modern history of boromeum
The original Borromeaum went through another century of history, when it was first leased from the church and later owned mainly by C.K. post. The house, which was known in Hradec Králové as the "Old Post Office", was used on the ground floor by the post office, the upper floor served as the offices of various companies, but also for residential purposes. It can be said that the house survived without proper maintenance only due to its original massive construction.
In 2004, the building was purchased by a private company owned by the city of Hradec Králové. Immediately after the sale and after the necessary renovation of the cellars, attics and unused areas, the new owner proceeded to an extensive and costly repair and reconstruction of part of the building. In the middle of 2005, after reconstruction works, the ground floor of the building was put into operation, which is used mainly for gastronomic purposes. In the second half of 2006, the reconstruction and modernization of the entire inner northern part of the building was completed, preserving most of the original layout.
In the years 2010 to 2011, another extensive reconstruction took place, including the expansion of housing capacity, new roofs, external facades, an extension of the elevator and the artistic renewal of the sculptural decoration. With the completion of several years of demanding reconstruction of Boromea, today under the name "BOROMEUM RESIDENCE", the building returns not only its old name, but also the opportunity to use forty modern apartments. One of its historical dominants thus came into modern use in Hradec Králové.
