Exhibition of the City of Prague Museum
The exhibition presents two important moments in the history of Prague – the events of 1848, especially the Pentecostal Uprising, and the declaration of the independent Czechoslovak state on 28 October 1918 including the reflections of Prague life which resulted in the establishment of Czechoslovakia. The exhibition shows the changes in Prague during the second half of the 19th century. Over several decades, Prague underwent remarkable modernisation, was surrounded by suburbs, and constructed many transport structures and important public buildings. Altogether, Prague was transformed into a modern metropolis. The exhibition presents Prague as a venue of a significant historical epoch whose impact went far beyond its borders; nonetheless, Prague was mostly a key place for acts and decisions.
