Police were called to asses an unattended bag left in front of the newly-restored National Museum.
The bomb squad was present on the scene conducting a police operation. The black bag left on a footpath was later deemed to be a false alarm.
Images from the scene published by the Czech Police appeared to show a bomb disposal unit assessing a small black suitcase using a bomb disposal robot.
