Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Is an incredible library of libraries, but, currently, and until early August, is closed to visitation. Is a complex of buildings in the historic centre of Prague, easy to find. In the same place is the chapel of mirrors where concerts. Such chapel, in fact, has a few mirrors, but is beautiful tb and the acoustics are great. It's worth listening to the concert. Is paid.

  • Great place to study with huge study hall just like in Harry Potter movies. The only thing is that you can't eat or even drink there but if you're hungry, there is a buffet outside with quite cheap prices. It also has a beautiful atrium to hangout and chill.
  • Small chapel but beautiful. It is said that once the renounced WA Mozart played its pipe organ here. The aacoustic is really good to hold a mini concert
  • The library was being repaired/restored so I didn't get to see it. That's life, you have to maintain them for the next generation so they lose a star for closing it and gain one for protecting the library for future generations. .
  • Not sure if I would go there again. My main objective during my visit was finding the old library you see in all those photos. This was not nearly as easy as you would expect. There is a complete lack of signs and getting around is just confusing. Now, I do recognize that this is supposed to be a library and not a monument, but this is just ridiculous. I believe that the old library I so much wanted to find was under construction in the end. However; I'm still not sure. The website didn't have anything and there were no signs. I did find two things. A whole lot of tiny drawers with weird cards and a study hall filled with about a hundred people, but no sound whatsoever. Would I go there again? Maybe...
  • Quiet place ideal for studying and reading. Enormous amount of books.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
