Mainly interesting to me for its Dutch still lifes. Somewhat bizarre guards, who can be quite intrusive and distracting. Charming young people painting copies.

This palace houses a world-class collection of Old Masters, yet it's strangely under-advertised. The name of the place in itself doesn't reveal that this is actually the Old Masters collection of the Czech National Gallery. I really enjoyed walking through the rooms and admiring the...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.
