Rococo Kinsky Palace

Prague

Rococo Kinsky Palace at Old Town Square

Origin

The Rococo Kinsky Palace lying next to the House At the Stone Bell. It was built between 1755-1765.  The architect of this Palace was Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer. He was really succesfull, hence he built many other  Prague Baroque buildings. On the other hand C G Bossi decorated the facade. Until he died, the owner was Count Jan Arnošt Golze.

Change of owner and rebuilding

After the death of Count Golz Prince Rudolf Kinský bought the palace in 1768. In his possession, the courtyard belonging to the palace was extended, so the interior took modification into a classicist form.

Present

Today, the palace is home to the collection of the National Gallery in Prague. There is also a collection of “Art of Asia and the ancient Mediterranean”. If you are not so excited about the exposition, look at this house at Old Town Square. Significantly it is worth a visit during the Signal Festival, which with its lighting effects decorates the palace every year. Because of its great location it is great landmark to admire. Therefore hope you will enjoy it.
