Develop your taste for Socialist Realism at National Gallery of Art. The gallery's two floors showcase international works of art, but the highlight is the local communist-era propaganda. Although used to promote political ideology, each piece has artistic value, making the exhibit both an exploration in art and history. The Social Realism movement dominated art behind the Iron Curtain for many years, representating of the values of that period. The museum is small, so take your time investigating each piece of artwork. Purchase your tickets from the reception when you arrive.

  • interesting paintings but 40% of propaganda art is hidden i suspect it is the way to force people to visit again to see other paintings from the second floor, look at the back yard from the window.....  more »
  • I overall enjoyed the pieces of artwork but they creepily follow you around to make sure you don’t touch anything. Building isn’t very well taken care of.  more »

  • Great place to explore art from the Communist period. Staff is very professional and polite. Be sure not to miss the modern construction in front of it. Price of admittance is 200 leke
  • Some truly awful Communist era propaganda art. Interesting politically, artistically terrible.
