The period of 5th and 4th centuries B.C.E. is considered one of peaks of Prehistoric development of the Central European region and is characterized by appearance of La Tène culture, the civilisation of the ancient Celts. It is precisely this period of time when our homeland actively communicated with the ancient Mediterranean cultures.
Visitors of this exhibition can admire the exhibited archaeological finds not only with their eyes but also by touch – just follow our haptic path.
