The exhibition Queen Dagmar, Princess of Bohemia travels around Denmark to commemorate the 800th anniversary of a historical person who embodied a direct personal connection between Denmark and the Czech Republic. The exhibition was first presented in May 2012 in Ribe (where the Queen lived and died) during the festival Dagmar800. Another host of this exhibition became Ringsted where Dagmar is buried. After the third stop, this time in Copenhagen, the exhibition travelled to the Roskilde Library. In December people could see it in the regional museum Stitftsmuseet Maribo. In February it will continue from Møn to Aarhus.
