You must take the trouble (tram or metro/tram) to visit this five floors of quality art including big western and central European names. The building looks initially like an office block or hotel but it is bright and expansive inside. Leave plenty of time to see the displays and take in a beverage at the arty feel café.

My visit to the National Gallery only encompasses a viewing of the Slav Epic, by Alfons Mucha at the Veletržní Palác. The scope, size, and detail of the works are unlike anything I've ever seen, with 20 gigantic canvasses tracing the history and mythology of the Slavic Peoples. My personal favorites were "After the Battle of Vitkov Hill," and "Apotheosis... More

The National Gallery has an eclectic collection of classical through modern art. Especially impressive are the Alphonse Mucha Slav Epic murals.

Lovely place, nice walk along the river to get to it. Cafe has a very boho vibe, however the place is very warm (read you would be sweating in buggie smugglers).

Went strictly to see Mucha's Slav Epic. NOTE: This gallery is the one NOT in the Old Town Square. (When we googled National Gallery, it was showing us two.) these paintings are incredible to see up close. I consider it an immense privilege that I was able to view these in person. Be sure to buy a little brochure from... More

The exhibit begins with a lot of Czech that is very interesting, some might say derivative of French or other European, but one wonders if it was the other way around. Very beautiful paintings. Also, downstairs, the saga by Basil Mucha, huge enormous complex works chronicaling the history.

Arrived by tram on a rainy day. Plenty to see and also found the admission ticket allowed us to visit other venues (ticket lasts 7 days), which was a bonus.

Art exhibition, very good quality by the way. There were some pieces by Mucha, a famous local artist with some charming designs. It's a bit off-the-beaten-path, reason why it's a cool place to visit.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighbourhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle in the background, is probably the most beautiful square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and squares, and stone towers blend together with the modern era. A vast array of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, international brand shops, galleries and hotels bring life to the old city. With its charming and picturesque cobblestone streets, the nightlife and parties will surely be unforgettable.
