Prague Castle opens long-awaited Comenius exhibition featuring 500 artefacts

Four months after its inauguration, an exhibition dedicated to Czech theologian, educator and philosopher Jan Amos Komenský, also known as Comenius, finally opened its doors to the public, following the easing of anti-coronavirus restrictions earlier this week.

The exhibition presents some 500 artefacts on loan from around 80 museums and collectors from the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Germany, Poland and Austria. It is being organised within the framework of the 350th anniversary of the death of Comenius, considered the “father of modern education”.
