We spent an enjoyable rainy morning at the Sternberg Palace. The place was not crowded, which was an added delight. Just the room with the three oil paintings of Lucas Cranach the Elder can make you linger for half an hour. I especially enjoy "The...More

Part of the National Gallery of Prague. The gallery is housed in one of the most important Baroque building in the city. The gallery was almost empty when we visited late morning to get away from the crowds visiting Prague Castle. The collection covers works...More

I understand that security is a priority in these magnificent public buildings but I found that all the officials at ths other galleries were far less obtrusive. I'm in my 50's and carrying my bag on one arm eventually causes back ache. I usually have...More

I read several reviews of this gallery describing it as a gem. They're right! It's wonderful. As one of the National Gallery group, it's best to buy a ticket for all the sites. The Sternberg Palace is a bit tricky to find, as it's at...More

This is a great museum, part of the Prague National Gallery (one ticket gets you admission to six galleries), directly next to Prague Castle. One bit of forewarning, I would not recommend bringing small children, no matter how well behaved or controlled. The guards in...More

Hidden and lacking much signage is this jewel of Prague. We got there around 10.30 and while the throngs were in a mile long line for the castle, we waltzed in and enjoyed this wonder by ourselves. The art ranges from BC to the 20th...More

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.
