Today's story will take you to Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic. What's there to discover? The story of an incredible historical building, space, and community: welcome to Opero.
Community Curation - Premium Spaces - Reviving Buildings
Traveling around the world of coworking spaces has taught us an important lesson: some buildings are inherently suited to be coworking spaces. When we first stumbled upon the space you are about to discover, we were struck by the dedication of the founding team to restoring Central Europe's oldest printing factory, a remarkable feat, considering that preserving historic buildings in today's world is often more challenging than starting from scratch. However, the combination of a building owner who is still part of the family that once owned the printing factory and a founding trio who were passionate about giving this space a second life to showcase its unique beauty led to the birth of Opero. Today, it is a truly exceptional coworking space that brings together a vibrant community in the heart of Prague.
How did Opero come into being, and where does it stand today?

➡️ A little refresher
Who’s behind the featured space?
Meet Pavel Přikryl, Pavel Bouška and Luboš Černý.
“Pavel P. and Luboš had known each other from different projects when they came up with the idea of a representative business club and coworking. At that time, they consulted another project of Pavel B. and introduced him to this idea. Back then, there weren't many business hubs in the Czech Republic. Pavel B. was excited about it and pledged to finance. Less than a year later, Opero opened its door to the first members.”
