Art Gallery

The building of Galerie umění (Art Gallery) was built in 1912 by architect Professor Seitz. It was originally constructed for the Chamber of Trades in Cheb to display various products and merchandise. It has been housing the town's art gallery since 1953. In the vicinity, you may find Friedrich Schiller's monument erected in 1909. The Art Nouveau stone relief was designed by architect F. Ohmann and it was carved into stone by Max Hiller. In the park adjoining the open-air cinema, you may find a monument installed in honour of Czech music composer Bedřich Smetana in 1949. It is the work of sculptor J. Wagner.
