Almost every capital in Europe has its own wax museum and Prague is no exception. I got the opportunity of a lifetime, to see some of my most famous celebrities under one roof in my recent trip to Prague. Well, they were all in wax form, but it was still fun to see them up close and personal. I went to the Prague Wax Museum and I had a blast seeing all of the wax figures. Most of the wax figures were spot on. And of course don’t worry, you do not have to like movies or celebrities in order to admire this museum. Although it does help to compare the real thing to their wax double, just by seeing how they recreated these people and how spot on they got it was much amazing.
The first Wax Museum in Prague was opened in the 1997, in the presence of many representatives from politics and culture. The museum quickly became very popular as a place to "see" more than 50 characters from the worlds of politics, culture and sport. Sometimes it is difficult to tell if you are standing beside the actual person or is it really just a wax figure. So you have to visit the museum personally to meet, and get up close to some famous Czechs from the past like Art Nouveau painter Alfons Mucha, or modern day international figures like the Dalai Lama or even Elton John, Michael Jackson, just to name a few. The life-size wax figures are crafted by leading local and overseas sculptors. Each wax figure is amazingly life-like dressed in authentic and accurately recreated costumes.
