Břevnov is the seventh exhibition from the series of the historic suburbs of Prague. Similar to the previous exhibitions, three-dimensional artefacts, paintings, historical postcards, photographs, prints, and other items will introduce the most remarkable places and moments of life in Břevnov and its vicinity.

The exhibition will cover the history of the suburb up to the mid-20th century, partly extending to the 1980s.

Visitors will learn about the history of this interesting part of Prague which is the home of the earliest Benedictine monastery in Bohemia. The territory originally encompassed the villages of Břevnov (later Velký Břevnov), Malý Břevnov (Břevnovek), and Tejnka, which, along with several homesteads, flanked Bělohorská Street leading from Prague to Western Bohemia.
