The Nobel Prize in Literature

On 10th October 2019, the 118th Nobel Prize of Literature was announced and it was awarded to the German writer Peter Handke. Thirty-five years ago, the prize was awarded also to Czech poet, translator and writer Jaroslav Seifert. On eCollections, you can check out his contribution to the world of literature by listening to the audio version of the Interview with Helena Friedlova about the work of Josef Seifert after he had been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature or you can listen to two of his exceptional works: Sonnets about Prague and Eight Days.

 

Tramping Century

Camp fires, guitars, combat boots, U.S. kitbags, etc. Do you know what connects these terms? Correctly! Tramping! The new exhibition in the Kinský Folly is devoted to this important cultural and social movement of Czechoslovakian and Czech history of the twentieth century. We have also prepared a small tasting for you at the eSbírky.cz portal. More info here!
 

Extraordinary virtual exhibition

Let's enjoy the special tour over the e-collection objects that were documented during fifteenth season of Prague Museum Night in our unique pop-up photo studio which was set up in National Memorial on the Vítkov Hill. We thank all participants for providing unique artifacts to the virtual exhibition and we believe that on the occasion of next Prague Museum Night we will meet again!

The book belongs to me!

Are you keen on "ex libris"? If so, you have a chance to visit the new exhibition on the National Memorial on the Vítkov hill which is called "The book belongs to me! History of Czech ex libris since 1945". Some historical ex libris or other artifacts related to its manufacturing technology are available also in the form of virtual exhibition!
