The exhibition will guide visitors through the most prominent phases during which the Treasury’s extensive collection was amassed, introducing not only its rich array of genres and materials, but above all its spiritual wealth. Many generations of our ancestors venerated and placed their hopes on the relics stored in the precious, sumptuously embellished receptacles. Erected in the mid-18th century and remodelled a century later by Ferdinand I, Emperor of Austria, the Chapel of the Holy Rood in Prague Castle’s second courtyard has been selected as the location where the Treasury of St. Vitus Cathedral will be on public display. During the exhibition’s preparatory work, the chapel’s lavishly decorated interior was completely renovated and equipped with the necessary security technology and air-conditioning system.
