The Barracks had been under the army’s ownership for more than two hundred years (1780s — 1996). There were many famous Czech personalities within the army crew, for example J.K.

A tender had been announced for property sale, its reconstruction and extension. It was a renown developer European Property Development (“EPD”), that won a tender. […]
