On Národní Avenue, the Gallery is housed in the former Vilímkovo Publishing House and bookstore and bears the name of famous Czech painter, graphic artist and illustrator Václav Špála. In business since 1957, the Gallery has experienced several good and bad times. Today, it showcases high-quality projects, mostly with a very harmonious relationship between the space and the items displayed.
The Galerie Václava Špály specialises in the works of the middle-aged generation of Czech artists working in painting, photography and sculpture, who represent the very best of the local scene. Alternate presentations of painting, photography and sculpture are held there regularly.
