Tips from the community

Although this is one of the city’s relatively new structures (having been built in 1912), Municipal House is considered to be one of the finest examples of Art Nouveau in the country. It’s also home to Smetana Hall, one of the city’s largest concert halls.

  • Prague’s best historical highlights

    travelfreak (Jeremy Foster)
    Unlike many other European cities, Prague escaped World War I and World War II relatively unscathed and undamaged from falling bombs and other destruction. The result is a nearly perfectly-preserved historic Old Town, and plenty of other still-standing neighborhoods around it. Castles, cathedrals, Gothic bridges, and even giant clocks are all part of the city’s far-reaching history, and so you’ll learn a thing or two while visiting these important landmarks. This list includes everything from ancient historical sites to medieval structures and slightly more modern pieces of noteworthy architecture, like sleek new buildings and even a graffiti wall where locals once aired their grievances.
