I feel sorry for the many tourists who visit Petrin Tower but overlook the marvelous, free museum in the basement. It's devoted to the Czech polymath Jara Cimrman, the "Genius Who Never Became Famous," who's noted primarily as an inventor but was also a playwright,...More

The 'museum' is located in the basement of Petřín Tower and entry is free. The first time I visited I thought it was just a small museum, albeit a little strange. It was only the fact that my second visit was a guided tour that...More
