We watched a concert at the Smetana Hall. Just getting to see the hall itself was a great experience. When you're in Prague, it's worth it to try to catch a concert.

Actually the building itself is very nice, and it was marvelous how empty it was - as if we were on a secret mission without anyone knowing about us. And then, the exhibition. If you're not particularly in love with secession and art deco, I don't think it would be worth the 150 CZK-s, but if you happen to like... More

We had Afternoon tea and cakes and more cakes from a serving trolley! Like past times! Beautiful art nouveau decorations and glass windows! In the basement a restaurant with nice Checkish food and The American bar. Go there to experience the Swining 20s

This is one of the lesser known attractions, but it is very well run, and professionally curated. Very educational, and a very good option while the main National Museum is closed for renovations. Superb for kids.

So much has been written about the Municipal House that I won't repeat what others have said. However, I must point out that although one can see beautiful elements in the foyer, reception areas, and exterior, you do not get a true feel for this structure unless you take the tour. It's worth the ticket price, easily, and supports the... More

I had read that it was not generally open to the public, but it is. If you like art deco and art nouveau (it has both elements), it is an astonishing frolic, both inside and out. I ate in one of the restaurants and the food was dreadful, but I didn't care because the surroundings were so lovely.

The most fantastic Art Nouveau building ever so well preserved and in constant use. We used the cafe, had a drink in the American bar and enjoyed the Art Nouveau exhibition. A must if you are visiting Prague

Nice building both outside and inside. Inside there is a restaurent, but it is not cheap. But outside is free of charge, and you can look a bit inside at the windows.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
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.
