Lesser known treasures of Prague to reopen for European Heritage Days

05-09-2010

Dozens of monuments and museums in Prague that are normally not open to the public will be made available for the annual European Heritage Days between September 11 and 19, some for the entire week and some for the weekend. Some of the venues include the 18th century townhouse U Bílého lva at Prague Castle, the presidential salons at the train stations Hlavní nádraží and Masarykovo, and the Buquoyský Palace where the French Embassy is located. Technical monuments will also be opened, such as the 1932 gas container at Libeň, a watermill at Troja and a forge in Kozí St in Old Town. The event is organised by the Association of Historical Settlements in Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia.
