Went there coincidentally, as it was raining outside when I was standing in front of the Charles Bridge and from available options to spend next half hour, or so this place seemed to be mostly appealing. The whole display is spread over 3 levels, showing...More

This was definitely a place I wanted to visit. I was really excited to see something that wasn't on plan while I was visiting Prague and something that would remind me of scary part of Madame Tussand museum. And I was very pleased with this...More

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods 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
