Epitome of A.N. externally and internally. A wow. Wandering around the building was a delight. Also saw the exhibition Art Nouveau on until 2015. Highly recommended.

When going to Prague most will walk by and see the Municipal house but most missed out on actually admiring the true beauty that comes from its purpose in the inside, a concert hall. The symphony and other venues occupy this grand hall often throughout the year and tickets seem to be readily available for those interested. The detail inside... More

I enjoyed a wonderful concert here listening to my daughter's high school symphony perform, with another orchastra from Leipzeig. While this performance hall has ben restored, it is not a "gold-guilded, mosaic-tiled, glittery" space. The stage is backed by the hall's center-piece; it's huge organ pipes. The seating is simple rows of wooden folding chairs. I would not bother paying... More

The interior décor of this building is wonderful. There is room that was designed by Alfons Mucha, but the other rooms and main auditorium is beautiful.

The building is amazing, there was an exhibition of Art Nouveau and it couldn't get any better. I spent more than 3 hours enjoying all the beautiful artifacts. It felt like a dream

Great building designed by Alphonse Mucha - really impressive! We walked around in the building for nearly an hour: no entrance-fee!

It was a very informative tour and the halls are beautiful. Also got a lot of insight to the Czech history and arts.

Our time in Prague was limited, and we didn't want to miss this opportunity to visit here. So we got online tickets in advance. Yes, the building is beautiful and we highly recommend the tour to go inside. Everybody else got explanations in their own language. Asked our guide for English one but was told it's not available because tour... More

An amazing building. Grand, opulent, art nouveau. We visited especially for the Art Nouveau Exhibition (which was excellent and shockingly empty of visitors. Had it been at the V&A there would be queues). The orchestra was rehearsing in the beautiful main hall. The cafe/brasserie: a lovely interior but smelled of school dinners, and having planned to eat in the elegant... More

We found this after visiting the Mucha Museum (which is also brilliant by the way). There we found that Mucha had been involved in the external and internal design features of the municipal House/ palace. When we found it near Namessi Republicki we ventured inside and downstairs found a gem of a bar called the bar Americki which is straight... More
