Mo to Su from 10:00 AM to 06:00 PM

For the first time, two historic parts of the Klementinum complex are open for tours. The baroque library hall is a gorgeous chamber with frescoed ceilings. Note the portrait of the English priest Edmund Campion, who taught at the Klementinum before returning to England where he was executed for his underground Catholic activities. Those who can climb the 172 steep stairs to the Astronomical Tower will be rewarded with a mind-boggling view of town, and on the way they'll be treated to the sight of two eighteenth-century telescopes and a device for measuring the precise moment of noon.
