This gallery is part of the National Gallery of Prague and is housed in a fabulous Renaissance Palace which has been owned a various times by most of the Noble families of Prague. It is almost worth visiting the gallery just to see the palace....More

There are so few people visiting such wonderful art. Please take care though not to go too close to the artwork as we saw a rather over zealous gallery attendent grab someone aggressively.

Your experience in Prague will never be complete if
you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched
from the west to the north, provide spectacular views
of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone
streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green
gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses.
Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history.
