In the heart of Prague will appear a new cultural pop-up market called Manifesto, combining design boutiques, bookshops, street food stalls and more, created in the long-awaited space at Prague Masaryk Station.
The site will open on June and will remain for about two years.
Non-profit reSITE creators have been inspired by similar projects located in world capitals (such as Boxpark in London). Manifesto will feature hip bars, restaurants, ice cream stands, burger joints, as well as booksellers and a design boutique.
The temporary market will also have an accompanying cultural program, including screenings, concerts, theatrical presentations, DJs, and more.
“We think that Prague deserves a place similar to what you can find in London, Taipei, Lisbon and other big cities,” explains Martin Barry, chief of reSITE, the company behind the project.
The main goal is to revitalize the area adjacent to Na Florenci street, close to Masaryk’s railway station. Temporary installation will be inside containers.
The land, which now serves as a parking lot mainly for postal vehicles, was bought by Penta group from Czech Railways. Penta plans to build a hotel, which would then be connected to Na Florenci Street by way of planned roofing over Masarykovo nádraží where the main part of a business district project is planned.
