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

For people that love Art Nouveau, there is an important event going on in Prague right now. This amazing building serves as a perfect backdrop for a large exhibition of the artist Alphonse Mucha’s distinctly stylized and decorative theatrical posters. Included is an animated tribute to his monumental canvases known as The Slav Epic, depicting the history of the Slavic people. One can also closely examine a replica of his stained - glass window from St. Vitus cathedral. Tickets for this exhibition can be purchased online. Event are starting to be planned for the concert hall. The restaurant on the right and the café on the left of the entrance are opened, but the restaurant inside the Municipal House remains closed. Face masks are mandatory inside.

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.

One of the must see buildings in Prague is the Obercni Dum ( Municipal House) that is beauitfully preserved and in use for concerts and other events. The building also has high end restaurants and cafe for any taste. A paid tour of the building is also worth it to see the main concert hall and the side rooms with the original furnishings and wall art. We didn't have time to attend any events in the main hall but it was busy for the five nights we were in Prague.

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.

I was taken here by a friend who visited Prague regularly- she was excited to show me the gorgeous interior, and to enjoy their cake trolley.
It was an unusually warm day so we sat outside and our order taken quickly. I then had my lovely cherry chocolate cake arrive, we then waited over 10 minutes before asking where the drinks and Caesar salad were as we had observed tables around us ordering and receiving far more complicated orders in half the time we had so far waited. The remainder of our order finally arrived about 15 minutes after my cake. Surely a fine dining experience is you enjoy eating together rather than sit and watch the other one eat with no food or drink of your own?
We were both quite shocked at the rather appalling service we received- it was like we were invisible as tables around us seemed to do okay for their food delivery.
It took a while for us to get someone to bring a bill too. Won’t be returning.

Great way to see Obecní dům (Municipal House) building, by attending a concert here. We reserved tickets a few weeks ahead, when seating showed it nearly sold out. Very enjoyable evening, and an opportunity to see some work of Alphonse Mucha, as well as other local artists. Very enjoyable evening.

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.

Next to the powder Tower, this is a building not to be missed because of it's beauty and also because of it's history. Lovely decoration specially on the outside balcony will draw your attention.
Unfortunately we did not manage to go inside but I am sure it has quite a nice interior as well.

Best experience in Prague.
Cheese tray was superb. Czech riser wines were very pleasant, same for the trout appetizer.

Easy going ambiance with amazing table service. Prices more than reasonable.

Should have visited inside but I don't have the chance.
1. Love the building style as it is pretty different from other buildings in Prague.
2. If you have the chance, go inside and listen to the concert. It would be great complementing the architecture style.
3. Enjoy :)
