Villa Winternitz - architectural beauty and tragic history place
kwi 2018 • Znajomi
In April we visited Villa Winternitz in Smichov. It is located in the wonderful place not far from the center of Prague on the hill from where you could see the whole city. Villa was built 1932 for a family of lawyer Joseph Winternitz by Adolf Loos - who is considered as one of the modern architect and Karel Lhota.
In 1941 Nazi confiscated villa because the owner and his family were jewish. In 1943, Winternitz family was deported to Theresianstadt, and then to Auschwitz, where Dr. Josef Winternitz and his son Peter were murdered in the gas chamber. His wife Jenny and daughter Suzana survived and after liberation, they returned to Prague, but could never return to their villa.
Villa Winternitz is a wonderful sample of cubism. It is restored and maintained with high level of professional care. Furniture is not original, but it has collected and setup in accordance with original time.
Villa was converted in museum and it has a very interesting guidance and a lot of questions will be answered.

First Republic's simple elegance
kwi 2017 • Dla rodziny
This villa was designed by the famous Czech-Austrian modernist architect Adolf Loose. The design is light and simplistic. The villa was reopened in early 2017 to the public by the family of the original owner, and you can definitely feel the personal touch. The interior is breathtaking (as is the view over Prague from the top-floor terrace), with large windows and vintage furnishing from the 1930's well placed around all four floors. You can almost feel what it was like to live here. They hold exhibits (which need a bit of work), but just seeing the villa itself is worth while. There's also a one-room permanent exhibit about the family's history, which makes the visit that much more authentic. Even if it looks like it's far from the center, it won't take more than a 20 minutes to get there, and will show you very special chapter of Czech history (and architecture).
