The Petschek Villa is a palatial home built by Otto Petschek in the early 1920s in Prague. Since 1945 it has been the residence of the United States Ambassadors first to Czechoslovakia, and subsequently, to the Czech Republic.
The house was built by Otto Petschek, a member of a German-speaking, Jewish family, with financial interests in coal mines and banking. The Petschek family departed Prague in 1938, fearing conquest by Nazi Germany. They immigrated to the United States.
