One-thousand-year history in a nutshell
The entrance to the exhibition is impressive, as the visitors are presented with the medieval gate from Karlštejn, which shows how conquerors tried to break it. Other exhibits include the the grille from the well at Jindřichův Hradec chateau, St. Maur reliquary or paintings by Master Theodorik. In contrast, there are also such exhibits as Benz automobile that belonged to Prince Karel V of Schwarzenberg from the year 1913 from Orlík Chateau, mechanical vacuum cleaner from the chateau in Hluboká, portrait of Mechtilda Lichnovská by Oskar Kokoschka from the chateau in Hradec nad Moravicí, or the will written by President T. G. Masaryk. It is hard to say which of the more than six hundred exhibits is the most impressive.
A guide has been published, whose editor is the author of the exhibition, Petr Pavelec. It costs 90 CZK and is available at the Prague Castle Riding School’s ticket office, just like other publications published by the National Heritage Institute (in the Czech and English version).
