Folk faith

For many centuries, faith has taken an irreplaceable place in human life. It illuminated the functioning of the world, offering stability, protection and hope in uncertain times. Through a new virtual exhibition, look into the diverse spiritual life of rural people in the 18th and 19th centuries and discover part of the National Museum's extensive ethnographic collections.

The Prague uprising

77 years ago, on May 5, 1945, an uprising broke out against the German occupation in our capital. The uprising began on May 5 at six o'clock in the morning after the Czech Radio broadcast, which was broadcast by the announcer Zdeněk Mančala in a provocative Czech-German language. Recall with us five days of hard fighting in the territory of Prague through negatives in the collection of modern Czech history of the National Museum.
