ational Technical Museum opened a new exhibition dedicated to this exceptional architect. It is also 120th years ago when he was appointed to be in charge of finishing the construction of Saint Vitus Cathedral.
Kamil Hilbert signed into the history of Czech architecture as a man who retakes after Josef Mocker the construction works on unfinished St. Vitus Cathedral. His work was not easy at all especially according to the bad shape of the construction that was damaged during two disastrous fires first in 1541 and by the second one in 1757.
The exhibition is to be seen in the small gallery of exposition of Architecture, Civil engineering and Desing from 19th April to 15th September 2019
