Průmyslový Palác to undergo reconstruction

Prague City hall has announced a 1.2 billion crown tender on the renovation of the Průmyslový Palác building on the city’s main fairgrounds. The left wing of the building was badly damaged by fire in 2008.

In view of the building’s historic value the renovation work will be a copy of the original and will be supervised by conservationists. The building, which dates back to 1891, underwent a major reconstruction in the 1950s. Reconstruction work on the building should start next year.
