The Old Sewage Cleaning Station

In the quiet residential neighborhood of Prague 6 there is a small industrial section where you will find the Old Sewage Cleaning Station Museum. Inside this whimsical brick complex you can see how the sewage of Prague was dealt with and appreciate one of the gems of Industrial Architecture in Prague. The all brick complex from the beginning of 1900s has been renovated and features guided tours where you can discover the magic of history with an intriguing tour that starts underground and also showcases two huge stationary steam engines from 1903 that are preserved in working condition, which are demonstrated from time to time. The multi-layered building features a labyrinth of massive underground brick rooms with beautiful arch work and small tunnels of still water underneath. The overall effect of the beautiful brickwork, the oddly shaped rooms and the occasional skylight with ivy growing out of it, is pure magic with a high level of neo Victorian creepiness! The main hall of this gorgeous industrial gem is also available to rent out for private functions.
