Taking photos in museums in Prague

Strangely enough in most museums and churches in Prague there is a fee for taking photos. This practice is something most tourists are unfamiliar with, since in most countries and in some of the most well-known museums in the world this practice is completely unheard of.

Incredibly in most museums and in some churches in Prague there is a fee for taking any kind of photos. This includes all cameras, cell phones and extends to videos and video cameras (separate charge called – a video fee). These fees often confuse tourists, since such practice doesn’t exist in most countries and in some of the most well-known museums and art galleries around the world.
The charge for taking photos in Prague goes from 50 CZK to 100 CZK (100 CZK-for example in The Museum of Technology in Prague). For shooting videos the fee can be even higher. After you pay this fee you get a sticker you need to put in a visible place on your clothing in order not to get interrupted by numerous stuff members around the museum when taking photos. Otherwise, you will be constantly stopped by the museum stuff and in some cases even asked to erase the photos you have taken. Obviously this fee is taken seriously in Prague.
