3.8/5 based on 30 reviews on the web
Perched above Prague's main river, Vltava Water Tower & Manes Gallery stands as one of the city's finest exhibits of contemporary art. Visit the iconic tower, which dates from the 1400s and long powered the town's fountains, and admire its sturdy construction topped by a classic onion-shaped dome. Then head to the gallery underneath and wander through its display of works from both Czech and international artists. This was a favorite venue of the late revolutionary, playwright, and president Vaclav Havel. You'll notice that the building's design allows for a great deal of natural light, keeping the interior illuminated and affording a sweeping view of the city and river.

  • It's nice tower but nothing else. Nice to see and take a photo or two. Next to the tower you have one excellent restaurant, a little bit high prices but very nice.
