About Boromeum – Introduction to the Building History

In Hradec Králové there are 2 buildings named Boromeum, that is the original Borromaeum in the old town in Špitálská street and the new one situated on River Orlice Waterfront. Both buildings were originally used as residence halls for gymnasium students who were preparing themselves for further studies in seminary. The older one was opened in 1860, the newer one in 1902 as a substitute for its no-longer suitable predecessor.

These days both buildings are used for a different purpose. The older one had many owners in past and after its careful renovation lasting several years, it is used as Boromeum Residence, i.e. as residence housing combined with hotel operation, with its own restaurant, café and wine bar. The newer one is used for pedagogic purposes – Bohuslav Balbín Episcopal Gymnasium.
