One night – many experiences: public readings of contemporary literature performed by well known personalities at attractive and unusual venues in cities across Europe.


European Literature Night builds on the concept of literature being a unique creative medium which embraces the voices of individuals along with the values of the society they live in. The umbrella project “European Literature Nights 2012 – 2014” aims to bring contemporary European literature to the general public in an innovative way through a series of public readings and accompanying events. Supported by a grant from the Culture Programme of the European Union, the project partners hope to deliver high level of impact to their audiences. Although it is Brno, Bucharest, Dublin, Lisbon, Vilnius, Prague and Wroclaw who are jointly co-organizing the project “ELN 2012 – 2014”, the other partner cities where Literature Night already took root are of no lesser importance for the event’s development.

Church of Jan Hus Congregation

Farského 3
Praha 7

Its history dates back to 1920 when the Czechoslovak Church was established, since 1971 called the Czechoslovak Hussite Church. With a growing number of members soon came the need of a bigger space for services. The foundation stone was laid in May 1927; first tenants moved to the apartments of the new congregation house ten years later. The same year saw the opening of the church space with an original sculpture of the Crucified by J. V. Myslbek.
