Žofín Palace is a Neo-Renaissance building perched on Slavic Island. It is protected as a cultural monument of the Czech Republic. The palace is an important venue for past and contemporary cultural and social life in Prague. The initiator of the building was representative Václav Antonín Novotný, former owner of the land. The palace was built in Classicist style between 1836–1837 and was named in honor of Archduchess Sophie. In 1884, the island and the palace were purchased by the City of Prague and rebuilt into the nowadays Neo-Renaissance style. Until the Municipal House was erected, Žofín Palace was a center of cultural and social events. To this day concerts, events, receptions and conferences are held there.
