Even if I am short of time being in Prague, I always spend at least few minutes admiring this beautiful buidling. Especially if you a fan of the Art deco (Art Nouveau) style, do not miss it. Observing the exterior focus on the Neo­Gothic corridor connecting the Municipal House with the Powder Tower, the contrast of styles is impressive. Inside... More

We ended up spending quite a while here. A huge shop with some interesting items, some of which are well-priced. The basement bar is gorgeous and again fairly priced. Had supper here and saw a concert.

Attended a meeting here with about 500 coworkers. We broke into 3 groups, had dinner and award presentations. Entire facility is beautiful, full of character and able to handle large crowds. Everything was good with experience from social drinks prior to meeting to formal dinner. Centrally located. It is an easy eclipse from Hilton Old Town.

It is a must see for those who adore the Czech master of the Jugendstil. It is near to the Mucha Museum and can be bypassed during a nice city walk around the centre.

The instrument players were great but the guest singer, the guest violinist and the guest pianist, created a night to remember.

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.
