This is not your average government building. We did not partake of a meal in either the first floor restaurant or coffee shop, but chose instead to take the building tour. Perhaps the most beautifully executed design and architecture in our experience, and rivals some of the great basilicas, synagogues and cathedrals in Europe for its beauty and character. It's...

I had the opportunity to try the breakfast set menu (fresh coffee, fress bread and delicous eggs) - excellent choice. Tasty food, beautiful interiors and friendly staff - a must see in Prague!

Prague is full of amazing architecture and this is a prime example of art nouveau style. Cafes and hall beautifully decorated and music insight and out.

I went to an hour long concert of classical musical that featured opera and ballet. I had very mixed feelings for it. For the concert it was just okay. My favorite portion of it was the opera singer, who I thought that did a great job. Unfortunately, for the amount of money for a ticket it is not worth the... More

You can get a sense of the grandeur of this Art Nouveau wonder by popping into the lobby and wandering around a few rooms until you get told to put your camera away. I was told the next tour was in a couple of days. Going by what other reviewers say it seems quite difficult to get on a tour.... More

The Municipal House is a fantastic example of Art Nouveau architecture. We came across it by accident and wandered in for a quick look around. Even if you're not planning on a drink in the American bar downstairs or taking in a concert at the concert hall, it's worth popping in to see the ornate decoration.

That's what they claim and I don't doubt it. Restored after the Revolution, all of the rooms in this building, from the concert halls to the café to the American bar and even the beer hall and especially the gift shop are treasures in and of themselves. If you like Art Nouveau, you will get your fill in this big... More

We were not able to go inside. The tour we were with said not enough people signed up to go in. But would have been helpful to know you can to to the Municipal house yourself and sign up for a guided tour. They only have a set amount for the day so sign up early in the morning or... More

I've never seen an Art Nouveau building in such wonderful order. Full of original features - very impressive for architecture or antiques lovers

The design and upkeep of this super building were excellent. It also contained a great concert hall but it could only be seen by paying. Art Nouveau restaurants were beatiful and not too pricey but no photos were allowed
