An audio guide in the form of K700 mobile app has been introduced recently to add to the exhibition Charles IV 1316–2016. On the International Children’s Day, both the children’s and adult versions were launched to better describe the stories behind the most remarkable exhibits of Charles IV’s era.
The Czech-Bavarian Land Exhibition, which is held to mark the 700th birth anniversary of Charles IV, will present an exceptional selection of works of art and culture of his era up to 25 September 2016.
Gratuitous entry for children, youth under 18, and students under 26, introduced by the National Gallery in Prague in collaboration with Komerční banka, applies until the end of August 2016.
In 2016 the National Gallery in Prague celebrates the 220th anniversary of its foundation. The anniversary exhibition on the theme of gifting and generosity will link all the Gallery’s buildings and collections together for the very first time. One of the most famous contemporary artists, the Chinese conceptualist Ai Wei-wei, will be exhibiting in Prague, also for the first time. As well as this 2016 will be marked by the 700th anniversary of the birth of Charles IV, who will be the focus of an extensive Czech-German exhibition project.
