Theme:
"The Centre of Europe around 1000 AD" is a joint Czech, German, Hungarian, Polish and Slovakian exhibition project. It focuses on the formation of central Europe, which began more than 1,000 years ago with the entry of the West Slavs and Hungarians into occidental culture. Contact between the West Slavs and Hungarians and the neighbouring cultures - the Byzantine Empire to the south-east and the East Frankish, later Roman-German, Empire to the south-west - took many forms and varied in intensity. Long-distance trade and raids, military occupation and royal legations, Christian missionary activity and pagan reaction, the politics of noble marriages, and contacts among ordinary country people all played a part.
