Museum dedicated to famous saint reopens in Nepomuk

A museum dedicated to the Czech Saint Jan Nepomuk was reopened in a special ceremony in the town of Nepomuk in the region of Plzeň on Sunday. The opening was led by Cardinal Dominik Duka. On display for several hours was the reliquary of the saint, one of the most valuable of Czech relics. The museum was established in 1930 but closed in 1950 by the then-communist regime in Czechoslovakia. The museum has four exhibition areas, as well as additional rooms for curators and researchers, the Czech News Agency reported. It will display valuable artifacts as well as Baroque musical instruments.
