Memorial at Vitkov hill will be closed

National memorial at Vitkov Hill is vibrant of life in these days. This is something like goodbye before a time of a sleep – the memorial will be under reconstruction for three years.

Vitkov Memorial is known for the largest equestrian statue in the world. It was a memorial of legionaries and it was a mausoleum for communistic president Klement Gottwald during some years of a totality.

After reconstruction in 2009, there will be modern museum about Czech history of 20th century. The museum should have multimedia expositions and presentations. First exposition will be Masaryk’s Republic 1918-1928. Tomas Garrigue Masaryk is the founder and first president of Czechoslovakia. Money for reconstruction comes from State budget.

Last days in Vitkov Memorial belong to a theater cycle Nights in Mausoleum. This event was very popular on May and therefore it returns.
