Extremely interesting. Free audio guide with ticket narrated by the family. Tells of Beethoven and mozart as well has having a very large collection of interesting pictures and guns. This family lost everything twice due to dictators and fought to regain it twice. I find that amazing.

A beautiful site to see! The church is full of beautiful details, small and big! Inside the church the windows are just mesmerising. All the other buildings are also very beautiful. It's a good idea to go later in the day when everything is a bit more quiet with the tourists and the buildings are lit up with spotlights!

You just need to sit outside overlooking the grounds and of course a great view of the city itself........ Whilst I have to say, eating high quality cafe food! Great selection of drinks too!

Lovely palace, nice to look around. Some furniture is obviously just rearranged to accommodate visitors so lacks the feel of what some rooms like the throne room would actually be like but otherwise thoroughly interesting and enjoyable

Self guided audio tour of the Lobkowicz Palace. Entry is quite expensive for a tour that can be completed quite quickly. That said the family history is interesting and the audio tour is well produced. There was almost no one there when I was walking around, which gave me plenty of time and space to look at the exhibits. The midday concert is very good.

Wonderful palace. The objects and art on display are great, but the story of how the family came back in control of their properties in Czechia after the fall of communism, and their struggles to restore and maintain them is fascinating. Very convenient to include in your visit to the main castle complex.

What an amazing restaurant!! The waiter is really kind and we felt very comfortable here. The menu is cheap (250kc = 10 €) and delicious☺☺☺☺☺☺

Lovely places to visit. Great views over the city. It does however get crowded so it's best to visit in the morning.

It was empty when we got there, but quickly filled up for late lunch. (1.40). Our waiter was formal but warmed up fast to our happy group of 7. He was very concerned about my dislike of cream in cooking; to an extent that he took the sour cream off my tomato soup, which was very tasty! We all enjoyed our various dishes. Half of our group loved the apple strudel; the other half loved the cheese cake. Beautiful berry 'sauce' with it. We all agreed that the espressos were perfect. One 'let down': the beer (pivo) was WAY TOO expensive. Only 3 stars because of that.

Beautiful place. A must visit when in Prague. We were lucky to be here on a very important day. We had an ex-guide Mr Slavek who is 88yrs old help us with information. Since today is a very important day all the services were free, including the guide. I surely leaving with happy memories.

Oops, this is for the cafe next door. The wonders of google! Service was very good and... the panoramic view of Prague is a bit historical as the trees have blocked a lot of the view but a really nice place

Marvelous to see the collection. Our tour included lunch and a concert. Audio Guides are virtually a necessity. In the government square area. I have seen the building and part of the galleries previously. The complete tour was unbelievable, I am glad I finally took the tour.

Awesome place, a must visit when in Prague. The pricing is more than reasonable. Depending on which parts you would like to visit. Also the tickets are valid for two days, so plenty of time to view everyting. One downside is that not every description is in English. But Google translate is there to help 😉

It was a lovely experience going through the museum. Lots of portraits - feel like National Portraits library. Audio guide is free too.

The audio guide made this one of the most unique an memorable museum experiences. Really excellent. The art is beautiful and very interesting examples of decorative arts. Interesting to see heirlooms next to paintings hundreds of years old with that very heirloom in it.

I was touched by the love for family that is so proudly put across through the audio that makes the history, the paintings, the china, the weapon display... and much much more, come to life. The soup in the restaurant was amazing. Lunch time consert was equally enjoyed. Definitely one of the highlights of our 7 day stay in Prague
