Prague is a city of history and art, so it should come as no surprise that it is packed full of museums. Here are just a few…
A museum dedicated to Alphonse Mucha, a world-famous painter and decorative artist whose style is the very embodiment of Art Noveau.
The museum dedicated to Franz Kafka, Prague’s most famous denizen. It offers a glimpse into the life of a writer whose surreal tales were largely influenced by the city’s winding Old Town streets and Austro-Hungarian bureaucracy.
