I don`t know much about the inside (the palace now belongs to the National Gallery), but its facade is absolutely spectacular! The Kinsky Palace is definitely the most beautiful Rococo building in Prague!

Mixed in some contemporary work, which more than punctuated mostly Chinese objects. A very large mansion, they also displayed a wide ranging collection of Egyptian, Greek, and Roman objects. Not crowded, a lovely space to spend an hour and a half.

Prague was on of the cities in Europe without a gallery of classic sculpture. Fortunately, the Narodni Galerie opened an exhibition with pieces from Egypt, Greece, Middle East and Rome. Although the pieces are not first class, you have to thank that the info is in Czech and in English. There is also an exhibition called "The Art of Asia",... More

The exhibition titled "The Art of Asia" was interesting. "The Art of the Ancient World" was average.

When we arrived there was nobody manning the ticket booth so we went upstairs to the first floor and had to pay in the gift shop. The Alfons Mucha exhibition was great, with a wide variety of different works including, print, photo and sculpture. Salvador Dali was also being exhibited but we didn't opt for going to see his.

Situated right in the centre of the old town so no excuses for missing this! Again, lots of street food available in the main square.

The castle was absolutely spectacular. The tour takes you through the castle, the dungeon, the inner walls, the cathedral, overlook of Charles Bridge, and much more. There is a great deal of walking, but well worth the trip.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
