We didn’t know what to expect, and certainly what we got was different to any other museum we have ever visited. The whole experience was very entertaining and will live in our memories for many years to come.

More a collection of curators artifacts than a museum. Tour lasts approx 1 hour. Lost of exhibits and knowledge of curator if very good. Lots of acting from the guide.

The history and practices of the KGB are presented and explained by the very talented and passionate owner: weapons, spying tools are detailed along with historical facts. There are tours every hour.

Kings route taken by future kings on their way to
coronation - originating in the Old Town, crossing
Charles Bridge and leading to Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Cobblestone streets are lined with picturesque
medieval houses, remarkable palaces, churches, kitsch
