Galerie Rudolfinum in Prague – A gallery well worth visiting
This is a high-class gallery. I have even noticed discussions with numerous voices claiming that there have been lately much better exhibitions in Rudolfinum than in the National Gallery. I’ll mention Gottfried Helnwein – Angels Sleeping and Gregory Crewdson which were really one of the best exhibitions I have ever seen.
The gallery is located in one of Prague’s most beautiful buildings – Rudolfinum. It is a Neo-Renaissance concert hall open in 1885 as a multifunctional cultural institution. The construction was organized by Ceská sporitelna (one of the main banks in Czech Republic) on the occasion of its 50th anniversary.
When walking by you will definitely be offered concert tickets by the street vendors. I must say that concerts of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra in Rudolfinum are a great cultural experience as well.
As for the actual exhibitions, don’t hesitate to visit the gallery’s website to see what is on. Right now “Herbert Tobias (1924-1982)“ exhibition is on the program until March 23rd. More information here.
