Trade Fair Palace

Trade Fair Palace

One of the first and simultaneously one of the biggest functionalist buildings of Prague is located in Holešovice.

The initial purpose of the Trade Fair Palace was conceived as a place for the organisation of trade fairs, but it currently serves the needs of the National Gallery in Prague. The palace was built in 1925-1928 and was, at the time, the biggest building of its kind in the world. You will find a unique collection of Czech and foreign modern and contemporary arts here.  

The functionalist building of the Trade Fair Palace is the work of two architects – Josef Fuchs and Oldřich Tyl. The National Gallery in Prague exhibits more than 2,000 exhibits here within a total area of 13,500 m². When visiting the palace, you should not omit the permanent exposition of 20th and 21st century arts, which includes a collection of French and European art. Here, you can see the works of world renowned artists such as, Alfons Mucha, Pablo Picasso, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Georges Braque, Auguste Renoir and Gustav Klimt. In addition to further works of the key authors of Czech fine arts, you can also see exhibits of architecture and furniture, and to a lesser extent also photographs, design and scenography.
Tip: The National Gallery annually celebrates the anniversary of its establishment on 5 February, and admission to all permanent expositions of the NG is free on the occasion.
