4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

another great building worthy of a visit.Some of the buildings can only be viewed from the outside of course as not all are open on certain days, nevertheless still worth going if only for the architectural construction of some of the sights.

“The hidden bar . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Try a trip down the spiral stairs and find the American Bar. Created in 1912 this is a wonderfully decorated Art Nouveau circular bar.

Check out the centre piece coffee urn - stunning conversation piece.

This is a great place to relax and catch your breath whilst enjoying the sights of this fabulous city but also being constantly reminded of a splendid era in art and architecture. If you search you will even find a Mucha or 2.

Comfy leather seating, table service, small intimate and splendidly decorated sum up the American bar. Don't forget to look up and examine the Chandelier, supplied by Frantisek Krizik.

Not the cheapest place to drink but this is a little more than a drinking experience - great cocktails and great service in a great example of Art Nouveau!

“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

This building is spectacular during day time and at night. They have special event in this hall all the times. Mostly concert. I didn't go to see the concert inside but the exterior of this building is very spectacular that can make you stunned. You can arrive the place via tram or subway. The station is Namesti Republiky. Next to the building is luxury restaurant and not too far (on the opposite side) is the big famous mall named Palladium. You can find foods and do some shopping in this big mall.

“Join the guided tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

The tour of the municipal house was very interesting. Not only did we learn about the building, but we learned about the history of Prague. Informative and relatively inexpensive. If you have the time, take the tour!

“Unbelievably beautiful piece of Art Nouveau”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

I was fortunate in having a guided tour through the building. Nearly every room offered more incredible murals and architecture.
