Dox Gallery:

Just opened in 2008, an independent centre for contemporary art with a fine café upstairs.

National Theatre:

Beautiful exterior, breath-taking interior. Catch a ballet, opera, or drama!

State Opera:

An Opera and Ballet Company, once shut down by the Communists, this building now sings again with renewed energy.

Kino Světozor:

An Art House cinema right in the centre with frequent film festivals, often offering foreign films with English subtitles.


Neo-Renaissance building home to Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and Art Gallery.

Municipal House (Obecní Dům):

The Czech National Symphony Orchestra is in this Art Nouveau building, with regular exhibits and a fascinating interior by famous Czech artists.

John Lennon Wall:

A constantly changing graffiti wall. First painted with texts and pictures inspired by John Lennon in the 1980s by students, it quickly became a symbol of resistance against the now fallen communist government.
