Nice collection of baroque art by Czech artists who were close to the nobles/the church, as well as a display of old armors and weapons in the attic. Schwarzenberg is part of Prague's series of National Galleries, three of which are located in the same square (Hradcanske Namesti). Since the tickets are valid to visit all the galleries within two... More

We popped in here to kill time as it was a very cold day. We wandered around the galleries looking at the art, which was nice, but it wasn't until we got to the top floor that we found out the museum had a massive collection of weapons and firearms! it's amazing! there were firearms that even my husband, who...

Close to the Prague Casle, this palace is of the six ones composing the so called 'National Gallery" (one ticket for al six, valid for a week - apparently). It's usually much less crowded than the Castle and shows an interesting series of masterpieces. But it was so cold! The heating should be improved...

Had a good walk around in Schwarzenberg Palace this afternoon. The place is heaving with fine art, sculptures and on the top floor is full of old arms, cannons, guns, rifles and swords. The displays are spread across four floors which can be accessed by a lift or the stairs. It's best to buy the ticket that gives you access... More

There are so few people visiting such wonderful art. Please take care though not to go too close to the artwork as we saw a rather over zealous gallery attendent grab someone aggressively.

Schwarzberg Palace is right at the entrance to the castle and is an interesting building in its own right. Part of the National gallery complex, it's best to get a ticket for all the sites at the main entrance which is a modern glassed - in area adjacent to the main palace building. The building has been renovated and now... More

Part of the National Gallery and accessible on the same ticket that gives you admission to over six museums the city. The Schwarzenberg, as well as and Sternberg and Salm, are clustered around an open area. All three are outside the ornate gates at the far end of the palace complex. The National Gallery website says to use the Prazsky... More

The Castle district is one of Pragues major tourist destinations and the Schwarzenberg Palace is one of the most beautiful buildings in an area of outstanding architecture. The palace looks amazing and you can see the Italian influence of the architecture of this beautiful Renaissance building. The palace is massive and is well worth the tour here but expect crowds...

Prague has a problem of plenty. Each building is better than the one you just saw. Schwarzenberg Palace too is one such building. The palace is a part of the castle district and one among many attractions. It's a beautifully constructed place and does warrant some part of your time. Enjoy...

We've been there with two kids. And the armory was great. But security was almost aggressive. He followed after our 3yo boy, was very nervous about his playing on stairs (he did not touch anything! Anyway everything is behind 10mm glass) and finally came to us and started to talk with us in Czech and explain that we have to... More

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
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.
