Beginning September 3, 2013, the City of Prague Museum will present to the public the Chain of Office and some of the gifts that have been donated to the mayors of Prague, in particular in the  second half of the 20th century, and which are in the collections of the City of Prague Museum and the Prague City Archives.The chain will be on display along with the city Seals used prior to the mid-20th century.


The Mayor’s Chain of Office was designed in 1897 by Antonín Balšánek, who also designed the Main Building of the Museum at Florenc. Visitors will appreciate the connection between these two different artistic forms realized by a single artist.
