it is beautiful from start to finish. walking first to the baroque style library and se how old the stairs, books and styles was before where also you can smell the old books and floors. later on you can see the view of Prague from the observatory tower and the astronomical room and have a 360 degrees amazing view of the city of 100 spears.

The library is as beautiful as you would expect, it looks like it is a movie scene rather than a real library. But be warned you only get to look at the library from an open door and not enter it. As there are 24 other people also waiting for a glimpse you can't look for that long either. This seemed silly as there was another door so why both doors can't be used at the same time so that all of the group can stand and look was beyond me. Saying that, I think we should have been allowed to walk into the library slightly through one door and out of the other door to get a better appreciation for its beauty. Whilst I understand the books and library are being protected there are many other 'old' things in the world that allow you a more personal experience than this.

As for the tour, the 4pm views from the top of the astronomical tower were fantastic! But I don't feel I learnt much from the tour, like why was astronomy happening in Prague, does the site link with the astronomical clock in the square, what did this site give to the world of astronomy????

Make sure you go to the toilet as if you get there desperate to go just before your 50 minute tour apparently there are no toilets on site or the attractions next door - so heaven only knows how the staff are able to relieve themselves. So you have to run to the main square, use the ones there and then beg them to let you onto the tour when you arrive back a few minutes late having just spoken to them to get directions to a toilet!

Last week I held my first born son for the first time and if I am completely honest it was not even comparable to the experience of seeing the most beautiful library in the world. A trip to Prag without seeing the library is as stupid as paying for a cinema visit if you are blind.

We went here with a certain expectation. Alas they weren’t really fulfilled after the tour.

Firstly that old library is an absolutly must see. Although they only offer us a short peek through the main door. The interior was marvelous , authentic and breaths history, but it was way too short and too bad that we couldn’t get in.

The view from the astrological clock was great and very effective to get a 360 view of old prague.

It was guided tour only although most of the explanation was already on the paperboards so we didn’t hear anything new.

In general it felt that we didn’t the outmost of our money as the main attraction (old library) was very limited in time and space.

The guided tour , usually 30 mins apart is well organised . The tour involves a lot of climbing up many spiral staircases , some old , some new . The library is beautiful BUT you can only view it from a open door and you are NOT allowed to take any interior photographs . You CANNOT enter it . The views from the roof are breathtaking

Please do take into consideration that you can't actually enter the library. You can take photos from the view point. Baroque library is under government's control and the goverment determine general rules. Thank you for your visit and also for your rating which helps others to make opinion before their actual visit.
