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

I loved Prague and went on multiple tours, but the tour of Municipal House was my favorite. The architecture in this building is incredible. Be prepared to be amazed!! The work of Alphonse Mucha is beautiful. This was a great experience. Their gift shop is also one of the best in Prague, so do not miss it.

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 :)

Unlike the Austrians, they won’t serve water with your cake unless you ask. Staff could be a bit more polite, considering that this place is on the tourist map. Overall the place is ok but not worth a second visit.

Opulent inside, restored to its original glory outside. Art Nouveau at its best !
The original Mosaic, that is called " Homage to Prague " is on the front of the building, high on top. The Mosaic is set between two groups of allegorical statues symbolizing the Degradation and Resurrection of the People.

The Smetana concert hall is beautiful and an evening performance there is memorable.

I had my high school prom here, hard to believe, but true.
My husband and I had dinner over the years in the two restaurants here , and enjoyed the Cafe in the afternoon.

The grand stairway leading upstairs is roped off, the upstairs spaces open only to paying tours.
One day, I will take a tour, just to see the grand ballroom I used to dance the night away ...

Till next time ...

While the building is beautiful, PLEASE do not waste your money on any performance by the con artists that call themselves the Dvořák Symphony Orchestra. For $60, I wasted an hour of my life watching in complete disbelief the "musicians" playing Canon in D, literally something a 5-year-old can play, and NOT EVEN HAVE IT MEMORIZED. PLEASE, this is an insult to everyone who isn't tone deaf or has any idea what music is. Completely amateurs at music but masters of conning tourists.

From the floor tile to the roof , it’s so detailed and a creation
Large painting on the wall, the lift, stairs and the ceiling are done beautifully

This is another masterpiece in Prague and you must go here

Left side is the glamorous restaurant which is another beauty.
At least have a nice dessert and try to take a picture
They do not allow pictures in the restaurant
But I managed few. 😂😂

Had a superb meal, staff did seem efficient but not over friendly, the cleanliness is brilliant, the atmosphere is grand, we did tip the waitress about 150 corunas.
Next day went back for another meal and the service was fantastic, every body was polite and friendly, music from saxophonist & pianist.
Yes 4 English guys who wanted to see Prague without the seedy side, I think the Czech people may be a little wary of the Brits, be polite & they do warm to you.
The art nouveau decor is a true delight.

Every time our visit the concerts, the feeling that you are falling into a different reality...
So wonderful and with the soul preserved the old spirit of the cultural capital. The main hall of Smetana is always full. We bought tickets on the eve of the concert, but the hall was full. Acoustic is perfect!👍🏻
A favorite place in Prague.💝

Ticket sales is to the right just before you go up the stairs. Bought Best of Classics, splurged for green tickets near the front. Started promptly at 5:30.

The acoustics were awesome and sounds "huge". The players were great as well with lots of individual characteristics... not the typical "cold" disconnected musicians of bigger orchestras. They looked at each other, and worked together. The 1.5 hrs was great for little kids (free by the way)
The Hungarian Dance by Brahms was wonderful.

Purchased tickets for a Gershwin Concert based on the program presented at the ticket office at Concert Hall. However, the concert was actually a jazz concert with only one Gershwin song played, and not any of the songs listed on the program. When we contacted them for a refund, they denied it asking us why the other people in the concert didn't get up and leave, as we did. They contacted a member of the ensemble who denied our account, saying they had played the program. They refused to refund our money and finally offered us another concert the next night, which was not the type of music we had originally been interested in.

We felt completely taken advantage of as tourists and it marred our visit to the city. We were not able to recover our money and our hotel was of little help.

We strongly advise against purchasing any concert tickets at this venue.
