entrance to the building
The main entrance to the building is behind the gate. In the right leaf of the gate, there is a 72 cm wide wicket. The lower edge of the entrance hole is 10 cm above the pavement’s surface. It is possible to open the entire gate, and the entrance will be at the same level as the pavement, and the width of the entrance opening will be 140 cm. The Theatre Academy should be informed about such a need in advance, by telephone or e-mail, when making an appointment or attending a cultural event. You can also use the intercom located on the wall of the tenement house to the left of the gate (at a height of approx. 130 cm) and inform the receptionist about the need to open the gate (the intercom is not marked).
After passing the gate, the main entrance to the Academy building is on the left and is not adapted to the needs of people in wheelchairs and with limited mobility (narrow passage, two stairs, no ramp and heavy door).
