Balassi Institute / About

About

The institute is located in the city centre, at the corner of very busy Old-Town streets Rytířská and Na Můstku connecting the Old Town and St. Wenceslas Squares. The main building, Rytířská 27/962, is calIed At the Two Red Lions. According to sources from the Prague City Archives, the permission to use the number 962 and the name “At the Two Red Lions” was granted to the owner of the house Gabriel Rauš in 1836 (entered on 31 Dec 1836, manuscript no. 4162 – page (folio) 182). The original house was remodelled and a superstructure added in the 1920s.  At that time, the ground floor had several independent shops and the upper floor housed a fabric shop till 1948. In the following years, the building was used for offices and storage. The original house sign was discovered in 1955 during repair works on the first-floor facade. Adjusted to the needs of the Hungarian cultural centre since the early 1970s, both buildings serve cultural and exhibition purposes to this day.

Every week, the Balassi Institute in Prague offers visitors a rich cultural programme through performances by Hungarian artists and presentations of major Hungarian works, thus opening the rich Hungarian cultural resources to both the Czech and the international audience. Additionally, the institute offers a full-year course of the Hungarian language and services of a rich library that contains writings by mostly Hungarian writers in Czech and Hungarian.
