The Klementinum building itself (the largerst in the Old Town) is worth to explore as well as the interior of the National Library, where fundamental collections - literature heritage has been stored.
The exhibition presents the results of an expert survey of manuscripts and prints using special recording devices and light sources and X-ray images. It is mainly focused on examples of pictorial records of hidden elements of book binding or book materials, visualization of information invisible to the normal eye. The outputs of selected methods applied during the survey of the library collection, which are described here, including a critical evaluation of their possibilities and limitations, are presented here.

After we will finish with the intellectual part we can get together in one of the Old Town taverns - gardens, hidden spots.
