National Gallery in Prague - Kinský Palace, Prague
(4.2/5 based on 65+ 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.

  • The Palace houses one of the branches of the people's Gallery. The permanent exhibition is a diverse collection of art of the countries of Asia and Africa. Many curious exhibits, very curious. The inspection took me just over an hour.

  • The Palace Kinski is situated in the old town square and features exhibits of the National Gallery. During my visit there was an exhibition of Asian art. Apart from that it is interesting the architecture of the building and noticed even a monument in memory of the first woman Nobel Laureate who was of the House.
