Trade Fair Palace (Veletržní palác)

This huge grimly palace is the venue for the National Gallery’s Centre for Modern & Contemporary Art. A seven storey building constructed in 1928 by Oldrich Tyl and Josef Furchs is definitely Prague’s ultimate functionalist masterpiece. Not too obvious when viewing the exterior but clear to see once inside. There is collection of outstanding 19th – 20th century Czech and European Art.

This huge glass-fronted building was described by the well-known modernist architect, Le Corbusier, as ‘breathtaking’.

There are four floors so you can easily spend a whole day here. The main exhibition hall is used for its original purpose – trade fairs.

Address: The Trade Fair Palace, Dukelských hrdinů 47, Holešovice; Open: Tue—Sun 10am-6pm. website
