All reviews baroque art national gallery wonderful collection beautiful building entire museum prague castle worth a visit take pictures armour stonework illusion czech techniques century exposition square centuries
Thought the inside would be more palace-like but everything has been modernized for museum. With a few ceilings that have beef restored too much. Armor supply on top floor the best. Not certain worth about $10 US to visit.
The Schwarzenberg Palace is worth a visit simply to see the exterior alone. It is a great example of the sgraffito technique in architecture where layers are applied and then precisely removed to form a pattern or design. Take some time to look at the...More
Yes the building exterior is worthy of a visit alone. Sgraffittoed is what the finish is called. This particular buildings type is 'letter sgraffito' because of the rectangle to sealed envelope shape that makes up the pattern of that contributes to overall building finish. Now...More
This is found just in front of Prague Castle, it is well preserved and the front is an illusion created by rich black and white sgraffito patterns inscribed on a flat wall.
An example of the Czech Renaissance.

On the Hradcanske Square this large Palace stands out because of the unique very decorative facade - Sgraffito.
The large courtyard never seem crowded.
The hordes of tourists descend on the Castle, most not giving it a second glance.
The museum inside is definitely worth...More

Its a beautiful building, but then so is most of Praque, outside it...More
The Schwarzenberg Palace is located in a beautiful Renaissance style building, neat the Prague Castle. The building is impressing, especially the external decorations and some of the ceiling paintings. The museum inside focuses on Czech Baroque art, part of the National Gallery which is divided...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. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the
historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
