“National Gallery: Details”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

After reading several reviews on this and other attractions, I would like to ask my fellow reviewers for more precision in attributing their views to the correct objects as well as for correct spelling.

The National Gallery /Národní galerie has several locations for permanent collections as well as galleries for temporary exhibitions:

Permanent collections:

Convent of St. Agnes of Bohemia/ Klášter sv. Anežky České
Salm Palace/ Salmovský palác
Sternberg Palace/ Šternberský palác
Schwarzenberg Palace/ Schwarzenberský palác
Kinsky Palace/ Palác Kinských
Exhibition Palace/ Veletržní palác

Temporary exhibitions:

Waldstein Riding School/ Valdštejnská jízdárna
Stables of Kinsky Palace/ Konírna paláce Kinských
and two more locations outside Prague.

There is no "lowbowitz" palace, as one reviewer mentioned, I guess he meant the Lobkowicz palace. BTW telling us that "in the other museum there are better pictures" or so is not very helpful.

The various objects are dedicated to either different kinds of art or to different eras, therefore one should define which museum is being reviewed and what the review is about.

“Mucha's Slave Epic - not to be missed”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

If you travel to Prague in 2014, you should not miss Mucha's Slave Epic. An amazing work of years both in terms of size and beauty, depth and history, is worth the travel to the National Gallery by itself. Tram 17 drops you right in front of it. You can buy a ticket just for that exhibit, but for a little more you can do the rest of the museum where you will find a few works of famous painters (Picasso, Miro, etc.) as well as examples of communist and contemporary art.

“Realism was never gone.”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

If you despise figurative art, don't go. If you find huge paintings abject, don't enter the hall. But if you agree with me that we are beyond conceptual follies, GO! Mucha loved his people and their history and you can see what made him go here.
The videos at the rear end are about the struggle to get the paintings to Prague and a bit annoying... but the paintings are wonderful.

“Amazing collections”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

It's a little out of the city center, although just a 10 minutes walk from the bus station. But I enjoyed my visit there. Houses a lot of Czech and Slavic artworks and some important European Modern Artists like Klimt and Gaugin. I like the contemporary art exhibition. A little fra, but worth a visit.

“Amazing! ”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

This exhibition is a must see. You'll see whole another side of Mucha as an artitst and how familiar he was in slavic history. Still you recognice his style in these gigantic paintings. Buy a small leaflet about the paintings and you'll learn history too!
