    About this event

    While most consulates are located inside unimpressive modern offices, the Czech Consulate in New York City can’t say the same — after all, its housed inside a historic building that’s stood in the Upper East Side for over a century. From recreated rooms to those packed with rare Czech artifacts from the legendary composer, Antonín Dvořák, it’s time to explore one of New York’s coolest consulates.

    Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive tour through the Czech Republic Consulate’s Bohemian National Hall, a social hall built in 1896 for the Czech and Slovak communities in New York City’s Upper East Side — a purpose it still serves to this very day.

    Led by the Czech Republic Consulate Deputy Consul General, our unique experience will include:

    • A discussion around the roles and responsibilities of a consulate and how it differs from an embassy
    • A walkthrough of the recreated Grand Ballroom from the days as a social hall
    • A visit to the consulate’s modern rooms, including the art gallery, cinema, library, unique spiral staircase, and rooftop terrace
    • A special peek inside the secret Antonín Dvořák room, which displays a variety of artifacts and memorabilia from Dvořák’s years in New York City, including the original marble mantelpiece and a bronze plaque that graced his East 17th Street home before it was razed
