Lots of amazing painting and sculpture from Manet, Picasso, Rodin, Gauguin, Munch. Not of lot of info prior to heading to museum so we didnt know that the Slav Epic paintings were on loan in Japan while we were there...a little disappointing.

The Slav epic was exceptional to the point of being almost indescribable. A dozen plus 25 foot plus canvases that were masterfully painted. Seeing one of these would have been worth a visit, seeing a dozen, is one of the greatest art experiences of my...More

This place is mad. Get the tram it's easy, it looks austere from outside, quite brutal and dystopian, but it's only the veneer. Inside it opens up into great open floors with natural light pouring in from every angle. One huge piece covered half the...More

This gallery is very well designed with a good mix of permanent and temporary exhibitions. The cafe is also well worth a visit after seeing the exhibits.

The permanent collection of the National Gallery is housed in six different buildings in different parts of the city, so worth researching and concentrating your visit on your preferred part of art history if you are short of time- only two of the smaller galleries...More

A great way to experience modern art. Found the Wei Wei exhibits moving and loved the variety elsewhere. The cafe was great too for getting a tasty break from the art!

Best to study up a little. Understanding the context and history of these truly epic paintings makes the experience much better. It is important to be solemn here, the Czech are serious about these. The docents will bark at disrespectful "ugly Americans".

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighbourhoods in town represents
the medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is

in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and

This is quite a peculiar question, but regarding the location of the National Gallery, the address is Staroměstské náměstí 12, 110 15 Staré Město. Hope that helps.
