Neo-Baroque style ‘Hanavský Pavilion’ was constructed in 1891 from cast iron, masonry and glass in the Dutch Baroque style. The prince of Hanau donated the pavilion to the City of Prague before the Global General Exhibition ended. The construction was taken apart and then rebuilt on the new designated site at the edge of Letná in December 1891.
