  • This small Observatory is an experience for young & old. You can see the Sun with a telescope that is over 100 years old, weighing six tons and still fully functional. Unfortunately, we had no luck with the weather, for this we were able to examine Prague through the telescope. The staff seems to be a kind of Club, were very friendly and have explained everything to us. Top!

  • A perfect place to get in touch with astronomy and physics. A great exhibition and a few hands-on experiments. The friendly guides are happy to answer all questions which may arise.
  • Opens at 1400-2100 on weekday and 1000-2100 on weekend. I did not manage to get in but it looked interesting from outside. Came here early in morning during my run. Marking down as things to do in future.
  • Very nice place to visit, it is really worth to visit with family. they let you to watch the Sun or the moon also thy will explain some ontrestibg scientific staff
  • A nice observatory in a serene park. Don't know if it's open to the public - it was closed when I was there.
  • Popular place to learn something about space. Check out the tours, sometimes there are open days.
