The exhibition presents the work of traditional Czech glassmakers from the “Crystal Valley” in the form of an exhibition of 27 sets of glasses designed by Czech glass designers especially for the Czech Presidency of the EU in 2022 – each representing one member state. They are accompanied with exhibition information panels and a short movie of the production.
Another part of the exhibition presents handmade traditional glass pearl Christmas decorations from Poniklá. This production of Christmas tree decorations from blown glass beads was inscribed in 2020 on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
