It was excellent
I absolutely loved the place! This was my first time seeing the gallery and I loved the collection and exhibition. If you are an art lover, make sure you don't miss the National Gallery.
Raphael, Van Gogh, Da Vinci and various others, I am such a huge fan of these artists and to see their work was simply mind-blowing. I am definitely re-visiting the gallery as often as I can.
