Civitas Carolina or Building in the Times of Charles IV
- 13. 5. 2016 – 19. 2. 2017
The main exhibition hall will present building crafts, at the time of the great building boom during the reign of Charles IV. On show will be a series of historical building elements and construction procedures, for example, a functioning replica of the medieval human-power driven wooden hoist, whose design is based on the drawing in the Bible of King Wenceslas IV. Among other examples of large construction machinery will be a fully functional replica of a Gothic pile driver used for driving/hammering wooden pilot posts into the foundations of buildings or bridges.
