While in Prague, we decided to the one thing that's sure to be on any culturally inclined tourist's list- attend a symphony or a ballet or a classical concert. Since it was last minute, we booked it through a helpful and patient lady at the tourist helpdesk near the astronomical clock in old town. We chose Beethoven & Mozart, since... More

We decided to stop in for dessert, wine and a beer late in the afternoon. The trolly cart came around and we ordered the Schwarzwald cake which is a black forest cake. It was delicious. The art deco restaurant is a gorgeous. They definitely don't make them like this any more. Definitely worth dropping by and enjoying the cake and... More

My husband and I made a point to see the symphony one night at the Municipal House and it was great! We ordered our tickets online and picked them up at the box office before the show. The whole building is beautiful - both inside and out. It was our first symphony and we had a great time. The orchestra... More

I did the tour here today (your ticket gets you 2 for 1 on a small selection of drinks in the American Bar which is a pleasant enough place). It's worth doing the tour of the place to see the wonderfully ornate performance spaces and function rooms. My guide spoke pretty good English, and was quite engaging. My only gripe,... More

Our experience started in the restaurant. We had a nice lunch, it was pleasant and the selection was good. The architecture does add to the experience and the lady coming around with the old fashioned t-trolley was really sweet and just because it was there made to order a desert! My only thing that I would say spoiled it slightly... More

The cafe is beautiful, but there is no need to eat or drink there to appreciate it. This building is best from outside, or from inside the concert hall. If you can see a show, you will appreciate the unusual design and gorgeous organ.

We went to the municipal house for a 'best of classics' concert. The building and hall are very lovely, apparently the most important Art Deco building in Prague. The concert was very enjoyable, the musicians skilled and the selection of music was tasteful and varied. We were under the impression when booking that it would be a full orchestra, but... More

Having seen the Mucha Museum and being a fan of Art Nouveau we came here for a tour of the building. Brilliant! The paintings, the furniture, the hardware. All really exciting. A bit of history and culture. Then downstairs to the Czech restaurant for skewered suckling pig, chicken, veg and chips after a big basket of bread and a few... More

Listened to the four seasons vivaldi and it was devine. The sound, skill, atmosphere was perfect. The location is central and it is very laid back. Nothing to fancy so you can pop home on way back from day out. The building is one the best art deco buildings and there is an excellent art deco shop inside not to... More
