Dům u Černé Matky Boží review Rate it

Renovated and reopened in 2003, this fantastic cubist building and collection of paintings and sculptures strive to present a totally plane-defying environment. Worth a visit for the Josef Gočár-designed building alone, the House of the Black Madonna is perhaps the finest example of cubist architecture you'll find in Prague. Despite its new lease of life under the umbrella of the National Gallery, English-language information on displays remains frustratingly scarce. Nevertheless, it proudly houses a collection of unique works focusing on the feverish cubism period of 1910-19, with an engaging series of paintings by Emil Filla, Bohumil Kubišta, Vincenc Benea, Josef Čapek, Antonín Procházka, Václav Špála and the surrealist Jan Zrzavý.

Find time to stop for a drink at the Grand Cafe Orient on the first floor of the building. Beautiful inside. It opened for business and then closed for EIGHTY YEARS before being renovated and reopened. Now thats what you call a lunch break. Inside tip courtesy of livingprague.com.
