Exhibition at the Bouzov Castle – 700 Years on Paper and in Stone

A brand-new exhibition called “700 Years on Paper and in Stone” takes place at the Bouzov Castle. We designed the concept of the exhibition and the graphic design. The exhibition shows transformations of the Castle, exhibits that map its development, information about the aristocratic families that owned the Castle and, last but not least, facsimiles of documents, the most important being a reproduction of a document dated December 1317 which includes the first mention of the Bouzov Castle. We also created reproductions of documents. So do not hesitate and visit the Bouzov Castle.
