Some of the best art galleries in the Czech Republic are located in Prague, but culture is not limited to the capital city. Brno also has much to offer to art lovers. We take a look at some of the best art galleries in the country.
The Brno House of Arts encompasses several buildings, including a modern art gallery housed in the basement of a 12th-centuryRomanesque building. The gallery hosts rotating exhibits and doesn’t hold a permanent collection. As a result, the space always feels fresh and current. The gallery specializes in modern sculpture work created using unusual mediums (from cables to metal to cement) and young artists.

MeetFactory was founded by renowned Czech artist and sculptor David Černý. The art center is located inside a former industrial warehouse which actually houses three different galleries, as well as an artist-in-residence program and a space for concerts. The main space here is the MeetFactory Gallery, which presents rotating exhibits curated by either Černý himself or an appointed staff member. Kostka, a smaller gallery, is reserved for solo shows of painters, photographers and other artists doing unique work. The third space is the Wall Gallery, which presents street art painted directly on the gallery’s walls.
