DOX Centre for Contemporary Art
At one time ranked among Europe’s centers of culture, Prague was without a proper contemporary art center for far too long. Then DOX came along. Opened in 2008 with the mission to encourage critical reflection and dialogue through the presentation of works that speak to social issues of the day, DOX is not just a 32,000 square foot space to check out thought provoking art, it’s a cultural center with accompanying activities and educational offerings. The building in which it is housed, a former factory, is a work of art in itself. Soon after the center’s opening it won a top architectural prize. Make sure to peek out the window as you wind your way through as there is art along the white facade. And even if you tried to, you can’t miss Gulliver, a wooden zephyr-like airship that appears to have landed on the roof (it is used for literature-focused events.). Back inside, DOX also boasts one of the city’s best design shops and a cafe.
