Zachęta National Gallery of Art

Local name: Zachęta Narodowa Galeria Sztuki

“Zachęta” (Encouragement) is the largest contemporary art gallery not only in Warsaw, but also in Poland. Its growing popularity among tourists results from a rich collection of paintings, sculptures, photographs, cinematography and various installations of great Polish artists.

From the very beginning of the Zachęta Salon (late nineteenth century), the greatest artists gathered their works in it. However, in the meantime, like the whole city of Warsaw, this place was also affected by the Second World War. After the war, the Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts was resumed, and since then the National Gallery of Modern Art has managed to show a huge amount of works by well-known artists, including Pablo Picasso, Max Ernst and Paul Cezanne.

“Zachęta” is a place to come back to. Exhibitions at the National Gallery of Modern Art are temporary in nature. Each time you can see something different, but still very interesting.
