The exhibition is organised to commemorate the 100th anniversary from the declaration of Czechoslovakia.
In October 1918, Prague Castle became a symbol of a new, independent country and also the residence of the first representative (president).
The needs of a presidential residence resulted in the reconstruction and rebuilding of the castle by Karel Fiala and Josip Plečník. Furthermore, in that time, the works on the St Veits Dom were completed thanks to Kamil Hilbert and Ivan Borkovský.
The exhibition in the Theresian Wing will offer documentations of historical, personal and building development and on the display will be put also the results of archaeological explorations.
