70,000 children and students visited the National Gallery last year alone.
In 2016, a number of children and students, who visited the collections of the National Gallery in Prague doubled since the preceding year. Owing to the National Gallery’s cooperation with Komerční banka, they have had this opportunity since 2015. While 70,000 children, teenagers under 18 and students under 26 took advantage of this opportunity in 2016, it was only 49,000 in 2015.
“We were very pleasantly surprised and pleased by this outcome. I see the project of free admittance for children and young people to the National Gallery in Pragueas one of the most successful schemes that Komerční banka has launched in the Czech Republic. We are happy to actively support the learning and culture of the Czech young generation,” said Albert Le Dirac’h, Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer of Komerční banka.
