Warsaw, the capital of the Republic of Poland, was the second point of stay of the Czech-German-Polish exhibition project Europa Jagellonica 1386 – 1572. For the first time in history, the Jagiellonians have been presented as a European dynasty that strongly influenced both art and culture, within the context of Central and East-Central Europe.
The remarkable exhibition project began in Kutná Hora. The theme of its Czech section was “Silver Mining and Art around 1500.” The main part of the exhibition was then moved to Warsaw and continued at two venues – the Wawel Royal Castle and the National Museum between November 2012 and January 2013. The theme of the Warsaw exhibition was “The Jagiellonians – European Rulers between the Baltic, Adriatic and Black Seas”. Finally, Europa Jagellonica will culminate in Potsdam, Germany, from March 2013 until June 2013. The German section theme is “A Bond of Friendship and Love. Jagiellonian Marriage Policy and the Dynasties of the Holy Roman Empire".
