Ever wanted to see what Prague’s landmarks would look like in LEGO form?
During the Czech Repubrick exhibit at Hamley’s Prague, which opened earlier this year, you can see landmarks from around the Czech Republic painstakingly re-created in LEGO form.
The LEGO landmarks include familiar Prague locales like St. Vitus Cathedral (400,000 LEGO blocks and 1,800 hours of construction) and the Astronomical Clock (15,000 blocks and 170 construction hours).
They stand side-by-side with other famous landmarks from around the country like the Karlštejn Castle (300,000 blocks), St. Barbara’s Church in Kutná Hora (150,000 blocks), and the Ještěd Tower in Liberec (100,000 blocks).
The LEGO exhibit of Czech landmarks also includes at least one architectural design that never made it to fruition: Jan Kaplický’s controversial “blob”, which was slated to be a new building for the National Library in Prague but has yet to be built.
Admission to the Czech Repubrick LEGO exhibit at Hamley’s Prague runs 210 crowns for children up to 15 and 290 crowns for adults (discounted tickets are also available if purchased online).
In honor of Children’s Day this weekend, however (June 1-3, 2018), children will be admitted for free with the purchase of an adult ticket.
The LEGO constructions at the Hamley’s Prague exhibit include not only Czech landmarks, but a few other original creations. Among those is a large amusement park with what has been promoted as the largest working LEGO roller coaster ever built:
