Czech writer Karel Čapek’s villa will briefly open to the public on Thursday, despite an ongoing reconstruction. Visitors will be able to admire Čapek’s library and personal archive with some of its original furnishings.
The 1920s villa, where Capek hosted intellectuals and cultural figures of the time, opened to the public on July 20th to mark the centenary of the birth of Czechoslovakia and the public interest was overwhelming. The renovation of the villa should be concluded by 2021.
