I read several reviews of this gallery describing it as a gem. They're right! It's wonderful. As one of the National Gallery group, it's best to buy a ticket for all the sites. The Sternberg Palace is a bit tricky to find, as it's at...More

This is a great museum, part of the Prague National Gallery (one ticket gets you admission to six galleries), directly next to Prague Castle. One bit of forewarning, I would not recommend bringing small children, no matter how well behaved or controlled. The guards in...More

Hidden and lacking much signage is this jewel of Prague. We got there around 10.30 and while the throngs were in a mile long line for the castle, we waltzed in and enjoyed this wonder by ourselves. The art ranges from BC to the 20th...More

Overlooked by most visitors, I always like to spend some time here because the collection is wonderful and there are no crowds. Even if you are not an art afficionado, you will enjoy some of the art pieces. The attached cafe is also overlooked, and...More

As many TA reviewers have said, this museum is difficult to find; not the building but the right entrance. The museum is part of a complex of three museums right in front of the Prague Castle’s ornate gates. If you want to buy a combo...More

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.

I have limited mobility and can only walk short distances with a cane. Is there any provision for mobility impaired visitors at the Sternberg Palace?
