As soon as we arrived at the 'cavern', a man who seemed under the influence of something tried to usher us in for 70 crowns each - this was discounted due to his attraction to my friend(!), paying 50 crowns each instead. Even at this...More

Such a nice small cavern with paintings of Reon. If you like the magical life with unicorns, elfs, nice coulours then this is a place on your list. Best to go there from above on the Petrin hill and go down. Or if you like...More

Well worth a visit if you're in Prague. A wonderfully talented fantasy artist, who is sometimes there when you visit. The artwork is amazing and the decor beautiful.
