This may be the smallest museum you ve ever visited but its worth every bit of the 100czk entrance fee. There are about 30 microscopes through which you can see amongst other things a flea with horse shoes and a picture on a poppy seed, you have to see it to believe it! The museum is situated near the monastry... More

We really enjoyed this place... yes its tiny.. a small room with around 30 displays.. but I think it works out about £3 each so hardly expensive and for the novelty factor its well worth visiting and seeing it! Some of the work is incredible... a zoo on a hair strand?!! I couldnt believe a lot of what I was... More

The work exhibited is way out of this world.. The museum is a bit hard to find, and it's hidden somewhere at the top of some stairs.. The museum itself is small, don't expect to spend hours there, but the miniatures! Such a precision work. It is worth the shot!

I dunno. I felt I saw everything I needed to see in about 3 minutes. Do yourself a favor and just google the images.

I thought this would be right up my street so we got the tram to the area to try to find it. After much wandering around and asking locals we gave up and started to head back for the tram. We then spotted it and realised that we had passed it at least twice while we were searching! (It is... More

This small museum is set down a laneway just off Loreta square in the opposite direction from the castle. There is no directional signage so we had to ask a nearby hotel for directions. It amazes us that it gets any business. Inside were two rooms lined with microscopes and small containers. Each one contained a miraculously detailed object set... More

Despite of its uniqueness and the interesting exhibits that are displayed in this museum, it is out of place with regards to Czech history and city of Prague and Strachov monastery in particular. I wish to see the items that at least have some connection to Czech republic and not only to the history of Russia. In this these turbulent... More

Yes, the whole time you spend here may be only 20 mins but its so different! We have never seen anything like this before and we are not sure if we can ever see something like this again. It's a very small place right next to monastery brewery and across from the monastery. It's worth trying!

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighborhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
