El Instituto Cervantes in Prague

Cervantes Institute is an cultural institution, which was created in 1991 by Spanish government, to promote Spanish language and Hispanic culture around the word. It has its branches around the word. The Czech one was created in Prague in 2005, and officially opened in September 2005 by Spanish prince and princess themselves. It is located in a beautiful building in Na Rybnicku street number 6, in Prague 2, very close to Jecna Street, best accessible from Metro stations IP Pavlova or Karlovo Namesti.

Cervantes Institute is well known for its courses of Spanish language, but it may be interesting also for those who are not interesting in learning Spanish language, but have some interest in inspiring Hispanic culture, and wish to enjoy its touch in the centre of Prague.

There are held Art exhibitions. At the moment it is the one called Palome Herida (Which could means Wounded Soul), presenting Artworks of Paloma Naveres, who was inspired by the world of literature. The exhibition is quite interesting, and there is no entrance fee, entrance is for free.

And if you have some Czech or Spanish language knowledge, Institute offer much more for you. There are interesting lectures on Hispanic culture as well as Hispanic movies screened. And all of this for free. Movies are quite interesting, but they are mostly only in Spanish, without subtitles.
