New exhibition marking the reign of Czech King Wenceslas IV, on the 600th anniversary of his death. A monarch who bridged the period of prosperity under his father, Charles IV, and religious and social upheaval which followed.
Among many others exhibits there is a copy of the Wenceslas IV Bible, a medieval codex with more than 650 illustrations. There are technical copies of glorious period paintings by the Master of the Třeboň Altarpiece and others.
Visitors interested in lost sites or works of architecture as they appeared in Wenceslas IV’s day, can also look forward to viewing architectural 3-D models of past cathedrals or churches – some of which no longer exist.
Admission is free.
