The Kellner Family Foundation to establish – instead of school – an open-air gallery in Prague...

The Kellner Family Foundation – the philanthropic foundation of Renáta and Petr Kellner – has outlined a new plan for the former Hotel Praha in Prague. The Kellner Family Foundation will dedicate part of the grounds to a new open-air gallery for the benefit of the public, as well as building a new public playground. As part of the plan, the nearby Hadovka mansion, the former Canadian Embassy, will be turned into a healthcare institution. The project replaces prior plans to build the Open Gate II school on the site.
