- One of the strangest buildings in Prague, this pavilion was built in the shape of a six-pointed star set in a large park well out to the west of town. There are small permanent displays on the 16th-century structure itself and on the Battle of Bila Hora, which took place nearby in November 1620, at the outset of the Thirty Years' War. The upstairs hall is used for temporary exhibitions touching on Czech literature. The ground floor features amazingly sculpted stucco ceilings dating from the 1550s.
