Spent most nights here as it's near the hotel. Great to have a selection of classical music concerts even though the one with the ballet exerts was terrible worse than a school end of term concert!

It is an ornate and beautiful building. I went there to get my opera tickets, but for a governmental building, it was very beautiful.

This is a facinating building and a major monument of Art Nouveau in Prague. You have to go on a guided tour to see the major spaces, worth it. We also went to a pricy one hour tourist kind of concert--apparently all the churches and major musical venues do them--to see Smenena Hall--worth seeing. Go to the American Bar in... More

This is a stunning building, with a beautiful entrance. There are two eateries inside, one French and one cafe style. The decor in both are of an art nouveau feel with stunning chandeliers. Well worth a sit down just to marvel at this. Given the location prices are a little dearer by Prague prices though still cheap by UK standards.

This is the place to have a break while walking in Prague with coffee and a cake. You have to the cakes brought around in the trolley as they are excellent. Separate cost of 100KC but well worth it great surroundings to sit and watch the world go by.

Worth going to the cafe just to marvel at the chandeliers, very reasonably priced refreshments. Make sure you go to the central stairwell to look at the tiles, just beautiful.

Took a wonderful tour of this magnificent building. You won't see these rooms by peeking into doors. The grandest art deco/nouveau experience I've ever had.
