Clementinum, Prague

3.9
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.

    Clementinum is known mainly due to long-time recording meterologických data in the Tower, named after the already mentioned scope. Guided tours can also be accessed an impressive library and a chapel. You can also see a collection of astronomical instruments.

    The Kelmentium Complex is closed due to reconstruction. You cannot see the library but still have access to the mirror chapel by seeing a classical concert.  more »

    The performers are top quality and the program selected to be broadly appealing and of congenial duration. An hour of classical music before dinner is just right for a tourist, yet many knowledgeable ...  more »

    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.
