The Štefánik Observatory Reviews
I knew it's rather interresting but we got so much more for our money. First we were slightly disapointed that due to the rain they could not open the telescope ruth to see the stars from telescopes..... more »
This is well worth the small admission to get in. You can see many hands on activities. The staff are very knowledgeable and speak also in good English. We got to use both an old and newer version.... more »
Open to public. You can see the Sun using main telescope during the daytime, stars and the Moon during nighttime (7-9pm). There is moon landing exhibition, star stones showcasing (you can touch moon stone there) and much more. Ask local stuff for help. On first floor, there is a science exhibition dedicated to light, light sources, optics, etc. My recommendation would be to join it with watch tower visit and than you can continue to Prague Castle.
Great place to visit after dusk. Possibility to observe sky objects through the telescopes. Some educational exhibitions and interesting collection of meteorites. It is not very spacious but the staff is very friendly and professional.
