Central Europe Jewelry Attractions


#1

I’m planning a trip to Eastern Europe (Warsaw, Krakow, Budapest,
Vienna and Prague) in the fall. I would greatly appreciate any
on special galleries or jewelry exhibits in those areas.

Thanks in advance,
Karen Strauss

when visiting Vienna I strongly recommend to visit Galerie Slavik
http://www.galerie-slavik.comand Galerie V&V
http://www.kunstnet.at/V+Vfor contemporary jewelry.

If you are interested in historical jewelry design too, you should
not miss to see:

  • MAK (Museum fFCr Angewandte Kunst) Museum of Arts and Crafts -
    they have got a very remarkable collection of Art Nouveau jewelry and
    silverware, and also glass, furniture, Textiles, ceramics, etc.
    (“Wiener Werkstette”),

  • the “Schatzkammer” the Habsburg treasury of the late Emperors,

  • “Kunsthistorisches Museum” Museum of History of Arts (Cellini’s
    "Saliera"),

  • “Volkerkunde-Museum” Museum of Ethnology.

They all have very rich collections of jewelry and Arts, really
worth to see. They all habe a website where you can check opening
times, entrance fees, etc.

Now living near Munich, I have been born in Vienna, and whenever I
go there I never miss to see at least the two galleries and the MAK.

Have a nice trip !

There are other galleries and museums too,they sometimes have
exhibitions focused on jewellery as for instance Kunsthalle
Wien,Kunsthaus Wien,Volkskundemuseum,but it is dependent on their
annual exhibition programs.

That’s all for now. If you need any further please inform
me.

around!
