Elections in the past

As early as tomorrow, we will find out who will be the president of the Czech Republic for the next five years. But what did the elections look like in the past? View negatives from the National Museum's collection illustrating elections in the second half of the 20th century. Here we can find an example of elections to the National Assembly in 1948, or elections to representative bodies, which took place, among other things, in the maternity ward. There are also pictures from the presidential elections, specifically from 1948 and 1975.

Music of architecture by Kryštof Dientzenhofer

Did you know that in Malá Strana, on the site of the former church of St. Máří Magdaleny is home to the Czech Museum of Music, which manages 700,000 documents of musical history? If not, we hope that the currently ongoing Kryštof Dientzenhofer's Music of Architecture exhibition will tempt you to visit. One of the most famous Baroque builders, Kryštof Dientzenhofer, whose death has passed 300 years since last year, built palaces, town houses, castles, but mainly churches and monasteries, which have been connected by music since time immemorial. Through period copies, rare prints and new recordings, the exhibition provides an overview of the repertoire of selected locations, in the construction of which K. Dientzenhofer participated. The exhibition lasts only until January 23, so don't delay your visit.
