Prague, Czech Republic


Domeček (or Hradčanský domeček) is an informal name for a former small prison in Hradčany, district of Prague. The name in Czech means 'small house' and refers to the size of the building.

Domeček, placed next to the building of a military court, had served as a military prison during the Austro-Hungarian period. It was used by the Gestapo during World War II and since 1948 the Czechoslovakian security service (StB) employed it as a secret prison. It hosted 30 solitary cells.
