You can find the Small Sports Hall behind Tipsport Arena, on the right side of the Industrial Palace. The multipurpose hall is currently used for sports, as well as cultural and social events. In the winter season there is ice rink, with public skating and ice hockey practice on the weekends. In 2022, we renovated and opened the "Střídačka” space, previously known as the restaurant in the Small Sports Hall. Střídačka now offers a diverse range of activities, workshops and day camps.


In 1891, the Pavilion of Czech Paper Workers stood on this site, enticing visitors to the General Land Centennial Exhibition with its opulent architectural concept in the style of an ancient Egyptian temple. The Small Sports Hall was built in 1983–1985 in the immediate vicinity of the large hall, on the left when looking from the Industrial Palace.

Since Czechoslovakia was entrusted with organising World Championships in 1985 by the International Ice Hockey Federation, it was necessary to construct interconnected ice surfaces. The Czechoslovak Ice Hockey Association therefore began, in cooperation with Prague City Hall, to prepare the construction of a second, smaller, ice stadium in Výstaviště, connected via a tunnel with the Sports Hall. The operation of the Small Sports Hall was launched with the World Championships, which was held here from 17 April to 3 May 1985.

Between 2001 and 2014, the Small Sports Hall was sometimes referred to as "Incheba Arena", according to the name of the company that was leasing and managing all of Výstaviště at this time.
