Czech Repubrick, AKA Brick Republic, now in central Prague

dropcap

When we first introduced this wonderful LEGO museum and resource it was in an out-of-the-way warehouse facility at the edge of Prague. A bit hard to get to but worthwhile nevertheless, this massive LEGO exhibit has moved to the middle of Prague. Today, Czech Repubrick -- formerly "Brick Republic" is now just around the corner from Wenceslas Square, sharing basement space with Hamley's, the world's larget toy store. With its hundreds of exhibits and 15 million bricks employed in more than 21,000 square feet of display space, this massive collection is now open to the public year round. The attractions are still aimed at both children and their LEGO-loving parents, and a nominal entrance fee is still required to view the unique exhibits covering many historical buildings, monuments, as well as fantasy themes, trains, planes and automobiles. There is something for all ages here and it's a lot easier to find and get to than before.
