|One hundred years ago, on January 1, 1922, three laws from 1920 came into force that enacted the unification of Prague with her near and distant suburbs into one territorial and administrative unit unofficially called Greater Prague. The present exhibition commemorates this anniversary. The eight panels (16 themes) present the territorial, administrative, political, economic, construction, social and cultural development of Prague in the period between the two world wars - the period when the phrase Greater Prague was used as a synonym for the Capital City of Prague. The exhibition pays special attention to the city administration and its representatives, who played a key role in transforming, in less than two decades, a conglomerate of unequally developed cities, villages, or semi-villages into a representative capital of the young republic.
