After a long time, museums and galleries are happy to welcome visitors again

As of yesterday (May 3rd), the Praguers are able to visit exhibitions, museums, and monuments. Thus, it will be possible to view the Old Town Hall, the Petrin Lookout Tower and the Old Jewish Cemetery. Also, the whole square of Prague Castle will be opened.

The government decided that from May 3rd, some cultural institutions may open in regions such as Hradec Kralove, Pardubice, Karlovy Vary, Pilsen, Liberec and Central Bohemian region, as well as in Prague. However, group tours will not be able to get together yet. Each visitor must have 15 square meters of interior space, and people must maintain a distance of at least two meters if they are not members of one family. Moreover, in other regions of the Czech Republic, people can still visit only open area cultural events, while no more than 20 percent of its capacity can be used at the same time.

The National Museum will only open the historic and new building. According to the organizers, the biggest attraction will be the Sun Kings exhibition, which has been expanded. It will run until June 6th. Entrance to the exhibition will be possible only with a pre-purchased online ticket for a specific day and time. Visitors can buy tickets for exhibitions on the website:

The famous Old Jewish Cemetery and Spanish Synagogue will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from Monday. Also, from May 7, some Prague towers will be reopened, such as the Bell Tower of St. Nicholas, the Lesser Town and Old Town Bridge Towers, the Powder Gate, and Novomlynska Water Tower.
