National Gallery in Prague - Kinský Palace, Prague

(4.2/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
In the heart of Prague's Old Town Square, the recognizable pink-and-white stucco facade of National Gallery in Prague - Kinský Palace protrudes slightly out from the line of buildings that surround it. You may recognize it as the image on many regional postcards. Built in 1756 for Jan Arnost Goltz, a number of famous people have passed through its walls. Bertha von Suttner, the first winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, was born here, while Franz Kafka, widely considered one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, attended a grammar school held in the Rococo palace. After admiring the building's exquisite exterior, head inside where the National Gallery displays its collection.

  • This Palace is located on the old town square. Its façade is beautiful. It is impossible to miss but could almost go unnoticed so it blends into the background. Its collection of Asian art is very beautiful.
