Olomouc Museum opens multimedia exhibition on Emperor Rudolf II

The Regional Museum in Olomouc has opened a multimedia exhibition about Emperor Rudolf II – a hologram of whom will serve as a guide, a museum spokesman told ČTK.

The exhibition features little-known facts about the monarch’s life, including about his less-documented youth and studies in Spain, complicated relationship with his younger brother Matthias, murderous son, and many mistresses.

The exhibition also highlights interesting details about the items in the vast imperial art collection that Rudolf II amassed when Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia.
