Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

Despite of its uniqueness and the interesting exhibits that are displayed in this museum, it is out of place with regards to Czech history and city of Prague and Strachov monastery in particular. I wish to see the items that at least have some connection to Czech republic and not only to the history of Russia. In this these turbulent times the exhibition may find many more enthusiastic patrons within the Russia proper.

Yes, the whole time you spend here may be only 20 mins but its so different! We have never seen anything like this before and we are not sure if we can ever see something like this again. It's a very small place right next to monastery brewery and across from the monastery. It's worth trying!

We loved this little gem a lot! Sailing boat on the wing of a mosquito, swan lake on a poppy-seed, Pushkin portrait on a rice seed, train on a hair, camel caravan in the needle eye..... Looking through the magnifying lense we kept repeating: "oh my god!" Just as the lady arrived a few minutes after us :)
Entrance fee is 100 kc pp. It is 5 minutes walk to Loreta, 10 to Hradčanské námesti. Do not miss it!

I saw the museum as I was wandering in the strahov monastery! It consists of only two rooms but it is really interesting and out of the usual! The exhibits can be seen through magnifying glasses and microscopes. The entry fee is just 100czk or 50czk for students so it's not so expensive.

A camel can't pass through the eye of a needle, right? Actually, at this museum tucked away in a monastery in the Mala Strana area of Prague, a whole caravan of camels sits in a needle's eye. Don't ask me why I derived enormous pleasure from this exhibition, but I did.

This is in a small building with 2 rooms showing off the exhibits. Of which you view through a magnifying glass or a microscope. It cost 70 kr to get in and we were finished in less than 30 minutes. Yes they are fantastic to look at. However what would have made it worth while was some explanation of how they made the exhibits, for example the tools they used, how long they took to make, what nationality the makers were etc. There is no writing apart from a little bit of card next to each item with a few words telling you what it is. This appears in a few different languages.

You do get a good view of the whole city from around the corner to the museum, so good photo opportunity.

Lovely museum to visit wit the kids but hard to find. We took tram 22 at I.P. Pavlova to the strahovski klaster and then followed the arrows to the petrin-tower. When you going up a small stair, it's the first house on the right. It's amazing how this is done.

Were aiming to look round the monastery but it wasn't open to the public so popped in to this small (of course) museum of miniatures.Fascinating to focus on whole ships, trains,written scripts, scenic views and parades of varied animals painted (don't know HOW), on grains of rice, mosquito wings, fleas leg etc. worth the patience to focus carefully and take the time to ponder, wonder and appreciate these perfect miniature art works.
