National Gallery in Prague, Prague

4.3
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.

  • Excellent collection of modern art very well laid out. Unfortunately I could not visit the room dedicated to kokoschka and klimt for whom I had chosen this gallery. When some of its rooms are closed managers should write it and especially to offer a discount or a bonus. In any case it is worthy and it takes time. Also good deco ' collection.

  • Good to spend a few hours, but a lot to see. Very overwhelming at times with not a lot of structure, but they have some beautiful work by Picasso, Monet, Cezanne etc that were very impressive. It was ...  more »

  • Cozy little exhibition gallery in the heart of Prague. It's very centrally located at the Old Town Square and hard to miss. Usually you'll find changing exhibitions in this location, like the one about Asian art, when I was in town. It was free for me as a student on a Sunday, but it's usually not that pricey in comparison to other museums in European cities. The gallery itself wasn't crowded at all when I was there and had a very calm and relaxing atmosphere overall. The exhibited pieces were presented in a very professional way with plenty of information to read. Worth a visit if you're interested in the current exhibition.
  • The museum entrance charge itself is a little pricey and has add-ons if you want to see certain exhibitions which will make your ticket even pricier. The museum itself and its collections are spread across different buildings so you may have to search to find the next part. The collection inside is ok but not as impressive as other art museums in other capital cities.
  • Asian Art exhibit fantastic. Learned so much history and provenance of common forms of enamel pieces. English translations well done. A wonderful way to edify yourself on Chinese and Japanese dynasties
  • Always nice to visit. Great exhibitions.
  • Beautiful exhibitions. A bit small but nice!
