Museum of Navarre

Pamplona, Spain

The Museum of Navarra is the art museum of Navarre. It is located in the old hospital of 16th-century Nuestra Señora de la Misericordia de Pamplona, converted to museum only in 1956. The origins of the collection are works obtained by a provincial Commission in 1844, and displayed in 1910 at what is now the Cámara de los Comptos. To the right of the entrance is the facade of the church of the hospital.

The exhibits in the four story museum is chronologically arranged, starting from prehistoric works to the 20th-century.

Forget Goya, the painting from the 1930s and today have more life!

One of the coolest museums I've been to. Great history, fantastic major pieces of art. A real sleeper.

Very interesting, not all the exhibitions were to our taste but nonetheless worth a viewing. The exhibitions are spread over several floors so there are stairs to climb but there is also a lift.

Interesting and complete museum about the community of Navarra. From prehistory to our days in 5 different exposition floors. It worth the visit!

Krivoklát Castle

Křivoklát Castle was founded in the 12th century, belonging to the kings of Bohemia. During the reign of Přemysl Otakar II a large, monumental royal castle was built, later rebuilt by king Václav IV and later enlarged by king Vladislav of Jagellon.

The castle was damaged by fire several times. It was turned into a harsh prison and the building slowly deteriorated. During the 19th century, the family of Fürstenberg became the owners of the castle and had it reconstructed after a fire in 1826.

Today the castle serves as a museum, tourist destination and place for theatrical exhibitions. Collections of hunting weapons, Gothic paintings and books are stored there.
