I visited only one of six museums. The one that is dedicated to the contemporary art and 20, 19 century. Very big pavilion. 5 floors with exhibitions. There is all about Czech art. Also there are few works of Roden, Picasso and Monet.

While the artwork and sculptures were magnificent, the building does not do the contents justice.. But worth a visit, just don't stay too long.

There are a few dozen good works, mainly in the French collection, but the gallery is a pretty sad building and if you've been to other world class galleries you won't be overly impressed. It's a shame really as it looks and feels neglected. Also...More

Went specifically for the Ai Wei Wei exhibit, which was fascinating and very hard hitting. We also saw the wonderful Klimt (The Maidens) & I'm sure we missed other excellent works as well. The cafe at the end was also good.

Wow! What a treasure. Was a little bit of a trek to get there from new town but well worth it and an easy tram ride on #6 from Wenceles Square. Great mix of Czech art with French masters contrasted by the modern, thought provoking...More

There are many notable works on display but In my opinion there are two good reasons to go in 2017: the Ai Weiwei exhibit on immigration (Law of the Journey) and Magdalena Jetelova's Touch of Time. Any description I attempt would not do them justice...More

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
