What Vzlet was

Built in 1921, Vzlet has served a number of purposes during the almost 100 years of its existence: it used to be a thriving motion picture place, a storehouse for film archives, and a multifunctional cultural space. In the last couple of years, it remained unoccupied. At the moment, the building is being renovated and awaits reopening in 2021.

Vzlet is going to offer:

Digital media
Virtual reality
Community activities

We are creating a new Prague multifunctional space for live art. 

Vzlet is:

For the locals

Look no further for the perfect place to meet: you have just found it

The place for your future performances

Program lines


Vzlet is not merely “another theatre” on the Prague map, but an institution with a wider outreach in terms of original drama and social function. 

We create new productions designed especially for this space, and we will look for and co-produce new projects with other theatres and groups. Vzlet will provide the creative home for the independent theatre company Vosto5.


Thanks to the activities of Collegium 1704 and the orchestra’s connections in the world of music, both in the Czech Republic and abroad, Vzlet will be an open space offering a wide range of activities in the fields of classical and contemporary music – concerts, educational projects for children, rehearsals open to the public, and more. 

Vzlet Gallery

The gallery will be located in the public space of Vršovice – on the side facade of the cultural centre. In terms of programme, there will be 4 projects every year, alternating after 3 months. The aim is to invite contemporary artists who will respond to the context of the place itself and create site specific works placed on the facade of Vzlet. 

Science, lectures, film, and media

Vzlet will serve as a platform for lectures and debates with inspiring people from science, art, and the public life. 

There will be an independent series of debates with chosen guests about important themes in society. We are also planning a separate series aimed at pupils and secondary school students.
