V J Rott

Vincenc Josef Rott started an iron goods store in 1840, which went from a small family business to one of Czechoslovakia’s largest enterprises. In 1896, the V. J. Rott house was renovated and the colorful fresco facade by Mikulaš Aleš was added.

In 1949, the Rotts barely escaped being arrested and hanged by the Communists. They set up business in Switzerland where it still operates.

The beautiful V.J. Rott building in Prague is now a hotel and houses a crystal shop.
