If you like art nouveau, you need to make this place a priority. The front is suitably impressive, but go inside and walk around. Check out the lower level, enjoy a (slightly overpriced) drink in the evocative Bar Americaine, have a outdoor meal in the upstairs French place or the downstair beer hall. Soak up the classy ambiance. We attended... More

It is well worth taking the tour. The rooms are beautiful, decorated in a variety of styles. The Alphonse Mucha room is fabulous. The cafe is a lovely place to have coffee and the cake is amazing.

Saw a show. I saw it advertised on the side of the road that it started at 8, went in 5 minutes late. Great classical czech music. Beautiful hall.

My wife and I are regular concert-goers in NY and FL. We paid 2,000 Czk for 2 tickets expecting to see Vivaldi in the splendor of the concert hall. Instead, we were shuffled downstairs into the basement and then into a small room that held maybe 75 people in vinyl covered stackable chairs. The performers and the concert itself were... More

We stopped for some coffee and sweets at the Municipal House café and were a bit disappointed. We found the cakes a bit too sweet and with too much whipped cream. Prices were reasonable and service was good. Indoor seating is a great choice because the interior of the café is so beautiful!

Beautiful frescos on the exterior of the building. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity. The Municipal hall holds regular art gallery exhibitions.

My wife was really keen on taking this tour. I have to admit I just went along with her but I believe my experience is an honest reflection. After buying the tickets we were left to wait in a gift shop, call me cynical but no surprise to me. The guide arrived late and was pretty rude and abrasive. She... More

Had a wonderful tour of this beautiful building. Found this tour by mistake after wandering in off the street being nosy and finding a kiosk selling tickets for a tour starting in five minutes! I thoroughly recommend this tour, a history of this building, the architecture, the individual rooms and there uses etc. For an extra few pence you can... More

This fully restored Municipal Hall, now home to a great theatre, several restaurants and a coffee shop, is spectacular to see, both inside and out. Centrally located, it is a great spot to stop at for a fine coffee and cake. But do eat larger meals elsewhere for more reasonable prices. Peter and Gaye Victoria, B.C., Canada
