It’s been a long time without a post. We feel bad. The spring has arrived and I guess we’ve been too excited to sit at the computer too much these days.
The latest news that has caught our attention is kind of a shocker. The Charles IV – Emperor by the Grace of God exhibition is SOLD OUT as of April 4. The only way to get tickets now is to go to the ticket office at the Prague Castle and see if there have been any cancelled reservations. I don’t quite understand how tickets can be sold out for the remaining seven weeks. School trips maybe? If that’s the case, it’s a bit of a pity I think. There was a school trip at the exhibition when we went back in March. The teenagers were chatting, throwing jokes around and making fun of the Gothic portraits on display. They were not in the least bit interested in the exhibits, which is only natural at that age. Well, I hope I’m wrong and I’ll just try to imagine that all tickets have been presold to those who are really interested in the art and life at the court of Charles IV and not to groups whose organizers included the exhibition in their agendas just to fill the sightseeing schedule.
We wrote about the event here.
