No. of pictures: 37 pictures
The Prague National Museum of Technics, open for public recently, undergone very hard and detailed reconstruction works during past years, which unvolved, except all buildings´ reconstruction, the renovation of practically all expositions, first of all gigantic (immense) hall, dedicated for transport and aviation objects.
Except of this, you can find there smaller halls, presented to themes, such as: architecture, engineering and design, astronomy, art of print and atelier art of photography.
From the first opening day, the Museum became very popular and was in the centre of interest of all visitors, first of all from line of fathers and sons, who admire (similarly as previous generations) a beauty and technical refinement of machines from all over the world, especially of Czech (or Czechoslovak) origin.
So, on weekends, endless queues were formed in front of Museum building, and casual visitors could be sick (during those winter months) from long waiting outside the building. From this reason, we prepared for you small sample of photos, showing you, what exactly would be possible to see in Prague Museum of Technics.
What is the ideal time period for visit? It is: on working days till 6 p.m. and except holidays. Anyway, the collection set (exposition) is still completed and its range is more than rich. Nevertheless, my impression is that, in past, the collection was more extensive, especially in model section of aviation, transport and shipping (to tell the truth, this might be caused by my vigorous child phantasy!), although this museum was a target of my excursions probably each second weekend of my early childhood (this visit was frequently changed with admiration of „Whale“, placed in National Museum Building).
Author´s note: as a target of this photo-gallery, it is no substitution of personal visit of National Museum of Technics but this gives a brief outline the atmosphere stressing some remarkable details (which are worth to see) from chosen exposition section. So, this is not complete documentation in a form of catalogue, and it was not an intention, at all.

Liben is a traditional Prague district. It is located for the most part in the city district of Prague 8, a smaller part in the eastern cadastre of Prague 9. Formerly industrial Libeň is located to a small extent in Prague 7. Libeň was annexed to Prague as the last suburb, in 1901 before the establishment of Czechoslovakia .
Who would have thought that before the great flood in 2002 and a few years later would become one of Prague's most luxurious neighborhoods? Today, there is are great cafes, bistors and restaurants one next to another. The houses have been beautifully repaired and the streets are always full of life. You will easily think that you walk along some beautiful boulevard in France.
The pandemic situation is the same this week and the lockdown still lasts. The people of Prague can come here now, the people outside Prague will have to endure for a while longer. You can spend the whole day in one of the most popular parks in Prague and you will definitely not be bored here. In addition to romantic places and large grassy areas, there are also several playgrounds, an in-line track and a dog playground.
The most expensive street in the Czech Republic, with no doubts. You can guess it from reading signs on this avenue connecting Letna and lively Old Town Square.
This time we go to the capital of the Czech Republic to make a beautiful walk to see the most popular tourist attractions which would give us another perspectives on the life on the city on the Vltava River.
Few weeks ago we have visited the capital of the Czech Republic, Prague. During our walks in streets of hundred towers, visits to various museums and landmarks or tasting good wine we decided to visit a water world. It’s a relative new sight in the beautiful metropolis.
Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic and its largest city. I was born there and I have been living there ever since. Prague covers the area of 496 square kilometers and there live more than 1,2 million people. Prague is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Transport Museum in Bratislava belongs to relatively young historical institutions, because it was established even in 2000. So, the persons who are interested in technical monuments, receive intuitive survey, as far as the development of transport is concerned, i.e. from invention of the wheel via first self-mobile devices ap to present time.
