Former Federal Assembly building opens its doors to the public

15-08-2009

The former Czechoslovak Federal Assembly building opened its doors to the public for the first time this Saturday. After the fall of communism in Czechoslovakia, the building, which sits at the top of Prague’s Wenceslas Square, was handed symbolically to US broadcaster Radio Free Europe. In June, after years of broadcasting from this location, Radio Free Europe handed the keys over to the Czech National Museum. On Saturday at 10:00 CET the building opened its doors to the public for the first time. The National Museum organized a series of guided tours for visitors focusing on the building’s history. Such guided trips around the building will now be available seven days a week. A tour of the old Parliament building costs 80 crowns (4.4 USD).
