New City Hall

The New City Hall is the seat of the Mayor of Prague, Prague City Council, political committees and clubs and some Prague City Hall departments. It is also where the City Assembly holds a public meeting every month. It was built between 1908 and 1911, designed by Osvald Polívka, and is decorated with sculptures by Ladislav Šaloun, Josef Mařatka and Stanislav Sucharda. An information centre is located on the ground floor and is open to the public, as are the main corridors. The rest of the building is closed to the public. Essential administrative functions take place in Škoda Palace.



Škoda Palace

The building, which was completed in 1926, designed by the architect Pavel Janák, originally served as the headquarters of the engineering company Škoda Works. After renovation works in 2006, most of Prague City Hall administration was moved to the palace. This is where, among many other services, citizens deal with identity cards, driving licences or Opencard. During office hours, citizens can also make use of the information centre and free children’s corner. For easiest communication with the City administration, citizens can visit the Public Service Unit at counters 12-20.
