Dear researchers, due to the limited capacity of places in Map Collection, we recommended you to write us when you want to come and what document (signature) you want to borrow. We will prepare the documents and reserve you study place. If the places will be occupied, we will offer you another term. This is especially useful for researchers outside Prague.
