    On of the places that definitely worth visiting when you are in Prague - now for sure there are several hundreds of places , but still this is very very interesting - is the Strahov monastery.
    Built in the early 1100's - to be precise in 1134 - it is still standing after so many centuries - now for sure there were several wars over the centuries ( the hessites war, the 30 years war , when the Swedish soldier did not manage to capture Prague itself , but sacked the monastery ... etc.)
    The Basilica - the central church of the monastery - is impressive - pity that we had no time to visit it - only a few pictures from the entrance through the bars at the entrance to the nave. But still what can be see it is impressive from a distance - so I can just imagine how it is from the inside.
    We also did not have time to visit the library of the monastery - that is also told to be impressive.
    .. and yes they got their own brewery - but yet again no time to sit in and taste the brew that is made here... next time.
    Overall a very impressive place - with a lot of treasures to discover , I would say try to find a guided tour, that is at least 4-5 hours to discover majority of the interesting things that Strahov monastery can offer - it is worth it!
    When in Prague - go and check out Strahov Monastery - it is definitely worth your time.

    We stopped by to see the infinite book sculpture. The sculpture is located at the top of the steps from the entrance. When we arrived, the line started just inside the entrance and took about 10 minutes, maybe a little more. It is worth seeing if you are in the area. It is free.

    While the two library halls are indeed gorgeous, the price feels very high for a cursory visit.
    You are not allowed into the library, you can only look at them from a roped off entrance. What you can see is absolutely beautiful, historically significant and stunning, I just wish you could actually wander around and explore more.
    There are a few exhibits outside the libraries, but not much information regarding them. Still nice to look at, but for the price I expected more.

    This is a huge library but apart from that that's it. The entrance is very impressive with a huge "pile" of books built into a column.
    The actual building is OK. If you want to visit an impressive old library head to Klementinum for the guided tour.

    Dejvice ( Praha 6 ) is a wonderful district to check out if you're planning a trip to Prague ,it's one of the most liveable districts of Prague ,an upbeat area ,this neighbourhood has some of the best pubs,bars,cafés and restaurants to be found in the city ,due to the embassies and universities located in this district it has an international feel to it ,places of real interest to visit include The National Technical Library and Stromovka Park,all in all it's a great district to visit if you're planning on visiting this beautiful Bohemian city.

    I was so curious about this place, since i have heard about Vaclav Havel' s achievements, when i was a university undergraduate student.
    But it seems this place was not so open for public so I was in doubt to enter the building.

    But i was glad to know this is one of historical sites in Prague
