#4 of 189 in Museums in Czech Republic
Art Museum Castle
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.

  • Go thought the special exhibition of the National Museum of art, and "eh, the end of it?" And disappointment is the venue scale, such as. Gerhard Richter exhibition in cooperation with the Government of Germany had hoped for but few exhibits. Take a closer look at what is retrospective in too high expectations. I think it unlikely at the Museum level for this class of Japan, for example, it will be exhibited in a new national small venue near. Because the commentary was firmly in English without problems. Line tickets is only one point of contact.

Where to stay in Prague

As one of Europe’s main tourist destinations, Prague offers a selection of accommodations to match its popularity, from luxury hotels to very affordable hostels. For an authentic Prague experience, stay at one of the guesthouses or boutique hotels housed inside the city's historical buildings. You'll find many lodgings concentrated around the most popular sightseeing areas, such as the Old Town, the Lesser Town, and Prague Castle, but there are also a good number of them in other neighborhoods. The best way to make Prague feel like home is to rent a fully furnished apartment.
