The 700 square metre space, complete with a downstairs reception area, and work areas for some 20 head office employees, will cost the party almost 200,000 crowns per month. The lease signed is for a three-year period, but the head of the right-wing party, Petr Fiala, made clear he hoped the site would be home to the Civic Democrats for longer.
