National Gallery in Prague
The National Gallery in Prague (Národní galerie v Praze) is a state-owned art gallery which manages the largest collection of art in the Czech Republic. The collections of the gallery are not housed in a single building, but are presented in a number of historic structures within the city of Prague, as well as other places. The largest of the gallery sites is the Veletržní Palác, which houses the National Gallery’s collection of modern art.
DOX Centre of Contemporary Art
The DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Architecture and Design originated as a private initiative, founded on the conviction that Prague belongs on the map of contemporary art and lacked such an alternative centre. Over the course of its existence, DOX has presented many exhibition projects, educational and family programmes. Today it ranks amongst the most progressive artistic institutions in the Czech Republic and enjoys wide popularity amongst the public.
