    Many of the images here on Tripadvisor show the Memorial to the Victims of Communism on the Hunger Wall page. This is not the case - the Hunger Wall is a defensive wall built centuries ago in response to a famine (hence the Hunger Wall name). The king wanted a defensive wall built, and the people needed feeding. The king asked the people to build the wall, and in returen they were paid in kind with food. The wall itself - or the part that remains, is on the hill at Petrin. Take the funicular up the hill (or walk) and the wall is to the south of the station at the top, throught the rose gardens. Not a massively interesting attraction - it is just a wall. But take the time to learn about its history, and its worth visiting to see where and understand why - and why the statuers are NOT part of it!

    I would rate it five for original idea and wonderful details. However, it could be better maintened. The tickets (28 € for family) are almost of the same price as for the Prague ZOO (32 € for family) but stil reasonable. The main and more or less the only activity is to observe all these amazing details. I understand that the whole point of this museum is to leave it as it is, as kind of ‘caught in historical moment’ and not to turn it into multimedia museum but some improvements in style could be done.

    If you want to see the Brown Nosers this is the place to go! The ladders were a bit rickety for me but well worth the trip up! The rest is great if you like off the wall Czech art! It’s free but a donation is welcome. There was one room that was pitch dark with what I think were steps but we didn’t risk that!

    We visited here as entrance was part of a bundle deal with another attraction. Had it not been included we probably would not have bothered, although it was fun for 10-15 minutes when we were there. It's very small, but there was a lovely young lady inside who showed the children how to do mirror tricks, which was fun. The lady on the entrance turnstile was horrible!

    An ordinary mall. Beautiful, but without being out of the ordinary. The same multitude of clothing or footwear stores, watches, jewelry, mobile phones and so on. There is a Tesco supermarket opened until late in the night,until 00:00). I liked that in the food court there are many asian restaurants.

    I very recently enjoyed the experience of "flying" with iPilot, but my story is more than just the time in the simulator.

    I received a gift certificate for 60 minutes in the simulator as a birthday gift. However, the first time I went to redeem it the simulator was having technical problems and I was told to rebook.

    When it was explained that I was not from Prague and had spent more than two hours travelling to Prague specifically for the simulator, they were very appologetic and gave me a replacement voucher for 90 minutes in the simulator and threw in a video recording of my session in it. I can't fault them on customer care.

    I chose the A320 Airbus simulator, they also have a 737 simulator. With the extra 30 minutes my friendly and patient instructor, Lukas, gave me a good overview of the instruments and other controls and a practice run before we used the remaining 60 minutes to try flying from a few different airports.

    It was a very enlightening experience to learn how much of a modern airliner is automatically controlled and how much is still manually flown. I was shown how to use the throttles and flaps on both take off and landing as well as how to input settings for some of the aircraft's more automatic features.

    While the simulator is not a moving one, it does faithfully replicate the flight deck arrangement of the A320 (Lots of pictures of that can be found online if you'd like to confirm) and gives you a good idea of cockpit procedures.

    IPilot also has an extensive catalog of airports to choose from. In the 90 minutes I had, we did take offs, fly arounds and landings at San Francisco, Prague, Brno and Madeira as well as a landing at St. Maarten.

    In the course of my flying, I was given opportunities to fly by both instruments and visual cues.

    About the only thing I can think of to fault them on, and it's a small thing, is that they have no Airbus related items in their selection of souvenirs. They have lots of Boeing stuff and some of their own iPilot merchandise, but no Airbus stuff for those who chose the A320 simulator.

    This is a quickest way to get to Andel Center in Smichov for Shopping.

    The train was on schedule and runs frequently.

    All in all it took me 15 minutes to get to the Shopping centre

    I have to agree with other reviews that I read about this museum, but we were determined to see it. The attendant told us that many items (not available) due to some Court Cases suing for possession but her English was limited, so not sure we actually understood. Even with what they did have though, I think a little Mozart music could have improved our experience there. Not as much English translation as I would have liked either. I could certainly visualize Mozart there visiting the Dusek family in very peaceful surroundings and doing his work. It is tricky to find though, but for us that made it even more memorable. We were warned not to go up the steep path through the woods, but as we insisted we could manage, the lady told us to watch for the 5 steps on the right which would then lead us through athletic (soccer) fields, to a long, winding path down through the woods. Lucky for us a very, very nice woman walking her dog, walked us all the way down to the entrance. We enjoyed our lunch (which we brought with us) sitting, listening to the birds, and being thankful for Mozart. We were the only ones there! Seems to have such potential!

    Constructed between 1881-1885 Kostel Svateho Vaclava Na Smichove is one of the most recognisable landmark features in the eclectic Smichov District ( Praha 5 ).
    This is a wonderful looking church ,the facade looks superb,a double clock spire ,very ornate stone and brick work ,it's a striking church to view,of a night it looks amazing when illuminated ,if you're walking down Namesti 14 Rijna in the Smichov District it's a church building well worth checking out.

    The Ethnographic Museum, also known as Musaion will probably not be on your list of top sites if you are visiting Prague. If you enjoy seeing culture and learning something about Czech culture then maybe you should add it. This museum centers around Czech culture and folklore. You will get to see old fashioned costumes and outfits that were and still are used in various types of ceremonies. You will see handmade items like pottery, dishware, clothing, furniture, and decorations from a time period that isn't so long ago. Right now they have an exhibit regarding "Tramping", which was something similar to Scouting. I have to say that I am not such a big fan of such museums, but I enjoyed this museum very much, and I am happy I went. The museum is not extremely big, but it will take you about two hours to see everything. Maybe longer if you read and listen to everything.

    The staff here were very nice and accommodating. You can see that they enjoy people coming to see their exhibits. There is also a cafe to the side where you can get some coffee, or even a beer. This museum is located at the Svandlovo tram stop, near Kinsky Square. There is no parking so take a tram. Also, you will walk into the garden a bit before you get to the museum. You can actually get here directly from Petrin Park, if you wish.

    It was great again to see the world opening up again now that the dreadful pandemic has been tamed ,first trip back to Prague and things couldn't be more normal,as we were staying in the Smichov District it was great to see places such as Svandovo Theatre On Smichov not just open but booming again ,this beautiful theatre accommodates 300 plus patrons ,it's looks amazing ,such a colourful photogenic theatre building that is most definitely well worth checking out if you're walking down Stefanikova .

    Located in the Smichov District ( Praha 5 ) is this great statue in honour of Ukrainian poet ,writer and public figure Taras Shevchenko.
    The work of sculptor Valentyn Znoba ,it's a finely detailed statue,very photogenic,makes for some great photographic opportunities ,if you jump tram 1.2.9.12.15 or 20 to stop Svandovo Divadlo you're a one minute walk from the little park this statue is found which is well worth seeking out.

    We were there on the (too) hot summer day. There is Ethnographic Museum of the National Museum there. Nice staff, a small exposition. You are there away from tourists for a while. Unfortunately, it was so warm in the exposition halls, almost impossible to stay there for a moment. The surrounding - the Kinsky park is also worth to visit for a vieuw of the part of Prague, you can climb up to the Carpathian Ruthenian Church of the Saint Michael Archangel as well.

    Passing Saint Wenceslas Church down Stefanikova I viewed Portheimka ,a nice museum housed in a fantastic looking building.
    This building looks superb ,a wonderful piece of architecture that's one of the standout buildings in the Smichov District of Prague ( Praha 5 ) ,although I never dropped into the museum I did stop and admire this beautiful building,I took a few photos before moving onto Cafe Bar Positivo for a tasty early morning coffee,it's a building easy to locate along Stefanikova and is most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area.
