Velké náměstí 113,
Písek, 397 01
The Sladovna’s seven-story building is located directly in the historic centre of the city of Písek. The organization was founded in order to use the beautiful space of a renovated malthouse building for the benefit of cultural life in Písek. The first two permanent exhibitions were open in 2009. The programmatic concept „gallery as a play,“ which has been applied in Sladovna since 2013, has had a significant impact on tourism in the city. The Písek Sladovna has set out on a journey to create a new form of live cultural centre, producing and facilitating values to visitors of all generations. We provide quality, professional culture—to strengthen value systems, ethics, and social integrity—and at the same time we make sure that culture is accessible to all. Through stories, images, and a play we desire to connect tradition with the presence, art with daily life, the city of Písek with the world. Interaction and play are for us the main means to learning, connecting, inspiring, and sharing joy of life. Sladovna strives to be for our visitors a space where culture and art become once again an integral part of every family’s life.
