Technical Monuments – Municipal slaughterhouse, starch factory, and Masná burza (Meat market)

  • This collection of historicist buildings from 1895–1909 comprising a slaughterhouse, meat market, and stable on the bank of the Svitava

  • On Masná street stands the functionalist meat market from 1924 designed by Bohuslav Fuchs

  • The starch factory and slaughterhouse are used for administration and production

This collection of historicist buildings from 1895–1909 comprising a slaughterhouse, meat market, and stable on the bank of the Svitava gives off a romantic fairy tale-like impression.

Vaulted halls with bricks in two colours complement the impressive, decorated top of the unused water tower. Livestock vehicles used to be pulled by steam locomotives along tram lines down Křenová street to Masná street, and the whole area was closed off and guarded. In contrast, the neighbouring starch factory has undergone sensitive renovations and now offers a pleasant retreat consistent with the entirely industrial history of this former factory area.

On Masná street between the former starch factory and slaughterhouse stands the functionalist meat market from 1924 designed by Bohuslav Fuchs. The starch factory and slaughterhouse are used for administration and production, including a microbrewery open to the public.
