Czech Crown Jewels exhibition
We are honoured that our instruments have traditionally monitored the climatic conditions at the Czech Crown Jewels.
These days, our IoT dataloggers are being used for online monitoring of the exhibition of the Czech Crown Jewels in St. Vitus Cathedral at Prague Castle.
The jewels are exhibited on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Czech Republic. In addition to the jewels themselves, the St. Wenceslas Chapel displays the skull of St. Wenceslas and the funeral jewels of King Přemysl Otakar II.
The Czech crown jewels include the St. Wenceslas Crown, the royal scepter, the royal apple, leather cases for the crown, scepter and apple, a cushion under the crown, a coronation cloak with ermine accessories, and a stole, belt and the so-called maniple. The St Wenceslas Crown was made between 1345 and 1346 by Charles IV for his coronation as King of Bohemia, making it the fourth oldest in Europe.
