Located in Holesovice and situated at the Prague exhibition fairgrounds is the Lapidary of the National Museum. The lapidary features a large collection of stone sculptures, most of which were created in Bohemia from the 11th century to the 19th century. The National Museum has over 2,000 sculptures in total kept in a safe, however only the best 400 are exhibited here. At the Lapidary you can see the original sculptures from the Charles Bridge, sculptures from the Loreto and statues from Vysehrad. The sculptures are showcased in eight exhibition halls. It is interesting to note that in 1995 the museum placed in the top ten most beautiful exhibitions in Europe at an international competition.
