Venice Biennale’s Czech and Slovak pavilions close
Nearly 100-year-old building closed until 2025.
The Czech and Slovak pavilions used at the Venice Biennale Arts Festival have been closed for restoration work expected to take up to three years.
Completed and officially opened to the public for the 15th Venice Biennale in 1926, the Pavilion has not undergone any major reconstruction work in the nearly 100 years since its opening, allowing it to continue operating. Needs refurbishment.
The work of the modernist Otakar Novotny (1880 – 1959), this pavilion is located in a prestigious location on one of the two main axes of the Giardini Park. It has a rectangular plan, with an exhibition hall in the center and a simple inscription “Cecoslovacchia” from the time of its opening.
After an accident broke the skylight, it was decided to start work.

The Slovak National Museum says the reconstruction is unlikely to be completed by 2025. It will be executed.
