Esperanto museum to open in Moravian town
The first Esperanto museum in the Czech Republic will open in Svitavy, north-west Moravia, in September next year. The Czech Esperanto Union has about 1000 members speaking the artificial language, invented in the late 19th century. The local Svitavy branch of the union is one of the most active in the country. The museum will be housed in a town library and will host exhibitions on the history of Esperanto with examples of fiction, text books, dictionaries and other materials written in the artificial language.
