Puro Art
Collection

The PURO art collection plays an integral role in each of our hotels. It draws upon the breadth of the visual arts – comprising a variety of pieces that differ in form – to present the talents of creatives whom we admire and support. The selected works exist in dialogue with the cities in which they are situated, inviting guests and the local community to explore and learn more about the surrounding culture. The collection is open for all curious minds to embrace.

For years, Prague has been a fashionable destination for a city break or a weekend trip. The city is back on its feet after the lockdowns and the phases of the pandemic. The tourists come for the beautiful architecture (Gothic and Baroque churches, modernist buildings), the colorful history, cuisine, the beer-brewing tradition, and the locals’ laid-back attitude. For some time now we have seen a growing interest in Czechia, and in Prague in particular, among contemporary art lovers. The local art scene, art institutions, and private galleries are vibrant and quite active, and the city itself is buzzing with visual arts and electronic music.
