Dear Czech History Lovers,
The Czech Coronation Jewels CD-ROM that you just put in your computer will show you something very special. An incredible testimony of human skills through thousands of years of history is introduced through technology that is only several years old; this detailed viewing would have been impossible just a few years ago. You will be surprised and pleased by the large photo documentation that will show you the beauty of the goldsmith techniques and precious stones up close and will also learn a lot about the history of the symbol par excellence of Czech history, which the coronation jewels definitely are.
The Czech coronation jewels are nowadays displayed only at special occasions and always only for a short time. Even though our presentation cannot fully replace seeing the jewels for real and convey the aura of the insignia that our most prominent rulers used to touch, we trust that you will be captivated by the surprising findings and the touch of elegance and aesthetic magic of the presented insignia.
We wish you pleasant viewing
ak. soch. Andrej Šumbera and ing. Zdeněk Proks
