Czech House: 5 Things We Know So Far

On April 22, the Czech Olympic Committee (COC) officially announced the opening of Czech House, or "Český dům", at Paris 2024. A popular Hospitality House at the Olympic Games, organizers welcomed 35,000 visitors at Pyeongchang 2018 and 40,000 visitors at Rio de Janiero 2016.


What We Know: Location


Czech House will be located in the "North East" cluster of Hospitality Houses at Paris 2024. Specifically, it will call the venue Cabaret Sauvage its home, in Parc de la Villette. Overlooking the Canal de l'Ourcq, Cabaret Sauvage is a circular-shaped live concert hall, with capacity for up to 1,200. It hosts musical acts, shows and themed nights.


Interestingly, Cabaret Sauvage will host TeamNL House for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games. A popular venue for events and experiences, it seems!

As noted in the press release:

"'The organizing committee in France approached us as the first country to ask if we would like to be part of the La Villette park, where the largest fan zone with other national [Hospitality] Houses is being created,' explained Jiří Kejval, chairman of the Czech Olympic Committee."

What We Know: It's Public and Ticketed


Czech House will be open to the public at Paris 2024 from 12:00pm to midnight. Guests will require tickets, which will go on sale on May 1. From Blanka Konečná, the head of Czech House:

Tickets purchased online guarantee entry at any time during opening hours on that day, which will be of great benefit in the evenings when we expect to be full. Fans can spend as much time as they want in the Czech House.'"

A very cool offering: Czech House organizers have also announced the presence of 16 microbreweries from across Czechia:


"Český dům will offer tastings of Czech beer. 'We have agreed with sixteen microbreweries across the country that together we will show in Paris how good beer is brewed in the Czech Republic. The breweries in the house will change during the Games and the offerings will be really varied.'"
