The newest addition to Prague’s contemporary art scene is the M Factory situated in a refurbished factory. The Krehky Gallery will showcase the “Krehky Limited Edition” (which opened in May) consisting of contemporary Czech glass and porcelain sculptures by Czech artists.
The showcase consists of a panorama of contemporary Czech design with viewings of Czech glass and porcelain. The curatorial concept and selection was made by Jana Zielinski and Jiri Macek for original architecture by Maxim Velcovsky, a new star of European Design.
The Krehky project maps the current landscape of Czech design through its most significant works. Glass and porcelain play a fundamental role due to Czech industrial traditions. The exhibition enables visitors to gain an expansive and emotional look at the beauty of life, but does not abandon the profundity of the history of Czech design.

Prague is, all at the same time, one of the most modern and classic cities in all of Europe. Lots of films that take place in centuries past are filmed there, taking advantage of its antique style, but at its heart is a bustling metropolis.
If the city’s history isn’t enough to get you over to the Czech Republic, check out these events from the the Czech Tourist Authority, with everything from food festivals to museum exhibits.
