Prague is a golden, mysterious city with one hundred spires, and for all that it thanks among other to the alchemists, who belong to it inseparably. It is gold plated by their philosopher's stone produced perhaps in one of its hundred towers - in...more

To appreciate this excellent experience you must let go of fact. This is a journey into fantasy and hear say. Our guide spoke English beautifully and was able to discuss the historical stories behind the lives of Edward Kelley and William Shakespeare. Whether it be...More

Yes, that 's the only thing this museum left me with. I like to learn when I spend time in a museum. When there is a tour-guide I expect knowledge, I expect cohesion. What I don't expect is a lot of "maybes" and "who knows?",...More

The story of the alchemist was interesting, from reading the information. But this can be done for free on Google. The guide wasn't good, his English was bad, and he seemed rushed. Once he finished he sat on his phone texting. I would really avoid...More

It extremely overpriced for what it is. The history behind the location is wasted on an uninterested guide who barely shares any information and cheap plastic props that take the magic away from the place. Only a foolish eye would mistake any of the props...More

We went into this museum expecting more than what you basically see from the door! The room is basically just noticed to read about people who tried to make gold. We waited for the tour which was up Europe’s oldest spiral staircase. Inside the attic...More

Like the Ghost Museum, you have to take the guide to understand a lot of things and to appreciate the visit, but no one is really telling you to take it. But it is really fun for passing a few time.

We love to see some of the darker attractions when we visit cities. The tour is relatively short but well decorated and we got some really fun photos. Our tour guide was friendly and gave a good, brief introduction to some of the stories surrounding...More

This was by far the biggest waste of time. The guide was not fluent in English and not interesting. The magic is that they were able to take money from me and my family for nothing😩. Don’t waste your time and money on this “so...More

Prague is a beautiful city with many amazing cultural and entertainment attractions. This is NOT one of them. If this is on your list, cross it off now. Why? 1. Price. At 220Kc ($10 or 9 euro), it is one of the more expensive admissions....More

This little tourist trap is really nothing more, than a tourist trap. If you are visiting Prague for a week or two, and happen to cross the path of this museum, then I suggest you keep walking. Not much to see here. Everything in the...More

Mala Strana (Little Quarter)
Malá Strana is one of the oldest and the most
beautiful neighbourhoods in the city. Nestled
underneath Prague Castle it was once a part of the
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

If you’re only in Prague for a few days, there are many better places to visit than this, such as the Illusion Art Museum, etc., etc. You’ll be disappointed if you go.
