Mainly interesting to me for its Dutch still lifes. Somewhat bizarre guards, who can be quite intrusive and distracting. Charming young people painting copies.

This palace houses a world-class collection of Old Masters, yet it's strangely under-advertised. The name of the place in itself doesn't reveal that this is actually the Old Masters collection of the Czech National Gallery. I really enjoyed walking through the rooms and admiring the...More

We have visited Prague several times and we have never visited the Sternberg Palace so after we visited the Loreta made this our next destination. We were greeted by a sleepy booking office attendant that gave the impression that you had interrupted her busy schedule...More

Worth a visit to see some greats! Tucked away by the castle so makes for an easy combination. Cafe nearby

I have visited the National Gallery on Thursday morning: no visitor was there, it means I was completely alone. The guards were (annoyed) sleeping on the chairs, just pulling themselves together when I was coming in a room. Please do not go to this extraordinary...More

Visiting the Sternberg Palace gallery reminded me of how really unimportant, it seems, the works of the masters, and art in general is to the general public. While there were hoards upon hoards tramping about the relatively sterile corridors of the Prague Castle buildings, the...More

Wide range of European art to be enjoyed almost privately. To have a major Durer to yourself is quite something. Rubens, el Greco, van Dyke, Rembrandt and Goya among other artists represented. Attractive courtyard with sculptures. No problem taking non-flash photos. Only disappointment cafe closed

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
