National Gallery in Prague, Prague
(4.3/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • The Museum of contemporary art in Prague presents international collections as well as Czech artists. In addition some works of Klimt, don't miss out on the works of Kupka, surprising and little-known Czech painter in France. Also check out the projects of local contemporary artists. A beautiful introduction to the Czech art, you can conclude with a tour at the Museum restaurant, delicious coffee!

  • Wonderful art and calm, in comparrisson to the centre of Prague. Such an interesting building too of Brutalist style. 
  • I race in the National Gallery with my class on a school trip and it was a really good experience! Modern and innovative design and the amount of works housed is considerable: it starts from the 1700 and continue up to the present day. Don't miss the lounge downstairs with huge paintings.

  • 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
