The exhibits in the torture museum were very interesting and varied but after only a few rooms you go through a door and you are back in the street.

A really interesting place to visit where you can learn about the past. Very interesting to walk around and very helpful staff.

Me and my fiancee went there because it sounded very interesting. We were not disappointed. There are many example torture instruments, and good explanation of how they were used. The descriptions were on point and informative, not a word too long. They are sometime involved...More

Popped in to kill time before our departure. It was ok but the lighting was so poor and we struggled to see a lot of the information relating to the displays.

This was quite interesting but you had to read a lot to know what most of the artefacts were. Many of the photos and information on the walls was replicated and repeated. It wasn't always clear what the images and items were, they weren't all...More

We popped in to kill some time before our flight home and all were seriously dissapointed. Promises of a torture museum was only a dark underground tunnel, where there wasn't any light to see any of the exhibits anyway. Save your money.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
