Cultural Revolution in the Heart of Europe: Prague, Budapest and Ljubjiana Gavin Plumley Thursday 23 April 2020

During the 19th Century when many Central european countries were still under the control of the Habsburgs in Vienna, art and culture were often the only ways in which the Empire's constituent crownlands could express national indentity. One hundred years after the end of the Habsburg dominance in Central Europe, this Special Interest Day looks at three case studies, the Czech lands, Slovenia and Hungary, through the prism of their capital cities.
