The panel exhibition deals with the role of the landscape in the shaping of the Czech national identity in the 2nd half of the 19th century.
The landscape is presented as an important national symbol. It is introduced here not only as a real (physical) environment, as a scene where a wide range of national and tourist activities took place, but also as a space closely connected to the ideas of individuals within the national society. The topic is treated through the perspective of two pairs of Bohemian landscape features (the Říp and Blaník mountains, the Vltava and Elbe rivers), both rich in symbolism.
