ARS ET VIRTUS: CROATIA – HUNGARY. 800 YEARS OF COMMON HERITAGE (virtual exhibition)
Virtual exhibition :
This virtual exhibition is a joint project of the Hungarian National Museum (Budapest) and Klovićevi dvori Gallery (Zagreb). Our goal is to present the Croatian-Hungarian cultural and historical relations in a broad and illustrative context, thus strenghtening the feeling of belonging together in the two nations. Since our common heritage of 800 years is immense, we have divided our exhibition into 8 chapters. The virtual exhibition, currently consisting of 60 objects, guides the visitor – partly chronologically and partly thematically – through representative spaces of the Hungarian National Museum: the Dome, the Ceremonial Hall and the Fireplace Hall.
