3.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
Combine a classical concert with a guided tour in English of Clementinum, the largest area of historical buildings in the old town. Many of Europe's great astronomers, scientists, musicians, artists, and philosophers have studied and worked here since medieval times. Climb the 68 m (223 ft) high astronomy tower for views of the city center. As you walk around, you'll find two Baroque churches, a Baroque library with ceiling frescos and rare globes, and a mirror chapel. The chapel hosts classical concerts played on its two 18th-century organs. Make Clementinum a centerpiece of your Prague vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Prague travel itinerary planner.

  • There is not a lot of things during the visit. The building does not mine but the library it contains is amazing! It's really to see! Then there is a sacred stairwell with a view to 360• for reward!

  • We took a guided tour in the building of the Klementinum and the guide explained us very interessting things about the history of the building and the historic people related with the library, but not...  read more »
  • A lot of thanks for our guide Daria who made us a wonderful tour inside the Klementinum. Worth your visit! espacially if you are an astronomy fan. 
  • The library is one of a kind. Google for pictures instead of reading comments here and you will certainly decide to visit the linrary. Its a shame that they dont let photos to be taken. Only permitted to visit by a scheduled guide. They also tell you about the history and show the astronomical tower. The tower has a great view of the city. If you are interested in astronomy, you will like the guide.
  • Clenentinum is an amazing place! It's full of history and deals with some of the greatest genius of Czech Republic. The rooms are incredible and perfect. The only bad thing is that you can't go inside but only see from the door. I suggest going on top of the tower because it's a lovely experience. You can see all the city!
  • Superb atmosphere and quiet. You can enjoy one of many excellent chamber orchestra concerts here of usually high standard. Nice cafe next door to. To destress from city haste well recommended...
  • Overpriced, the whole tour is max. 30 min long. On the pictures it is promoted by it's beautiful library, which is indeed beautiful, but visitors can't enter there. Only a quick check from the library's entrance. In addition no photos are allowed there. To sum up I was very disappointed and I don't recommend it.
  • Such a ripoff!!! 220ck (about 9 euros) for 30 minutes, from which 15 of climbing stairs. The only remotely interesting thing is the library, in which you can't enter, you have to stay at the door and stare in dim lighting. And that for less than 2 minutes, cause the guide was in a hurry... Save your money and give this one a pass. For 250ck you can visit the prague castle, which is so much more rewarding and interesting.
