Krčkovna vila Fiala

Krčkovna is a South Bohemian movement attempting to save and preserve the former restaurant, built in 1906 by Karel Fiala. The locality, which has much of historical value of at least a regional significance, is owned by the municipality, but even so, finds itself threatened by demolition.

The association has offered quite a viable solution, one which is attractive for the local community and sensitive to tradition. Their aim is to gradually repair the previous structure, and restore its original function as a recreational space, one which would be supported by a cultural program devoted to presenting the history of Blatná, of 20th-century architecture, and to present the works and life of the architect Karel Fiala. A rose garden will bloom on the surrounding property, which will be reminiscent of the rose cultivator Jan Böhm.
