National Museum: Lapidarium

The Lapidarium contains a display of about 400 sculptures from 11th to 19th century. They have been collected from all over Prague and among them are some of the original Charles Bridge statues.

What I liked best was the bronze monument to Field Marshall Radetsky, the leader of the 19th cent Austrian army. Parts of a marble fountain that stood once in Old Town Square occupy one entire room. When it was still in its original place it was never used as it leaked.

I liked the way the curator laid out the exhibits. Red hearts in all sizes lie scattered in the exhibitions rooms. They make the place more colourful because most sculptures are dull grey, brown or anyway dark in colour.

The museum is inside the Exhibition Grounds. Take tram 5, 12 or 17 to Vystaviste and surprise the lady issuing entrance tickets and the lady who looks after your coat, because the museum seems to attract only a very small number of visitors.

See 'my pictures' for photos of some of the statues.
