1. Municipal House/Obecní dům
     

A good spot to begin the tour is the Municipal House, which the Czechs call Obecní dům, or “The People’s House”. This structure is an awesome example of Prague Art Nouveau architecture, so pay special attention to the details along the edges, the curling vines and decorative motifs around the grand entrance.

The building is used today mostly for concerts, restaurants and a museum, but the location itself has been the seat of governments going back all the way the Wenceslas IV, to a time before Prague Castle. For a list of current programs, click here.
