„Long Live the 1st Republic“
„After the Great War, there appeared a new world. Men discover sports, ladies unveil their ankles and visit social clubs. Cafés become very popular, you can hear swing rhythms in the radio. Functionalistic architecture changes the look of Kutná Hora. No doubt it is worth to imagine the life in the town where your great grandfather invited your great grandmother to visit the cinema.“
The project presents Kutná Hora at the period of the 1st Republic from several aspects. In the chapel of the Dačický House, there is an exhibition called Kutná Hora Police Investigating Team. Did you know that in our town there was a gendarmerie school seated in Hrádek? Do you know how many dogs the police investigating team had? The exhibition curator JUDr. Michal Dlouhý, PhD. presents the history of gendarmerie in Kutná Hora and lent beautiful exhibits dating from that time, which will evoke memories of almost everybody…
Imagine that in the years 1918-1938 Kutná Hora had 62 inns, hotels, restaurants and wine bars. This all is surveyed by Miroslav Štrobl by means of panels which are a part of the exhibition Respectful Bow situated on the 1st floor. We must not forget that at that time, right in the Dačický House there was a restaurant called „U Šašků“.
