfons Mucha. Following artists contributed to the decoration of the building: Mikoláš Aleš, Jan Preisler, Karel Špillar, Max Švabinský, František Ženíšek – painters; Josef Mařatka, Josef Václav Myslbek, Karel Novák, Ladislav Šaloun - sculptors.
