Exhibition "The Perfect Diplomat"

Czernins - ambassadors, travelers, collectors. The exhibition presents the not much generally known theme - the diplomatic missions of the Czech nobility between the 17th and 20th century.

Exhibition The Perfect Diplomat. The Czernin family – ambassadors, travelers, collectors

The exhibition is presented in the second floor of Adam's building since the 21st of July 2018.

The most interesting exhibits are certainly the Turkish tent, drapes and other objects brought by Herman Černín from his diplomatic missions in Ottoman Empire, as well as the parts of the collection of Herman's grandnephew Jan Humprecht. 

Part of the exhibition also presents the education and acquirement of the diplomatic experiences of the young members of the family Czernin - especially the so called "Grand Tour" of Herman Jakub through Italy, France or Spain.

The exhibition shows nearly four hundreds of artefacts which remind the interesting and important historical events, witnessed by the prime diplomats, members of the family Czernin.


We keep the lunch break between 12 and 13 o'clock in September, October and November.
