Overview

This place is for real enthusiasts of the Czech avant-garde movement of the twenties and thirties. Jaroslav Jezek (1906-42) was a major writer of political satires and anti-fascist dramas in the years leading up to the Nazi dismemberment and subsequent invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1938-39. Jezek asked the architect and designer Frantisek Zelenka to make over a small room in his flat in functionalist style. It is known as the "Blue Room" for its dominant color, which Jezek found soothing to his extremely weak eyes. Jezek's piano and record collection are also on display.
