The palace used to be equipped by very luxurious furniture and facilities, but unfortunately, none of that preserved until these days. In the basement, there used to be very safe vaults.

The family of Petschek sold the palace to the State before the WWII and then emigrated. For six years, starting in 1939, the gestapo had its headquarters in there. Except from controlling secret operation, the cruel torture of Czech patriots took place there as well. Nowadays, in the former torture chamber, there is a memorial of anti-fascist resistance.

In these days, one part of the Ministry of Industry and Commerce of the Czech Republic is situated in the palace. It was declared the National cultural memorial in 1989.
