Exhibition: Map of the Kingdom of Bohemia, 1720

We cordially invite you to the exhibition Map of the Kingdom of Bohemia, 1720. The exhibition presents the life and work of the Austrian military engineer and cartographer Johann Christoph Müller (1673–1721), whose so-called large map of Bohemia under the title Mappa geographica Regni Bohemiae was published 300 years ago. The exhibition was already created in 2020, but was not available due to the coronavirus measures, so we are making it available to the public again.
