The exhibition Queen Dagmar, Princess of Bohemia travels around Denmark in the year that we 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. In October 2012 the exhibition was presented at the Faculty Library of Humanities of the University of Copenhagen and in November at the Roskilde Library. The exhibition will stay in Maribo until 5 January 2013 from where it will continue its journey to the island of Møn and to Aarhus.
