This exhibition will display10 treasures, mainly coins, which are connected to the famous trade route, the Silk Road. The Silk Road was an ancient ever-changing network of trade routes which connected the East of Eurasia with the West. These paths were used not only to transport material goods, but thanks to them interactions between different cultures took place. Ideas, beliefs, technological advancement, even illnesses and genes; all these were exchanged on the Silk Road. Different currencies and money are closely connected to the world of trade and so the displayed treasures will tell stories of different currencies and the historical events that accompanied their existence.

Entrance fee to the openning event is free, and after it is 40/20 CZK.
