  • I found this Museum, which was located near our hotel, TripAdvisor media before our trip and it seemed to me interesting. When asked in Prague so they told me that I do not propose to tourists. However when I visited not regretted it at all. The building in which the Museum is also very nice.

  • Prague City Museum is housed in a beautiful building in neorenæssance, designed by the architect Antonín Balšánek, built 1896-1898. Muzeum města island opened here in 1900, but already in 1883 had the Museum opened its doors at a different address. The exhibitions in the Museum are really good with lyrics both in Czech and English, and here you are very clever at Prague about the area's history dating back to the Paleolithic era, as in Bohemia is counted from about 2.5 million years before the birth of Christ. The earliest objects on display, however, is from the iron and bronze ages. On the first floor of the Museum is seen Antonio Sacchettis model of Prague from 1817-1822, a whopping ' creation ', breathtaking to watch. Many of the streets in the center of town, Charles Bridge and the area up to the castles will recognize you easily. Muzeum města island is not an art museum, but anyway here is a part of fine paintings and especially sculptures in carved wood. On the first floor are arranged there also special exhibitions. In the Museum's basement displayed a computer-animated film in 3D, which hovers around the city streets, will be lifted up in the sky, coming down again, in and out of houses, through the streets, under bridges and up into the sky again. It was not a particularly exciting experience, but fortunately was not more than ten minutes long film. I spent about an hour in Muzeum města, the island was very well entertained and afterwards part wiser on Prague's history.

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.
