Since I am a fan of all the bright and airy spaces, it’s only logical that I’m thrilled about Veletržní palác and come here regularly to see the changing exhibitions of contemporary art and the permanent exhibition, which offers a wide collection of brilliant pieces from all over the world but also Czech artists.
The original functionalist building was destroyed by fire and reopened after reconstruction in 1995. Anyway, the Gallery is equipped with a comprehensive art collection that successfully performs a cross section of the history of the fine efforts of various Nations, it is good and well-organized on a range of a few floors. My favorite part is the Cubism and the works of Pablo Picasso, paintings from the Toyen or surrealistic works in part with modern art like Mucha’s women and of course pieces by my favorite sculptor Tony Craig.
Next to the entrance, is the cafe -Cafe Jedna, so I definitely recommend visiting for the snacks here, because here they have fairtrade coffee, and a variety of fine lemonades. The ticket will be valid for the whole day, so there’s no rush. I am always looking for the annual exhibition of the graduates from the Academy of fine arts, or even for the Grand Prix of Czech Architecture.
