If you love books or libraries this is a must. My knees shook and threatened to give way. One of the most inspirational, mind blowing, wonderful things I have ever seen. Could've spent the whole day wandering, if they would have allowed.

I’d seen pictures of the library and really wanted to see it in person. Yes it is very beautiful - However you get to view it with a group for 5 minutes from just inside the door. That’s it!

Overpriced and you only get to stand in the doorway of the library. I understand the reasoning but for the price, we should have been told what we would see. However you do get to go to the tower and see great views of the...More

Yes, the library is fascinating, but you can’t go in or take any photos after waiting 90 minutes and climbing a lot of stairs. The 2 Baroque libraries at Strahov Monastery are just as fascinating, cheaper and faster to get into, far less stairs and...More

The Klementinum offers concerts daily in summer. We attended a ‘Gala Concert’ in the Mirrored Chapel. The string quartet, singer and organist were excellent and a highlight of our stay in Prague.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the
