Tickets were cheap for this place. We attended a symphony concert here and got box ticket seats for less than 20 GBP. The seats themselves are quite uncomfortable and small; the boxes aren't as large as they appear on the website. Further, there aren't any clear signs indicating where the seat is, my ticket said 'Box 2' but even the... More

The Municipal House Hall is an amazing building both inside and out. You can only visit the lobby unless you take a tour which is definitely worthwhile. There are English speaking guided tours scheduled daily and you will see and learn about many of the rooms. You may NOT take photos during the during unless you purchase a photo permit,... More

This basement restaurant in Obecni Dum is brilliant. The Art Deco architecture and decoration is fantastic. The menu has plenty of choice including traditional Czech dishes with knedlicky (bread dumplings) and the food served is excellent. We had lunch there. Twice! And good Czech beer is available. The service at lunch time was excellent. It can be very busy in... More

Went here to hear the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra and what a night. From the beautiful surroundings to the fantastic music we have memories that will last forever.

This is a fantastic example of Prague Art Nouveau. I have visited a number of other Art Nouveau sites in Europe and this once is magnificent. Before visiting, I was not familiar with a number of the artists who contributed, but I will be watching for their work now. We took a guided tour so we could see many of... More

The Municipal House is one of Prague's great (and there are many) landmarks. The exterior is stunning, particularly floodlit at night. A tour is essential to enjoy the wonders of the building inside. The building is of the Art Nouveau architecture style. The building exterior has allegorical art and stucco. There is a mosaic called Homage to Prague by Karel... More

We went to a concert in Smetana hall in the Municipal House of Mozart and Dvorak. It turned out to be the Prague chamber orchestra not a full orchestra. They were 8 extremely talented musicians. They played Mozart and Dvorak for just over an hour. The acoustics in the hall were amazing. We all enjoyed the music so much. It... More

Sumptuous and glamorous. I was there for dinner and the chandeliers sparkled, the piano tinkled and the waiters smiled. Perfect for honeymooners, anniversaries and surprise birthday treats and not as expensive as the Ritz.

Make sure you book a tour of this building to get to see areas that you would not otherwise be privy to see. They are just wonderful, especially the room designed by Mucha. It costs about £8 but the guide is great and very informative. Tour takes about an hour.
