The University of Nova Gorica Participates in Organising the “Emperor of Four Thrones – A Life Journey of Charles IV in Fourteen Stops” Exhibition

On 20 March 2018 at 3:00 pm, an exhibition dedicated to the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire Charles IV (1316–1378) will be launched in the Lanthieri Mansion (Main Square, 8, Vipava) in Nova Gorica. The organisers of the “Emperor of Four Thrones – A Life Journey of Charles IV in Fourteen Stops” exhibition are the University of Nova Gorica and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Slovenia. The Czech Republic’s Ambassador Věra Zemanová and the Rector of the University of Nova Gorica, Prof. Dr. Danilo Zavrtanik, will attend the opening ceremony.

The exhibition tells about the life and work of one of the most famous emperors of the Late Middle Ages, who had a serious impact on the history of the entire Europe. The King of Bohemia and the Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV became famous, primarily due to his wisdom, education and diplomacy skills. Among his main achievements, there is the opening of the University of Vienna (1365), which greatly contributed to the development of education and science. His vision of a united Europe without wars is topical until present days.

The exhibition will run from 20 March to 13 April 2018. The schedule is from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.
