In the morning Mr Monkey scampered to Námĕstí Republiky where he spent a few minutes looking at the front of the Obcení dům (Municipal House). This was opened in 1912, and was designed by Osvald Polívka and Antonin Balšánek (who got the job after two public competitions failed to produce any good designs), and is covered in nationalistic Art Nouveau decorations.
You can read about the Municipal House at the Obcení dům website.
