Summary

Prague's museums and galleries hold masterpieces from medieval paintings to the latest in contemporary art, and many are found in buildings as fascinating as their collections. This guide introduces travellers to the wealth of art and architecture in and around Prague. It provides a fascinating context to each work, explaining styles, patrons, and artists, and easy-to-follow trails to lead art lovers throughout the city and nearby towns.
The guide features: full-color photos and painting reproductions; critical descriptions of the outstanding works that can be seen in Prague's most important museums and sites; a reference section with biographies of important artists and historical figures, glossary, and index; suggestions for viewing art and architecture both indoors and out, complete with maps and walking trails; and a section on day trips outside of Prague.
