Amazing

That was my favourite piece of art. I love this style and it was amazing at night time. You can go to the concert and enjoy the music and the architecture at the same moment.

if you like art noveau, this is unmissable. there are several guided tours a day - pricey at about 8 euros for an hour tour and extra if you want to make pictures. most deco details have been renovated, hardly anything is original apart from the many lamps. nevertheless, worth it if you like this kind of architecture.

This is an excellent exhibition, with secessionist / jugendstil / art nouveaux pieces from the Museum of Decorative Arts, which is closed for refurbishment. It has posters, furniture, clothes, jewellery, glass and more. All good. Great shop, too.

The outside it's nice. We been here for a concert, the guys playing were good, but the room we've been in not so, also they just put some improvised seats so if u want to see a concert just find a better place.

Out of many art noveau decorated buildings and interiors this is propbaly the one. And they know it, so while you can have a good look inside without paying or purchasing anything, you can also spend money in its restaurants, bars and cafees or concerts. All can recommend to some extent - quality is reasonable, price is higher than in... More

Have morning coffee and cake or afternoon tea in the beautiful nouveau cafe or spend more money for a posh meal in the even more beautiful restaurant. Wonderful architecture and good service.

My wife and I decided on the spur of the moment to attend a concert of the Prague Music Chamber Orchestra who were playing some classical music by composers such as Bach, Mozart, Pachelbel, Dvorak and Strauss. The municipal building is beautiful and very ornate and you can join a guided tour for €7. The concert was in the basement... More
