National Gallery in Prague, Prague

(4.2/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
National Gallery in Prague is a series of 20 monumental artwork--inspired by the mythology and history of the Slavs--by famous Art Nouveau painter Alfons Mucha. He worked on the pieces between 1911 and 1926, thanks to the support of wealthy Chicago businessperson and philanthropist Richard Crane. In his paintings, you can see the original homeland of Slavs, the battle of Grunwald, Holy Mount Athos, the coronation of the Serbian Tsar Stefan Dusan, the apotheosis of the Slavs, and other key episodes from the Slavic past. Mucha and Crane officially presented the series to the city of Prague as a gift to the nation on the 10th anniversary of its independence in 1928.

  • Following our visit to the Mucha Museum we decided that we must go see the Slav Epic at the National Gallery. And gosh- we were not disappointed. We were lucky enough to go on a National Holiday which...  more »
  • We did the ticket in clock square that includes a visit to 6 museums scattered around the city and lasts for 7 days. the Museum that we liked most is the one located in "Valetrzni Palac", reached quietly with the Tram number 6. the Museum houses a vast collection of works of very important European painters like picasso, manet, van gogh, klimt, Miro and many others. the Museum is not well known but is definitely worth a visit.

  • Waist of time. Galery was close even if web site said otherwise. This galery is in multiple builings throughout the city.
  • I can say this is the worst experience I've ever encountered in a museum/gallery in Europe. There is a mistake in the description of a Chinese painter's name Wu Changshi, which should be written as Wu Changshuo. I told two guarders separately the name is been mistaken and it should be corrected, and they didn't understand me and then walked away...
  • Not expensive but not great either. Went there for the wave of Kanagawa, only to find out they put it at the deposito to restore from damage, without informing... The other parts of the current exhibitions are okay, but not astonishing.
  • Great gallery with a couple of surprises. The only drawback would be the building it's housed in. If you like your buildings Communist inspired utilitarian, this is the place to go.
  • Excellent gallery, spacious and varied
