The Museum of Miniatures is a small museum (with about 30 tiny works of art) and is located near the Strahov monastery on the western side of the Vltava River. To get there from central Prague take tram 22 to Pohořelec station. The admission price is only 100 Crowns and the place is open from 9:00 AM -5:00 PM every... More

It's a small but a must see museum. All the pieces are unbelievable. I was shocked in a perfect way by the art that I could experience here.

Imagine the Eiffel Tower rendered in meticulous detail inside a cherry pit, or the Lord's Prayer written along the length of a human hair! This museum is very well done, if small. You can see it in 30 minutes, and it's not costly to do so (100 CZK, or about $4). We loved it.

Even though I had read reviews of this not-so-easy-to-find place, I still just thought it was going to be a museum of miniature art. I didn't realize it was going to be MICROSCOPIC art. My friend and I were absolutely gobsmacked at every microscope - calling each other over to see the next thing. When you arrive, you think you'll... More

A short walk from Prague Castle, this tiny museum is a little hard to find (it s just through an alley) but is well worth it. For about £1 you can spend some time looking through microscopes at some very small carvings that are beautiful to behold. This museum was definitely worth finding and we loved it. The miniatures are... More

Where else can you see a flea with a horseshoe on, holding a purse and scissors? Or the world's smallest microbook (it's legible!)? It doesn't take more than half an hour to check out these jaw-dropping pieces, all through magnifying glasses, but it's more than worth the visit. 100 koruna per person and a great walk through town to get...

The location is a little way from most of the other main attractions of Prague but you can walk there (or better still ride the funicular and walk from the top station). It is in fact located next to the monastery, and once you know that you can find it easily. The exhibits leave you quite simply stunned and I... More

We were the only visitors in this fantastic museum and we all enjoyed it very much. Amazing how the miniatures was made and well deserved that the miniatures are in Guiness Book of Records - stunning work and a must see in Prague 😃

Staying in Hradcany & Letna

Neighbourhood Profile
Hradcany & Letna
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. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.
