Bright sparkly palace in Old town square.

I didn't go into the place, but passed it by many a time while I was in Prague, looks particularly spectacular at night, great place for a photo, really an eye catcher.

As synchronicity would have it I was led to the exhibit of the recovered Leda and the Swan...and the asian portion was secondary. I'm new to europe but old to asia and noticed the statues native to the area if missing parts will be missing limbs (thinking w/o making or doing) whereas in asia I've more often seen (or it's...

Kinsky Palace or Palác Kinských is perhaps the most beautiful Rococo building of this city. It was completed in 1765. It was originally named The Goltz after it's owner Count Goltz. In 1768 the palace became the home of Štěpán Kinský who was an Imperial diplomat. It has a Rococo facade and a Baroque building. This building gained historical significance... More

A Baroque Palace that now houses the Asian Art collection of the Czech National Gallery. We especially appreciated a current show that juxtaposes the ancient with contemporary art. The curators by displaying works of Czech fine and applied artists succeeded in demonstrating the continuity of art and highlighted the achievements of the previous generations.

This is in old town and houses a museum. They have different exhibitions so you can check to see what is showing ahead of your visit. The outside is a grand edifice that changes is look from day to night.

I don`t know much about the inside (the palace now belongs to the National Gallery), but its facade is absolutely spectacular! The Kinsky Palace is definitely the most beautiful Rococo building in Prague!

Mixed in some contemporary work, which more than punctuated mostly Chinese objects. A very large mansion, they also displayed a wide ranging collection of Egyptian, Greek, and Roman objects. Not crowded, a lovely space to spend an hour and a half.

Prague was on of the cities in Europe without a gallery of classic sculpture. Fortunately, the Narodni Galerie opened an exhibition with pieces from Egypt, Greece, Middle East and Rome. Although the pieces are not first class, you have to thank that the info is in Czech and in English. There is also an exhibition called "The Art of Asia",... More

The exhibition titled "The Art of Asia" was interesting. "The Art of the Ancient World" was average.

When we arrived there was nobody manning the ticket booth so we went upstairs to the first floor and had to pay in the gift shop. The Alfons Mucha exhibition was great, with a wide variety of different works including, print, photo and sculpture. Salvador Dali was also being exhibited but we didn't opt for going to see his.

Staying in Stare Mesto (Old Town)

Neighborhood Profile
Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods 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.
