Capital City of Prague


About us

The Prague City Archives collects, preserves, processes and makes available archival materials documenting the historical development of Prague since the medieval era up to the present days.

The Archives is one of the Departments of the Prague City Hall. The Archives monitors the disposals of the documents of the City of Prague authorities, Prague municipal district authorities and organisations operating across the territory of the capital, which are established, managed or can be abolished by the City of Prague or its municipal districts. The Archives also takes care of archival materials of the historical predecessors to Prague authorities and organisations, and selects documents with permanent information and historical value belonging to other legal entities and individuals whose activities are related to Prague. At present, the archival collections and databases consist of almost 18,000 metres and more than 430,000 library units.
