Lonely Planet review

Spanning a branch of the river beneath a 15th-century water tower is the Mánes Building (1927–30), a masterpiece of functionalist architecture designed by Otakar Novotný. It houses an art gallery founded in the 1920s by a group of artists, headed by painter Josef Mánes, as an alternative to the Czech Academy of Arts.

It is still one of Prague’s best venues for viewing contemporary art, with a lively program of changing exhibitions. However, will be closed for renovation works until September 2013.
