Perfect place for architecture lovers. Villa with absolutely unbelievable history (including 2nd world war era, when Messerschmitt lived there), great details in the interior and technical solutions, A/C, heating with possibility of changing aroma, onyx wall brought from Atlas changing colour with sun shining through which survived nazis, russians and comunist era, great view from each floor, very simple but still extremely smart solutions and interestingly - in early 30s it was the most expensive villa worldwide. Highly recommended, book well in advance (few months at least).

The Villa is a triumph of the modern movement, breathtakingly special. The ideas, space and design of the villa are a triumph.

We were quite lucky, because the weather was nice (you have to plan the visit several weeks in advance) and the garden was blooming. There was also installation of self-playing piano in the garden (set of strings connected to piano that acts as an amplifier - operated by wind or by set of little motors). Enough with exteriors, let's move to interior... There's plenty original pieces of furniture designed specifically for this villa (some is still in production today!), but the best stuff is yet to come:
The house has 3 revolutionary elements (considered 1930s)
1) partially translucent onyx wall (to see and fully enjoy its effect, visit the villa before sunset)
2) two huge sliding windows (works similar to automobile window, but weights a few tonnes), thus you can enjoy fresh air in the living room and so on
3) ultra-modern air-conditioning system that distributes fresh air (or warm air or various mixtures of both) inside the building with possibility to add scents of flowers or wood.

Well, no wonder it is UNESCO world heritage site.

Book well in advance as tickets are as rare as hen's teeth, but well worth it.
A must-see, even if you only see the outside. It is in a beautiful residential area and a short walk from Lužánky park up the spectacular Schodová street. Enjoy!

This place is definitely worth seeing. It is very interesting when you find out that this is something that is architectural designed in 1920s and even today looks modern. Also it is interesting that this is the place where it is signed bilateral agreement about separation Czechoslovakia in 1993
