Always, when I am in Prague and in the mood to see some nice art, but in a smaller dose, I choose to go to the gallery established in honor of the great Czech photographer Josef Sudek, in his old studio. Galerie Josefa Sudka is located between two apartment blocks near Ujezd and Kampa and is not visible from the street. Luckily for us the doorbell lets you walk in the courtyard and after you pass three doors you finally see the studio set in the inside garden. Josef Sudek began to work here in 1927 and continued to use the studio until the end of his life. More about the importance of his world-known work here.
The small space has limited possibilities, but looking at the overview of past exhibitions and the schedule for this year, the curator of the gallery is not limited by the space at all. The exhibitions change every one to two months, and they are a blend of new or established authors and the ‘master’ Josef Sudek.
Ujezd is a favorite location for walks and sightseeing, and these two activities usually involve crowds in Prague. Josef Sudek’s studio is always quiet and calming for your mind. After satisfying your mind, choose one of the great bars around, for example artists-concentrating Mlynska Kavarna.
