A magnificent example of Art Nouveau architecture on a grand scale, wonderfully preserved. We only visited the public areas (not the main auditorium), but the decoration is wondrous to behold. It really takes one back to a period of wonderful elegance. The famous graphic artist Alphonse Mucha made a major contribution to the decoration here

We went to see an art exhibition, so climbed up the stairs to the 2nd Floor. Very grand, almost off a film set. Stunning to look around, interesting shop, and FABULOUS coffee shop.

Myself and my partner visited the lovely Municipal House for coffee and cakes. The cakes are gorgeous and handmade and served fresh to you when you want. Ridiculously well priced - only 100 czk for a large piece of handmade and fresh cake ! The staff were attentive and polite. Would recommend this place to anyone interested in art deco... More

When trying to book a concert my husband and I were amazed that on that Sunday there were 40 classical music concerts just in the city of Prague. Not knowing the city very well we just chose the theater closer to our hotel. It happened to be the Municipal House. What a beautiful place! He went in the morning to... More

This stunning Art Nouveau building is a delight and worth a visit even if you aren't into interior design! U feel like u should dress up just to walk in the door! We had breakfast in the cafe which was full of sparkling chandeliers. Breakfast was generous and tasty - especially the Apple strudel. The coffee wasn't that good -... More

We had dinner in the cafe of the Municipal Hall. The waiters were friendly and efficient and our meal of lamb casserole and spinach croquettes was very tasty. Prices in the cafe are much less than those in the restaurant. The cafe has wonderful lights and is decorated with lots of mirrors in the art nouveau style. It was pleasant... More

Not a destination, but if one is in the area do stop by to admire the beautiful building with a period elevator and interesting mosaics.

We visited the cafe for a coffee and a piece of honey cake. Both really nice. Whilst we were there we checked out the Restaurant next door and the concert venue upstairs. It looked good so we booked both for later in the day. January appears to be a quiet time in Prague and particularly Sunday. The concert was really... More

We happened upon the Municipal Hall by chance, as in my opinion it is not recommended highly enough. It is definitely worth taking the tour, which you have to pay for and which takes approximately an hour. The interiors are stunning and a great example of the early 1900's Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.

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.
