The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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 modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
How to get there
  • Republic square • 5 min walk
  • bridge • 8 min walk

    ART!
    As of September 2023, there is a big, amazing, and wonderful Mucha art exhibit at the Municipal House that far exceeds the official measly little permanent Mucha museum. Its also cheaper for 290K/$13 vs 350K/$19. The exterior building architecture is gorgeous and stunning art nouveau at its best...inside isn't quite as impressive, and security staff doesn't want you wandering unless you're on a group tour. Next I would try to attend a concert or show here to go the full effect. There are a couple of fancy cafes here too in case you want some slightly overpriced drinks and food to be consumed in gorgeous and elegant setting.

    Excellent Experience
    The Obecni Dum was the highlight of my recent visit to Prague. The guided tour showed us all sorts of interesting and beautiful details inside this stunning theatre. English-language tours are conducted regularly, but seldom, and we simply were lucky that we were there at the right time to join one after enjoying some cake in the cafe beforehand. I highly recommend touring the theatre, followed by a visit to the iMucha exhibition.

    See a concert there
    Definitely see a concert at the Municpal House. We thoroughly enjoyed a one hour 8pm performance of selections from Mozart and Dvorak. We wore jeans and sneakers. We bought the tickets at the box office. The area around the Municipal House was quite busy even after the performance (I think it was a Tuesday night). We also had lunch at one of the restaurants, which I recommend (it was the one on the left when entering the building). Also, try to see the building in the twilight... it looks amazing with the dark blue sky.

    Amazing evening
    Incredible building , outstanding architecture , quite overwhelming . We went to listen to a Vivaldi and Mozart evening concert , absolutely amazing evening , such a beautiful combination of outstanding music and a beautiful surroundings. We had "VIP " seats with a great view of the stage , the acoustics are out of this world . Highly recommended and only a short walk from most hotels.

Having decided to walk from the old city center to the new Contemporary & Modern art museum (and a long walk it is!) I found myself in front of this gorgeous Art Nouveau building all decorated with stained glass. You can go in and look at the staircase, lamps and even the stained glass above the ticket selling booth.
I learned that it housed a concert hall and to my even greater pleasure a temporary Mucha exhibit starting on my last day in Prague and which I was just able to take in.
The exhibit was mainly of his early prints in France and his advertising posters, many of them (if not all (?)) were lent by Lendl the Czech tennisman who has amassed a great collection of Mucha's work.
There is also, housed in the same building, an Art Nouveau restaurant with the most exquisit lamps and other decorations. A great place for lunch, tea/coffee or dinner (the food is fairly priced and quite good) and bask in the luxury of a century ago.

The Smetana Hall is nice and it’s impressive the lights inside. Regarding halls I would say the Estates Theater in Prague is WONDERFUL (Don’t miss it) It was my favorite.

We went to a concert in Smetana Hall and was disappointing. The musicians didn’t seemed to have chemistry, it was a sad concert. Only 20% of tickets were sold so the theater was empty ( Tickets super expensive for what you receive).

Previous day I went to a concert in Rudolfinum Theater and even though it was in a small hall, the sound was amazing, the musicians explained the pieces they were playing, they had a “best seller program” so it is even better if you bring kids/teens because they will enjoy. The musicians were from the Prague philharmonic and was prepared and done with love.

In Prague there is a concert everywhere everyday. Make sure you read reviews before buying tickets as they really take advantage of tourists.

The Municipal House has a small but beautiful collection of Mucha’s designs and artworks on display above the concert hall. However, it should be noted that these are primarily lithographs, in case people are very concerned with only seeing originals. The moving displays of his works are quite breath-taking, particularly the display of the Slav Epic.

The municipal house is spectacular. Its façade, the ornamentation, the colors, its interior are the most impressive representations of Art Nouveau in Prague. The only way to visit is by taking the official guided tour. The tours are scheduled twice every day. There is one in the morning in Czech ; the one in the afternoon is in English. You have to pay at the entrance approximately 10 dollars. The tour lasts for one hour and takes you around the different rooms of the second floor and the Smetana auditorium. When they turn the lights of the Smetana auditorium is "wow" The guide speaks very good English and is very nice. The tour is not rushed. The explanations are very good. They do not allow regular tours to visit the place. The rooms are unique: the confiture room, the paintings (the horses, the eagle, the Czech personalities of that time), the aquarium, the oriental furniture, the fabrics, the knobs, the room designed by Mucha, the different auditoriums, etc. It is so unique, colorful and diverse! The elevators are very interesting. You can take pictures!

This is one of the most impressive sites in Prague. It is close to the Powder Tower. It is very easy to find and close to the most common visited sites in Prague.

Enjoyed the 60 minute concert , the best of classics.
You can have a coffee, snack and drink in the cafe at the entrance.
You check in your bag and coat before entering the hall.You get a metal token to be redeemed for your belongings .
Music played to a high standard.Spoilt somewhat by audience members taking photos and videos of the concert.
I wish these people would show some respect.

Terrible experience! We have been forced to get inside as the outside space is preserved for smokers only. The management and staff were not empathetic at all and do not care about the customer experience. The only thing that they care is the customer money. The manager that came out and spoke with us was laughing at us and did not offer any assistance and ran away once we wanted to make official complaint.

This Art Nouveau building completed in 1911 is located on Republic Square next to the Powder Gate. The exterior of the building is beautifully decorated. You can admire the stunning mosaic work over the entrance.

This Municipal House is a civic building that houses Smetana Hall that is an impressive concert venue in Prague. Besides the guided tours, you can visit the cafes and restaurants located in the building.
