GALA DINNER – PALÁC ŽOFÍN

The island in the river Vltava was formed in the 18th century. Damaged by floods in 1784, it was protected with a wall and planted with trees. In 1830, the island, then known as Barvířský Ostrov (Dyer's Island), was bought by Václav Novotný, a miller. He created a Neo-Renaissance building here in 1836–1837; it was named aft er Princess Sophie (Žofie in Czech), mother of Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph I.

The single-storey building had a concert hall and social hall, and was opened in 1837 with a ball. On 5 November 1882 the first performance of Smetana’s My Country in its entirety took place at Žofín, and four years previously, on 17 November 1878, Antonín Dvořák had held his first concert here. The hall at Žofín also hosted performances of Zdeněk Fibich’s works; Berlioz, Liszt, Tchaikovsky and Wagner all appeared here, and Jan Kubelík made his debut here. Žofín was also a venue for balls and dances.
