Housed on the first floor of the Cloth Hall, the Gallery of 19th-Century Polish Art is the oldest branch of the National Museum in Krakow. It contains the most famous museum collection in Poland, and is at the same time one of the largest permanent exhibitions of 19th-century Polish painting and sculpture. The Gallery presents works of the greatest Polish painters, awarded at both Polish and international exhibitions, e.g. Michałowski, Grottger, Matejko, Siemiradzki, Weloński, Malczewski, Wyczółkowski, and Chełmoński. Items on display are not only the works of the highest European quality, but they also reflect the aspirations of the nation, though divided territorially yet undefeated.
The Museum runs also a cafe and a terrace with one of the most picturesque views of Krakow’s Main Market Square.

I've been in Sukiennice gallery some time ago and I've had a shock when I saw the new exhibition! Now this place looks really like a noble painting gallery. And the cafe on the terrace is a must!
It was great to have a little glimpse into Polish cultural heritage. A top class museum.
Kupilam tu piekne goralskie pantofle.
If you want to see 'Frenzy of Exultations' of Władysław Podkowiński - go there! Good place to take a picture of Main Square from terrace also.
Why no reviews? Is it that good or that bad? Am thinking about visiting...
