I strongly recommend visiting the National Gallery: the building is very beautiful, the exhibitions are really interesting and well put together. It's a great place to spend a relaxing day in. You can also drink some coffee downstairs which makes the experience even nicer.

I came across this on my way to the Tivoli Gardens and had a lovely wander round the beautiful building. I was particularly struck by the local artist, Ivana Kobilca, who specialised in portraits. One of the staff was super helpful and really knowledgeable. There...More
