This Art Nouveau gem in the very heart of Prague dominates the city from which the Czech kings - Václav IV was the first one - ruled the Czech Lands. It was King Vladislaus II who decided to leave the center of Prague because of its busy trade road to Kutná Hora, a centre of medieval silver mining. The Powder Tower, a wonderful memorial of these times, still stands firmly attached to The Municipal House.
Experience the genius loci of the sumptuous halls. Allow yourself to be surrounded by the masterpieces of the greatest Czech sculptors and painters from the beginning of the last century: Jan Preisler, Mikoláš Aleš, Max Švabinský, František Ženíšek, Ladislav Šaloun, Josef Mařatka, Josef Václav Myslbek, and many others.
The Municipal House rightfully belongs among the Czech Republic’s national cultural monuments. It is a jewel whose significance far exceeds the borders of the Czech Republic. Experience the unforgettable atmosphere of our concerts. Let your children discover the path taken by Czech history – they will surely never forget where the Royal Court used to be. It was from one of the Municipal House balconies that our "Founding Fathers" declared the independence of Czechoslovakia on October 28, 1918. And at the end of 1989, the first meeting of the Communist government with representatives of the Civic Forum, led by Václav Havel, was held here too.
LISTEN TO PEARLS OF CLASSICAL MUSIC in Lobkowicz Palace‘s beautifully decorated concert hall with impressive 17th-century painted stucco ceilings. Professional musicians, including members of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, play for your pleasure during the Prague Castle visit.
The church located in the heart of Old Town in Prague offers a unique organ with 50 registers, 3 manuals and 3500 pipes from 1733.
