We love this French artist. So we appreciated a lot his exhibition at the Kinsky Palace. Many masterpieces. Rather traditional, actually: a lot to read (English and Czech) and no interactive things. We also visited, at the same palace, the permanent exhibition of Asian ancient art. Very central.

Temporary exhibition of Henri Rousseau art and few pieces of other artists. I've enjoyed this nice exhibition as it is easy and digestible art display which does not take too much off your precious time.

This is one of several museums in the system. We stopped in because it was right at the Old Town. Some pieces are of interest, but the overall quality is not high. If you are into Asian art, this would be an acceptable museum while you are in the area, but if it is not your cup of tea, skip... More

My friend and I decided to stop into the Kinsky Palace because we received free entry through our Prague Card. The Asian art on display did not disappoint. We had problems with the employees though... First the lady at the front desk was an absolute jerk to my friend who was asking a simple question about our ticket, the lady... More

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...

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.

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.
