I have a great picture of the outside of this museum/Palace. That is because it is closed and had been for quite a while. Not very informative to say it will open 'in autumn'. When?

It is amazing combination of architecture and sgraffito - something you probably expect to find in Italy rather than in Prague.

After having visited Cesky Krumlov days earlier it was nice to see again sgraffito work. This lovely place, with the others from Hradcany Square, make the castle district even more epic.

Thought the inside would be more palace-like but everything has been modernized for museum. With a few ceilings that have beef restored too much. Armor supply on top floor the best. Not certain worth about $10 US to visit.

The Schwarzenberg Palace is worth a visit simply to see the exterior alone. It is a great example of the sgraffito technique in architecture where layers are applied and then precisely removed to form a pattern or design. Take some time to look at the...More

Yes the building exterior is worthy of a visit alone. Sgraffittoed is what the finish is called. This particular buildings type is 'letter sgraffito' because of the rectangle to sealed envelope shape that makes up the pattern of that contributes to overall building finish. Now...More

This is found just in front of Prague Castle, it is well preserved and the front is an illusion created by rich black and white sgraffito patterns inscribed on a flat wall. An example of the Czech Renaissance. It was designed by Agostino Gallo in...More

On the Hradcanske Square this large Palace stands out because of the unique very decorative facade - Sgraffito. The large courtyard never seem crowded. The hordes of tourists descend on the Castle, most not giving it a second glance. The museum inside is definitely worth...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.
