Ústí nad Labem


The city developed into an important industrial location in Northern Bohemia in the first half of the 19th century. In the interwar period, some villas and apartment houses and a few public buildings were built.

This website lists the most outstanding buildings in the Ústí nad Labem region in Czech and German, including houses from the interwar period.

As in other places, active protagonists shaped the building scene of Ústí nad Labem's interwar period. The Social Democratic mayor Leopold Pölzl was able to hold his office until 1938. After that he was dismissed from office by the fanatical Nazis and the Gestapo and was no longer allowed to work. In the end, doctors in a hospital in Ústí nad Labem seem to have deliberately failed to help him, whereupon he died on 1 September 1944.

The main city architect during the term of office of the mayor was Franz Josef Arnold.
