A jaw-dropping masterpiece of artisan work that should not be missed. It is a true public building that appears to be well preserved and utilized. Attended an exhibit of decorative arts that included works by Mucha and his contemporaries. Admission fee was nominal. Self toured the upper floor areas open to the public before visiting the American Bar for a... More

This place you can visit only with a tour. We have done it twice, first by ourselves and then when came to Prague with our family. The building is beautiful and all the rooms are different. Don’t expect it to be as reach as a palace, it is more like a historical administrative building with many rooms for different purposes.... More

The tour gave us the opportunity to see all the beautiful rooms. The tour guide was a bit abrupt but knowledgable. Well worth it if you have an interest in architectural design.

Yes, the architecture is gorgeous, but so is every other building in Prague. The concert is great, but there is an even more ornate opera house (State Opera House) nearby for better concerts and cheaper tickets. There are restaurants, a concert hall, and an art museum housed here, but consider skipping this if you're in a crunch for time. Otherwise,... More

My partner and I attended a performance of Vivaldi and some other composers as played by a small chamber group of the Prague Symphony Orchestra, and the music was lovely. However, the tourists that packed the extraordinary hall were behaving like they'd never been anywhere before in their lives. Couples talked throughout the performance, multiple people left their seats, allowing... More

I went to a Vivaldi concert at the Municipal House having been handed a flyer outside. It was a good programme of music, and the chamber orchestra played very well, but the concert was a bit short given the cost of the tickets. A nice way to spend (part of) an evening if the pieces on offer appeal (they seem... More

We had no choice but to take a tour or see a show, so we took a tour. You can't go through it on your own like I wish we could. The voice of the guide was fine and she was very knowledgeable, dressed nicely but her voice was just annoying and she is not a sight for sore eyes.... More
