Studios in the 1960s

In the 1960s, Supraphon ran several recording studios in Prague. The oldest of them was the one in Strahov, mainly made use of for making albums of popular music. Another, somewhat newer, studio was located in Dejvice. Records featuring the spoken word were produced at the specialised studio at the Lucerna, in the centre of Prague. Classical music was recorded in the excellent premises at the Rudolfinum. In the 1970s, Supraphon built a state-of-the-art studio, mainly designed for popular music, at the Mozarteum in Jungmannova street, in Prague 1. Some records were made at the Smetana Theatre. Later on, a new studio was built in Hrnčíře.
