  • Mysterious Bond


    The exhibition "Mysterious Bond" was created on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the renewal of diplomatic relations between the then Czechoslovakia and the State of Israel. The exhibition describes the mysterious and deep bond that has existed for centuries between the Czech and Jewish nations and pictures the historical milestones that shaped this relationship. This exhibition, the first of its kind, selects and presents, symbolically on twelve panels, several events and less well-known phenomena, from the first reports sent by a Jewish diplomat concerning Prague, to the resumption of diplomatic relations after the Velvet Revolution in 1990. It tells the story of the protection of Jews by King Přemysl Otakar II, describes the Czech and Israeli Golem, reveals the secret operation of DI and presents many other known and less known events from our history. The exhibition is the result of cooperation between students and diplomats. The drawings and graphic design are by students of the Ladislav Sutnar Faculty of Design and Art of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen under the supervision of artist and illustrator Renáta Fučíková. The themes and texts have been compiled by Hebraist and diplomat Robert Řehák. The exhibition has the support and encouragement of Ambassador Daniel Meron and the Embassy of the State of Israel.

  • UNESCO exhibition at the Castle Tower / Great Spa Towns of Europe


    The Castle Tower above the Market Colonnade is a remnant of the castle built here in 1349 by Charles IV. For many years, much of the tower was unused and not accessible to the public, but in 2022 it has again come to life. On the first anniversary of Karlovy Vary being inscribed in the UNESCO World Heritage List (along with another ten European cities), the town has put together an interactive exhibition that introduces visitors to this international heritage project. The tower features an arcaded gallery from which important guests of this spa town were ceremoniously welcomed by fanfares. The gallery, which also offers an exquisite view over town, is now open to the public. Come and learn, in an interactive manner, about all eleven spa towns that together make up the Great Spa Towns of Europe!

    The exhibition is open daily from 10 am to 6 pm. You can reach the Castle Tower via an elevator straight from Lázeňská Street (Zámecký vrch 431/2, 360 01 Karlovy Vary). For more information visit www.karlovyvary.cz/en/castle-tower.
