Bodies - The Exhibition is in Prague now The exhibition Bodies… The Exhibition arrived in Prague for the first time to show, according to the organizers, the anatomy of human body. The exhibition started five days ago, people have to stand in long queues to buy tickets.

The exhibition showing dead bodies that were modified is very controversial. Some people find it fascinating, others are outraged. A citizen of Prague has already sent a complaint that this exhibition breaks Czech laws when the bodies are not shown in coffins and that they are used for commercial reasons. Many objections are also raised against students of medicine who guide at the exhibition and tell more about the bodies and human organs. Many doctors think it’s unethical.

If the opponents of the exhibition, famous all over the world, are successful, the exhibition might be finished earlier than planned. Bodies – The Exhibition is on show in Palac Lucerna (Stepanska street 61). For more info about the exhibition, visit here the official pages.
