The Slav Epic (Czech: Slovanská epopej) is a cycle of 20 large canvases painted by Czech Art Nouveau painter Alfons Mucha between 1910 and 1928. The cycle depicts the mythology and history of Czechs and other Slavic peoples. In 1928, after finishing his monumental work, Mucha bestowed the cycle upon the city of Prague on condition that the city build a special pavilion for it. Prior to 2012, the work was a part of the permanent exhibition at the chateau in the town of Moravský Krumlov in the South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic. In 2012, all 20 works were moved and are displayed together on the ground floor of the Veletržní Palace in an exhibition organized by the National Gallery in Prague (exhibition catalogue: Alfons Mucha – Slovanská epopej).

  • The Slav Epic is being exposed in the National Gallery. You can travel through the history of the Slavs. The paintings of Alfons Mucha are beautiful. The entree fee is also affordable. You can visit it separately from the other modern collection of art in the National Gallery.

  • I'm not Mucha's fan, I personally prefer modern abstract art, but I was really impressed. Paintings are huge, incredible and charming.

  • Awsome 20 massive paintings, incredibility beautiful. To get the most out of it buy the 10k booklet

  • Great experience what you read the explanations while watching (or equivalent going with a guide)
