#3 LAPIDARIUM, MUSEUM IN PRAGUE
Address: Výstaviště 422, Prague 7 - Holešovice, 170 00, Czech republic
The name lapidarium put himself in recent times as a label for collections of stone statues and architectural fragments of medieval and modern origin. The most common reason for the creation of the lapidarium was the reconstruction of the Gothic cathedral, which has been going on in many cases since the 19th century. Damaged original architectural articles and sculptures exchanged during these repairs, aesthetically and historically despite their damage still valuable, were often stored indoors to protect them from further destruction.
The Lapidarium of the National Museum in Prague also has fragments from Prague's cathedral, but it is only a small part of its collections, whose composition is much richer. In its present, the collection of Lapidarium of the National Museum in Prague consists of about two thousand collections, of which over four hundred of the best pieces are exhibited, while others are kept in the depository. Generally speaking, these are documents of stonework and sculpture in stone from Czech lands, especially from Prague, in the time range of the 11th to the 19th century, exceptionally from the beginning of the 20th century.
The addition of the Lapidarium collection includes three bronze sculptures by Franz Joseph, Marshal Radek and Franz Joseph I. In the two largest halls create the atmosphere of historical collections also Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque beamed ceilings coming from demolished buildings in Prague.
