About Czech and Slovak Sokol Minnesota

Czech and Slovak Sokol Minnesota (Sokol MN) is affiliated with American Sokol, which grew out of an international movement founded in Prague in 1862 by Dr. Miroslav Tyrš.

Our unit was formed in 1882, and we are a social, cultural, educational and gymnastic organization. Through our many social activities and educational programs, we seek to preserve and transmit the vitality of our Czech, Slovak and immigrant heritage to future generations.

The historicČesko-SlovanskýPodporujícíSpolek (C.S.P.S.) Hall at 383 Michigan Street in the West Seventh neighborhoods of Saint Paul has been our home since 1879, and the focal point for our activities in Saint Paul since the current building was built in 1887. It was declared a National and State Historic Site in 1977, placed on the National Register of Historic Sites, and is the longest serving Czech-Slovak cultural center in the United States, and oldest fitness center, theater and immigrant national hall in the State of Minnesota.

Czech & Slovak Sokol Minnesota welcomes all who share an interest in history, culture, gymnastics and good fellowship. You need not be Czech or Slovak to be a member.
