National Gallery, Veletržní Palác
The history of Prague’s National Gallery dates back to the 18th-century. Set inside several distinctive buildings throughout the city, each is dedicated to particular periods and places spanning from Medieval Art in Bohemia and Central Europe to the Art of Asia. One of the highlights is the Czech and international art collection spanning from the 19th-century to today inside the functionalist Trade Fair Palace (Veletržní Palác). Along with a French collection, cubist paintings, Spanish art, and Russian avant-garde, the Czech collection includes the world’s most comprehensive collection of works by František Kupka, Czech cubism, which also included design and architecture, and work by various Czech art groups. The ground floor is open to the public. Head to the right where the bookstore is located. The building, dating back to the 1920s, features a tiered, ship-like atrium where you can see all the stories of the gallery. You could just stop there.
